The Green-tailed Warbler (Microligea palustris), also known as the Green-tailed Ground Warbler, is a species of songbird. Generally placed in the New World "warbler" family Parulidae, it constitutes a monotypic genus Microligea. Recently it has turned out to be too distant from the Parulidae proper to be included there with good justification.
It is found in the Dominican Republic and Haiti. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests, subtropical or tropical moist montane forests, and heavily degraded former forest.
