The Tropical Scrubwren or Beccari's Scrubwren (Sericornis beccarii) is a bird species. Placed in the family Pardalotidae in the Sibley-Ahlquist taxonomy, this has met with opposition and indeed is now known to be wrong; they rather belong to the independent family Acanthizidae.

It is found in tropical moist forests of northern Australia, Indonesia, and Papua New Guinea.

It is now considered conspecific with the Large-billed Scrubwren, S. magnirostris.[verification needed]
