52 Placed among the Genera Incertae Sedis in Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533] due to conflicting evidence as it its relationships. Finally corroborated as belonging to the Cisticolidae; see Olsson et al. (2013) [Olsson, 2013 #14702].
53 Spelled lopesi in Watson (1986) [Watson, 1986 #4449] and in Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533], however original spelled lopezi and no internal information permits emendation.
54 For treatment of this as separate from C. simplex, and retention as a broad species including the undosus and stierlingi subspecies groups, see Grimes et al. (1997) [Grimes, 1997 #1821]. But see Ryan (2006) [Ryan, 2006 #15593].

62 Treated as two species by Collar & Robson (2007) [Collar, 2007 #12226].
63 No published molecular information traced. Based on morphology and voice this species could belong in any of about three 'sylviid' families.
64 For recognition see Nguembock et al. (2007) [Nguembock, 2007 #9988].
65 Described as a separate species, but this considered to be a PSC species and thus here treated as a subspecies.
66 Implicitly includes petrophila Clancey, 1990 [Clancey, 1990 #949]; see Dean in Hockey et al. (2005) [Hockey, 2005 #12724].

75 In retaining this form in this species we follow Tye (1997) [Tye, 1997 #3892].
76 The date 1896 in Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533] was a typographical error.
77 For recognition see Tye (1997) [Tye, 1997 #3892].

93 For treatment as a single broad species we follow Tye (1997) [Tye, 1997 #3892] and Dowsett et al. (2008) [Dowsett, 2008 #12725]. But see Ryan (2006) [Ryan, 2006 #15593] where five species are suggested, although without supporting molecular evidence.
94 Includes grisea see Tye (1997) [Tye, 1997 #3892], and nyansae see Zimmerman et al. (1996) [Zimmerman, 1996 #4328].
95 Includes brookei Herremans et al., 1999 [Herremans, 1999 #1954]. The earlier name was overlooked by them and by Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533].
96 For recognition see Tye (1997) [Tye, 1997 #3892].
97 Includes ambigua; see Tye (1997) [Tye, 1997 #3892].

104 Tye (1997) [Tye, 1997 #3892] explained that calls ascribed to this belong instead to C. dorsti now C. guinea.
105 An earlier name for C. dorsti Chappuis & Érard, 1993 [Chappuis, 1991 #695], see Dowsett-Lemaire et al. (2005) [Dowsett-Lemaire, 2005 #1422].
106 Misspelled nanus in Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533], but a noun and spelling invariable.
107 For recognition see Tye (1997) [Tye, 1997 #3892].
108 Recognition follows Dean in Hockey et al. (2005) [Hockey, 2005 #12724]. But see Ryan & Dean (2006) [Ryan, 2006 #15594].
109 Published in March 1864; ferrugineus published in July.
110 Forms a superspecies with C. angusticauda; see Watson et al. (1986) [Watson, 1986 #4449]. For alternative view that these two are conspecific, see Dowsett et al. (2008) [Dowsett, 2008 #12725].
111 Dual original spellings; see David et al. (2009) [David, 2009 #11541].
112 Implicitly includes dumicola; see Dean in Hockey et al. (2005) [Hockey, 2005 #12724]. But see Ryan (2006) [Ryan, 2006 #15593].
113 Correct original spelling. Spelling silberbaueri, used in Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533], was an ISS.
114 For alternative treatment as a race of C. fulvicapilla, see Dowsett et al. (2008) [Dowsett, 2008 #12725].
115 Original spelling augusticauda but corrected within the same volume.
116 For recognition see Cramp et al. (1992) [Cramp, 1992 #1088] and Ryan (2006) [Ryan, 2006 #15593].

