1 Previously Eopsaltriidae but Petroicidae is senior see Bock (1994) [Bock, 1994 #398].
2 Genera and their sequence follow Christidis et al. (2011) [Christidis, 2011 #12848], substantially supported by Loynes et al. (2009) [Loynes, 2009 #11871].
3 Recognition and circumscription follow Christidis et al. (2012) [Christidis, 2012 #14692] based on the DNA findings of Christidis et al. 2011 [Christidis, 2011 #12848].
4 Transfer from the Turdinae to the Petroicidae suggested by Schodde & Christidis in Sibley & Monroe (1990) [Sibley, 1990 #3636] and confirmed by Norman et al. (2009) [Norman, 2009 #11985] and Christidis et al. (2011) [Christidis, 2011 #12848].
5 For a proposal to give this subfamily rank see Christidis et al. (2011) [Christidis, 2011 #12848] and Christidis et al. (2012) [Christidis, 2012 #14692].
6 For date correction see Poggi (1996) [Poggi, 1996 #10153].
7 For a proposal to give this subfamily rank see Christidis et al. (2011) [Christidis, 2011 #12848] and Christidis et al. (2012) [Christidis, 2012 #14692].
8 Revised circumscription follows Christidis et al. (2011) [Christidis, 2011 #12848].
9 Sequence of species derived from Christidis et al. (2011) [Christidis, 2011 #12848] and Loynes et al. (2009) [Loynes, 2009 #11871]. Unsampled P. bivittata and P. archboldi begin the sequence following Mayr (1986) [Mayr, 1986 #2571].
10 For date of publication see Sherborn (1922: cxx) [Sherborn, 1922 #15557]; but see also Sherborn (1929) [Sherborn, 1929 #15749].
11 Considered to form a superspecies with P. rosea; see Mayr (1986) [Mayr, 1986 #2571].
12 For recognition see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
13 For correct date see Sherborn (1930) [Sherborn, 1930 #14154].
14 For treatment as a separate species from P. multicolor see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
15 For date correction see Sherborn (1924) [Sherborn, 1924 #15561].
16 For recognition see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
17 Name first introduced in Lesson's Manuel d'Ornithologie in 1828 five months before the plate in the Voyage; for addition of Garnot as a co-author of this name see Dickinson et al. (2015) [Dickinson, 2015 #15882].
18 For treatment as a separate species from P. australis see Miller & Lambert (2006) [Miller, 2006 #9976] and Gill et al. (2010) [Gill, 2010 #12348]; the two are thus allospecies.
19 First published in the caption to pl. 19 of the Voyage de la Coquille in April 1827; citation from Garnot's text in 1829 by Mayr (1986) [Mayr, 1986 #2571] was mistaken.
20 Circumscription follows Loynes et al. (2009) [Loynes, 2009 #11871], Loynes et al. (2011) [Loynes, 2011 #13228] and Christidis et al. (2011) [Christidis, 2011 #12848].
21 Recognition follows Christidis et al. (2011) [Christidis, 2011 #12848]; for circumscription, see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
22 For recognition see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
23 Recognition follows Christidis et al. (2011) [Christidis, 2011 #12848]; for circumscription, see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
24 Placement in Microecinae follows Boles (2007) [Boles, 2007 #12232] and Loynes et al. (2009) [Loynes, 2009 #11871].
25 For differentiation between NW and NE Australian subspecies groups suggestive of speciation, see Christidis et al. (2011) [Christidis, 2011 #12848].
26 The name terraereginae attaches to a type intermediate between flavissima and laetissima, and so is considered indeterminate, see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
27 Recognised following Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524], but see Christidis et al. (2011) [Christidis, 2011 #12848].
28 For reasons to replace the name M. leucophaea see Schodde (1992) [Schodde, 1992 #3519].
29 Includes barcoo see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
30 For reasons to revert to 1801 and not use 1802 see Schodde et al. (2010) [Schodde, 2010 #12422].
31 Circumscription follows Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524], Loynes et al. (2009) [Loynes, 2009 #11871] and Christidis et al. (2011) [Christidis, 2011 #12848].
32 For the transfer of this genus from the thrushes, as in Ripley (1964) [Ripley, 1964 #3315] to this family see Sibley & Ahlquist (1982) [Sibley, 1982 #3632].
33 For correct date see Duncan (1937) [Duncan, 1937 #1442].
34 Treatment at species rank follows Christidis et al. (2011) [Christidis, 2011 #12848] and assumes that all New Guinea forms are conspecific.
