1 Following the evidence that typical Sylvia species seemed closer to babblers than to other groups of warblers, see Cibois (2003) [Cibois, 2003 #768] much revision has occurred as evidence by the number of families now considered need to accommodate the two original broad families.
2 The sequence of genera is based on Gelang et al. (2009) [Gelang, 2009 #11542] and Moyle et al. (2012) [Moyle, 2012 #14713]. The arrangement of parrotbill genera and their allies follows Yeung et al. (2011) [Yeung, 2011 #12890] and Penhallurick & Robson (2009) [Penhallurick, 2009 #11902] as corrected by Penhallurick (2010) [Penhallurick, 2010 #13507].
3 Species follows 'clade 1' of Voelker & Light (2011) [Voelker, 2011 #12886]. Subsumes genera Horizornis and Pseudoalcippe see Voelker et al. (2009) [Voelker, 2009 #11687].
4 Includes atlantis see Roselaar in Cramp et al. (1992) [Cramp, 1992 #1088].
5 Includes koenigi see Roselaar in Cramp et al. (1992) [Cramp, 1992 #1088].
6 Includes woodwardi; see Svensson (1992) [Svensson, 1992 #15374]. But see Aymí & Gargallo (2006) [Aymí, 2006 #15585].
7 Previously Horizorhinus dohrni. For placement here see Voelker et al. (2009) [Voelker, 2009 #11687] and Moyle et al. (2012) [Moyle, 2012 #14713].
8 Previously treated in a monotypic genus Pseudoalcippe; this is a sister taxon to Sylvia, see Voelker et al. (2009) [Voelker, 2009 #11687] and was placed in Sylvia by Moyle et al. (2012) [Moyle, 2012 #14713].
9 Prigogine (1985) [Prigogine, 1985 #3152] proposed reversion to a treatment in which this is a separate species as in Deignan (1964) [Deignan, 1964 #1250], see Collar & Robson (2007) [Collar, 2007 #12226]; but see Dowsett & Dowsett-Lemaire (1993) [Dowsett, 1993 #1416].
10 Implicitly includes micra, hildegardae Ripley & Heinrich, 1966 [Ripley, 1966 #3320], poliothorax Cunningham-van Someren & Schifter, 1981 [Cunningham-van Someren, 1981 #1103], and loima Cunningham-van Someren & Schifter, 1981 [Cunningham-van Someren, 1981 #1103]; see Collar & Robson (2007) [Collar, 2007 #12226].
11 Treated as a synonym of stierlingi by Collar & Robson (2007) [Collar, 2007 #12226].
12 For signal to possible relationship with S. atricapillus and S. abyssinica see Johansson et al. (2008) [Johansson, 2008 #10998]. Not screened by Voelker et al. (2009) [Voelker, 2009 #11687] causing retention of monotypic genus.
13 For suggested placement in Sylvia, see Moyle et al. (2012) [Moyle, 2012 #14713].
14 Recognition of this genus is based on the deep divergence of between Sylvia clade 1 and Sylvia clades 2 and 3 recovered in the study of Voelker & Light (2011) [Voelker, 2011 #12886].
15 Includes Parisoma see Dietzen et al. (2008) [Dietzen, 2008 #11216].
16 For treatment as a separate species from C. nana see Shirihai et al. (2001) [Shirihai, 2001 #3615]; see also Sangster et al. (2004) [Sangster, 2004 #3475].

