1 Subfamilies and component genera broadly follow Moyle et al. (2012) [Moyle, 2012 #14713]; however, almost half the species remain to be sampled, and quite often the type species for genera remain unscreened meaning that much here is provisional. In the circumstances it has seemed best to avoid placing small genera in synonymy when there is a sufficient reason to retain them.
2 Considered to form a superspecies with S. badeigularis by Sibley & Monroe (1990) [Sibley, 1990 #3636].
3 For rediscovery and support for species ranking; see King & Donahue (2006) [King, 2006 #10449].
4 For date correction see Dickinson et al. (2011) [Dickinson, 2011 #13287].
5 For treatment as a separate species from S. chocolatinus, see Collar & Robson (2007) [Collar, 2007 #12226].
6 For treatment as a separate species from S. chocolatinus, see Collar & Robson (2007) [Collar, 2007 #12226].
7 For treatment as a separate species from S. chocolatinus, see Collar & Robson (2007) [Collar, 2007 #12226].
8 For recognition of this genus see Collar & Robson (2007) [Collar, 2007 #12226]. A proposal to create a monotypic family for this taxon has appeared after our literature cut-off date; see Alström et al. (2014) [Alström, 2014 #15598].
9 New name for Spiloptera Jerdon, 1862, preoccupied by Spiloptera Zetterstedt, 1860 [Diptera]. Jerdon's type species, by monotypy, was based on a Blyth name Troglodytes punctatus that was also preoccupied.
10 Includes Xiphirhynchus, see Dong Feng et al. (2010) [Dong Feng, 2010 #12511], Reddy & Moyle (2011) [Reddy, 2011 #13235], Moyle et al. (2012) [Moyle, 2012 #14713].
11 Species limits and sequence based on Reddy & Moyle (2011) [Reddy, 2011 #13235]; who applied a PSC approach.
12 Includes namdapha Ripley et al. (1980) [Ripley, 1980 #3330]; see Collar & Robson (2007) [Collar, 2007 #12226].
13 Placed in superciliaris by Rasmussen & Anderton (2005) [Rasmussen, 2005 #4749].
14 For treatment as two species see Collar & Robson (2007) [Collar, 2007 #12226].
15 Considered to form a superspecies with P. schisticeps and P. montanus by Sibley & Monroe (1990) [Sibley, 1990 #3636].
16 For recognition of two subspecies in Sri Lanka see Phillips (1978) [Phillips, 1978 #3070] and Ripley (1982) [Ripley, 1982 #3332].
17 Includes subspecies transferred from P. schisticeps based on molecular studies by Reddy & Moyle (2011) [Reddy, 2011 #13235] and Song Rui et al. (2011) [Song Rui, 2011 #13471].
18 Placed in the synonymy of P. schisticeps olivaceus by Collar & Robson (2007) [Collar, 2007 #12226], but recognised by Wells (2007) [Wells, 2007 #10194] and placed in two different groups by Reddy & Moyle (2011) [Moyle, 2011 #13235]. Placement provisional as resolution seems to require further sampling and perhaps the screening of type specimens.
19 Collar & Robson (2007) [Collar, 2007 #12226] reported lowland and montane populations in Sumatra that may be distinct.
20 Subspecies groups based on Reddy & Moyle (2011) [Reddy, 2011 #13235] and Song et al. (2011) [Song, 2011 #13471]. Treatment tentative; greater clarity is needed regarding evaluation of voucher specimens compared to type specimens.
21 Includes subspecies transferred from P. schisticeps based on molecular studies by Reddy & Moyle (2011) [Reddy, 2011 #13235] and Song et al. (2011) [Song Rui, 2011 #13471].
22 Includes bhamoensis; see Collar & Robson (2007) [Collar, 2007 #12226].
23 Treated as a synonym of reconditus by Deignan (1964) [Deignan, 1964 #1250] and implicitly by Collar & Robson (2007) [Collar, 2007 #12226]; however, Reddy & Moyle (2011) [Reddy, 2011 #13235] listed these two names in distinct groups; thus provisionally accepted here.
24 Includes laurentei, see Meyer de Schauensee (1984) [Meyer de Schauensee, 1984 #4726] and Cheng (1987) [Cheng Tso-hsin, 1987 #739]. But see Collar & Robson (2007) [Collar, 2007 #12226] and the tree in Song Rui et al. (2011) [Song Rui, 2011 #13471] which suggests further study is needed.
25 For recognition see Collar & Robson (2007) [Collar, 2007 #12226].
26 A new name for intermedius Cheng, 1962, which was preoccupied.
27 For recognition of a second clade of scimitar-babbler, see Dong Feng et al. (2010) [Dong Feng, 2010 #12511], Reddy & Moyle (2011) [Reddy, 2011 #13235].
28 Baker (1930) [Baker, 1930 #163] coined this name by accident, citing Hodgson, 1836 but Hodgson had in fact used Erythrogonys, which was preoccupied. Baker's name is not preoccupied by Erythrogenys von Brandt as that was a nomen emendatum and has no standing.
29 Megapomatorhinus Moyle et al., 2012 [Moyle, 2012 #14713] is a synonym. Art. 13 of the Code (I.C.Z.N., 1999) [I.C.Z.N., 1999 #2059] applies only to names after 1930 making Baker's name available.
30 Omitted by Deignan (1964) [Deignan, 1964 #1250].
31 Considered to form a superspecies with E. erythrocnemis by Sibley & Monroe (1990) [Sibley, 1990 #3636].
32 Ranges of erythrogenys and erythrocnemis interdigitate, with no evidence of hybridisation; see Rasmussen & Anderton (2005) [Rasmussen, 2005 #4748].
33 For date correction see McAllan & Bruce (2002) [McAllan, 2002 #2584].
34 For recognition see Rasmussen & Anderton (2005) [Rasmussen, 2005 #4748]. But see Collar & Robson (2007) [Collar, 2007 #12226].
35 Subspecies groups derived from treatment as four species by Collar & Robson (2007) [Collar, 2007 #12226].
36 Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533] used Deignan's emendation dedekeni which Deignan had researched; however, the internal information is not consistent with his findings and an emendation is not justified.
37 Tentatively includes sowerbyi; see Cheng Tso-hsin (1987) [Cheng Tso-hsin, 1987 #739].
38 Includes abbreviatus; see Collar & Robson (2007) [Collar, 2007 #12226], seen as only differing clinally.
39 Species inclusion and sequence based on Moyle et al. (2012) [Moyle, 2012 #14713].