118 Original spelling of Swinhoe (1859) [Swinhoe, 1859 #3796] verified.
119 Lynes's MS name appeared a year earlier in Bartels & Stresemann (1929) [Bartels, 1929 #223]; see Mees (1996) [Mees, 1996 #2638] but no description was attached.
120 Date 1842 in Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533] was erroneous.
121 For separation of this species from C. brunnescens see Urban et al. (1997) [Urban, 1997 #3901].
122 Includes taciturnus Clancey, 1992 [Clancey, 1992 #959] see Tye (1997) [Tye, 1997 #3892]. But see also Clancey (1997) [Clancey, 1997 #971].
123 Historic inclusion of the Solomons in the range seems to have been an error.
124 Includes mixta [sic] see Lynes (1930) [Lynes, 1930 #2458].
125 For transfer to Cisticolidae see Alström et al. (2006) [Alström, 2006 #9747].
126 Citation in Watson & Traylor (1986) [Watson, 1986 #4449] incorrect. Correct citation linked from number in square brackets after author and date.
127 Contra Watson (1986) [Watson, 1986 #4449] this first appeared on p. 104 of the journal cited. It appeared in June and has precedence over the name vulpinus which appeared in July.
128 For use of this name see Olsson et al. (2013) [Olsson, 2013 #14702].
129 Includes Heliolais and Urorhipis; see Olsson et al. (2013) [Olsson, 2013 #14702]. For treatment in the family Cisticolidae see Sibley & Monroe (1990) [Sibley, 1990 #3636].
130 Sequence of species essentially unchanged pending fuller taxon sampling.
131 For recognition see Abdulali & Unnithan (1986) [Abdulali, 1986 #5715] and Rasmussen & Anderton (2005) [Rasmussen, 2005 #4749].
132 Burmese birds need review; they may be best treated as assamica.
133 Subspecies groups used here based on split by Rasmussen & Anderton (2005) [Rasmussen, 2005 #4749]; which is here deferred pending further information of subspecies outside the Indian subcontinent.
134 For correct date of publication see Evenhuis (2003) [Evenhuis, 2003 #10177].
135 Doubtfully distinct from superciliaris; see Rasmussen & Anderton (2005) [Rasmussen, 2005 #4749].
136 Authorship credited to Hodgson by Watson et al. (1986) [Watson, 1986 #4449] but see Dickinson (2004) [Dickinson, 2004 #1388].
137 The name leggei Watson, 1986 [Watson, 1986 #4449] is not retained since pectoralis Smith is here treated in Malcorus.
138 Original spelling akyildzi; the spelling used is a justified emendation based on information in the original publication.
139 Year of publication correctly given by Watson et al. (1986: 140) [Watson, 1986 #4449] but previously miscited from 1849 a date wrongly associated with the introduction of its earlier, but preoccupied, name robusta.
140 For reasons to treat this as monotypic see Mees (1996) [Mees, 1996 #2638]; thus includes subspecies prinia.
141 For correction to authorship; see Pittie & Dickinson (2010) [Pittie, 2010 #12619].
142 We split this very tentatively from P. subflava; for a brief discussion see Inskipp et al. (1996) [Inskipp, 1996 #2069].
143 Omitted by Watson et al. (1986) [Watson, 1986 #4449].
144 Forms a superspecies with P. somalica, see Watson et al. (1986) [Watson, 1986 #4449].
145 First described in the Journal für Ornithologie.
146 For recognition see Irwin (1997) [Irwin, 1997 #2085].
147 Includes ortleppi; see Dean in Hockey et al. (2005) [Hockey, 2005 #12724].
148 For separation from P. maculosa see Dean in Hockey (2005) [Hockey, 2005 #12724].
149 Formerly Red-winged Warbler; for transfer from the genus Heliolais see Olsson et al. (2013) [Olsson, 2013 #14702].
150 Formerly Red-faced Apalis; for transfer from the genus Apalis; see Olsson et al. (2013) [Olsson, 2013 #14702].
151 For transfer from Genera Incertae Sedis to the Cisticolidae; see Olsson et al. (2013) [Olsson, 2013 #14702]. However, note that the species O. cucullatus, is not a cisticolid; see the monotypic cettioid genus Phyllergates.
152 Species recognition and sequence of species based on Fig. 4 in Sheldon et al. (2012) [Sheldon, 2012 #14710].
153 For treatment as part of O. castaneiceps; see Dickinson et al. (1991) [Dickinson, 1991 #1361]. Molecular evidence shows this to be a separate species, sister to O. sericeus; see Sheldon et al. (2012) [Sheldon, 2012 #14710].
154 Includes nuntius; see Dickinson et al. (1991) [Dickinson, 1991 #1361].
155 Although no thorough review has been published to support the split accepted by Dickinson et al. (1991) [Dickinson, 1991 #1361] we tentatively follow in accepting O. castaneiceps.
156 The new name anambensis Watson, 1986 [Watson, 1986 #4449] was superfluous as the cited homonym was by then applied to a taxon in the genus Prinia.
157 Much pre-1986 literature used this name or 'sepium' for taxa now treated as O. sericeus see Dickinson et al. (1991) [Dickinson, 1991 #1361]. Hence, so far, records from Palawan relate to O. sericeus not to O. ruficeps. Old 'Cochinchine' records not corroborated.
158 For correct spelling see Watson et al. (1986) [Watson, 1986 #4449].
159 Considered to occur in sympatry with the apparently closely related O. atrogularis. May thus require further study.
160 The valid date of publication is that of the printed issue; the PDF made available earlier was changed and thus electronic publication is disqualified under Art. 9.9 of the Code (I.C.Z.N., 2012) [I.C.Z.N., 2012 #15381].
161 For treatment as a separate species from O. castaneiceps; see Sheldon et al. (2012) [Sheldon, 2012 #14710] who found it a sister to O. derbianus.
162 Correct original spelling. The spelling chloronotos in Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533] was an ISS.
163 Sheldon et al. (2012) [Sheldon, 2012 #14710] found this and O. chloronotus to be sister species.