18 The diphthong in the original spelling was an oe diphthong.
19 For treatment as a separate species from C. hortensis see Shirihai et al. (2001) [Shirihai, 2001 #3615].
20 Aymí & Gargallo (2006) [Aymí, 2006 #15585] recognised balchanica.
21 For correct date of publication see Steinheimer (2005) [Steinheimer, 2005 #3709].
22 Includes balchanica see Svensson (2012) [Svensson, 2012 #14720].
23 Not 1804 as in Watson et al. (1986) [Watson, 1986 #4449].
24 For recognition see Fry (1997) [Fry, 1997 #1630].
25 The C. curruca/C. althaea complex represents two or three species; see Olsson et al. (2013) [Olsson, 2013 #14716]. Deep DNA divergences between subspecies clades do not match morphology, calls or ecology so despite some evidence of local sympatry further work is required before more than one species is recognised. See also Martens & Steil (1997) [Martens, 1997 #2505] and Shirihai et al. (2001) [Shirihai, 2001 #3615].
26 Includes caucasica; see Olsson et al. (2013) [Olsson, 2013 #14716]. But see Stepanyan (1990) [Stepanyan, 1990 #3721] and Loskot (2001) [Loskot, 2001 #2419] who on morphological grounds considered this a diagnosable taxon.
27 For recognition see Cramp et al. (1992) [Cramp, 1992 #1088], Loskot (2001) [Loskot, 2001 #2419] and Olsson et al. (2013) [Olsson, 2013 #14716].
28 Includes jaxartica and presumably snigirewskii; see Olsson et al. (2013) [Olsson, 2013 #14716], but see Loskot (2005) [Loskot, 2005 #9951] for acceptance of snigirewskii.
29 Stepanyan (1990) [Stepanyan, 1990 #3721] treated monticola as a synonym of althaea, as did Shirihai et al. (2001) [Shirihai, 2001 #3615] and Olsson et al. (2013) [Olsson, 2013 #14716]. But see Loskot (2001) [Loskot, 2001 #2419].
30 Includes chuancheica see Cramp et al. (1992) [Cramp, 1992 #1088] and Olsson et al. (2013) [Olsson, 2013 #14716] who also included telengitica.
31 For evidence of apparent sympatry between minula and althaea see Martens & Steil (1997) [Martens, 1997 #2505].
32 Includes ticehursti see Shirihai et al. (2001) [Shirihai, 2001 #3615].

34 For recognition see Cramp et al. (1992) [Cramp, 1992 #1088].
35 Original spelling; internal evidence supports this. Emendation to e.g. rueppelli as used by Watson (1986) [Watson, 1986 #4449] and Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533] was unjustified.
36 For treatment as three species see Svensson (2013) [Svensson, 2013 #15210], See also Brambilla (2006, 2008, 2010, 2012) [Brambilla, 2006 #9774], [Brambilla, 2008 #10768], [Brambilla, 2010 #12292], [Brambilla, 2012 #15158].

50 For recognition of taxonomic affinities see Gelang et al. (2009) [Gelang, 2009 #11542].
51 Found not to belong in the genus Chrysomma by Moyle et al. (2012) [Moyle, 2012 #14713].
52 For date correction see Dickinson et al. (2011) [Dickinson, 2011 #13287].
53 Treatment in this monotypic genus follows Wolters (1980) [Wolters, 1980 #4263] and Pasquet et al. (2006) [Pasquet, 2006 #7390].

69 Robson (2000) [Robson, 2000 #3368] suggested the two southern populations constitute a separate species; so treated by Collar & Robson (2007) [Collar, 2007 #12226]. Here treated as subspecies groups.
70 For date correction see Dickinson et al. (2011) [Dickinson, 2011 #13287].
71 While internal pages carry date 1994 the cover is dated Feb. 1995.
72 Moyle et al. (2012) [Moyle, 2012 #14713] placed this in the same sylviid clade as Chrysomma and Paradoxornis. See also Barhoum & Burns (2002) [Barhoum, 2002 #213] and Gelang et al. (2009) [Gelang, 2009 #11542].

79 For rejection of treatment as three species by Stepanyan (1998) [Stepanyan, 1998 #3727] see Collar & Robson (2007) [Collar, 2007 #12226].
80 Initially proposed as a subspecies but assigned species rank see Stepanyan (1998) [Stepanyan, 1998 #3727].
81 Subspecies groups derive from suggestions of King & Robson (2008) [King, 2008 #10861] and the two species treatment of Penhallurick & Robson (2009) [Penhallurick, 2009 #11902].
82 Subspecies groups derived from two species treated by Collar & Robson (2007) [Collar, 2007 #12226].