35 For date correction see Poggi (1996) [Poggi, 1996 #10153].
36 The purported race colcloughi is of doubtful provenance see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524] and the name is treated as a nomen dubium.
37 For monotypic treatment see Ford (1971) [Ford, 1971 #1576] and Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524]; thus includes pallidus.
38 For correct date see Duncan (1937) [Duncan, 1937 #1442].
39 Circumscription follows Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524], Loynes et al. (2009) [Loynes, 2009 #11871] and Christidis et al. (2011) [Christidis, 2011 #12848].
40 For recognition as separate from Poecilodryas, see Christidis et al. (2011) [Christidis, 2011 #12848].
41 For revised circumscription see Christidis et al. (2011) [Christidis, 2011 #12848].
42 Considered by Sibley & Monroe (1990) [Sibley, 1990 #3636] to form a superspecies with P. hypoleuca; this would include the now separated P. cerviniventris.
43 For treatment as a separate species from P. superciliosa see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
44 Recognition follows Christidis et al. (2011) [Christidis, 2011 #12848], supported by Boles (2007) [Boles, 2007 #12232] and Christidis & Boles (2008) [Christidis, 2008 #11602]; but see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524] and Loynes et al. (2009) [Loynes, 2009 #11871].
45 Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524] provisionally subsumed this genus in Poecilodryas and subsumed the species H. cinereifrons in this species. See also Boles (2007) [Boles, 2007 #12232], Christidis & Boles (2008) [Christidis, 2008 #11602] and Loynes et al. (2009) [Loynes, 2009 #11871].
46 Birds in the Foya Mts. probably distinct; see Diamond (1985) [Diamond, 1985 #1321].
47 For renewed treatment as a separate species from H. albispecularis; see Boles (2007) [Boles, 2007 #12232] and Christidis et al. (2011) [Christidis, 2011 #12848]; but see also Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
48 For recognition as a separate genus from Poecilodryas; see Christidis et al. (2011) [Christidis, 2011 #12848].
49 Revised circumscription follows Christidis et al. (2011) [Christidis, 2011 #12848], but see Loynes et al. (2009) [Loynes, 2009 #11871].
50 Includes coomooboolaroo and magnirostris see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
51 Includes austina and viridior, see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524]; both names thought to apply to intergradient populations.
52 Authorship credited to White by Mayr (1986) [Mayr, 1986 #2571], but Schodde & Mason (1997) [Schodde, 1997 #3523] have shown that scientific names in this travel journal were those of Shaw.
53 For treatment as a separate species from E. australis see Schodde (1975) [Schodde, 1975 #3503], Christidis & Boles (1994) [Christidis, 1994 #757] and Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524]. But see Loynes et al. (2009) [Loynes, 2009 #11871].
54 For treatment as a separate genus from Eopsaltria see Christidis et al. (2011) [Christidis, 2011 #12848], but see Loynes et al. (2009) [Loynes, 2009 #11871].
55 Conventional circumscription, as used here, supported by Christidis et al. (2011) [Christidis, 2011 #12848], but see Loynes et al. (2009) [Loynes, 2009 #11871].
56 Subspecies groups follow Diamond (1985) [Diamond, 1985 #1321].

59 May be part of the melanogenys subspecies group; see Christidis et al. (2011) [Christidis, 2011 #12848].
60 For correct date see Duncan (1937) [Duncan, 1937 #1442].
61 Formerly included in Petroica but recognised by Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524]. Placement in Eopsaltriinae follows Loynes et al. (2009) [Loynes, 2009 #11871] and Christidis et al. (2011) [Christidis, 2011 #12848].
62 For recognition, as a subspecies of M. cucullata, see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524]; for elevation to species rank, see Christidis et al. (2011) [Christidis, 2011 #12848].
63 For recognition see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].

65 For recognition see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
66 Circumscription including Peneoenanthe follows Loynes et al. (2009) [Loynes, 2009 #11871] and Christidis et al. (2011) [Christidis, 2011 #12848]. But see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
67 Sequence of species derived from combined phylogenies of Loynes et al. (2009) [Loynes, 2009 #11871] and Christidis et al. (2011) [Christidis, 2011 #12848].
68 Gender addressed by David & Gosselin (2002) [David, 2002 #1125], multiple changes occur in specific names.
69 Inclusion of Foya Mts. population follows Beehler & Prawiradilaga (2010) [Beehler, 2010 #12605], but see Diamond (1985) [Diamond, 1985 #1321].
70 Population on west coast may differ from that on east coast of Cape York Peninsula; see Nyári & Joseph (2013) [Nyári, 2013 #14878].
