1 Sequence of genera derived from Gardner et al. (2010) [Gardner, 2010 #12103].
2 For inclusion in the Acanthizidae, as sister to Oreoscopus, see Norman et al. (2009) [Norman, 2009 #11985].
3 Formerly included in Crateroscelis; for recognition as a monotypic genus in Acanthizidae see Christidis (1990) [Christidis, 1990 #15214]. See also Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524], and Gardner et al. (2010) [Gardner, 2010 #12103].
4 Sister to G. mouki, see Nyari & Joseph (2012) [Nyari, 2012 #13650].
5 The name ruficauda Ford & Johnstone, 1983 [Ford, 1983 #1581] was based on foxed specimens of this species; see Schodde (1985) [Schodde, 1985 #3514] and Vuilleumier et al. (1992) [Vuilleumier, 1992 #4066].
6 The form leucothorax is intermediate between notata and dohertyi and presumed intergradient; see Rand & Gilliard (1967) [Rand, 1967 #3199].
7 For date correction see Anon. (1929) [Anon, 1929 #14054].
8 Subspecies personata and flavida intergrade in the region of Cairns; see Ford (1978) [Ford, 1978 #15215]. See map in Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
9 Sister to G. albogularis and G. modesta see Nyari & Joseph (2012) [Nyari, 2012 #13650]; see also Ford (1986) [Ford, 1986 #1583] and Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
10 For recognition see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
11 Sister to G. albogularis, i.e. G. olivacea, see Ford (1986) [Ford, 1986 #1583] and Nyari & Joseph (2012) [Nyari, 2012 #13650].
12 For inclusion of Timor see White & Bruce (1986) [White, 1986 #4194].
13 For correct date see Gage & Stearn (1988) [Gage, 1988 #15747].
14 McAllan (2007) [McAllan, 2007 #9440] considered the name albogularis to have been selected as a prior name to olivacea by Gould acting as First Reviser in 1848, and noting its use since 1899 argued that it should be treated as the valid name. This proposal is under consideration.
15 For recognition see Mees (1986) [Mees, 1986 #2631].
16 Recognition of simplex and rhizophorae by Dickinson et al. (1991) [Dickinson, 1991 #1361] did not consider whether simplex is distinct from Bornean birds; corroboration required.
17 Sometimes separated, but inferentially treated as conspecific; see Ford (1986) [Ford, 1986 #1583].
18 Includes mimikae; see Ford (1983) [Ford, 1983 #1580].
19 Position in sequence inferred from Ford (1986) [Ford, 1986 #1583].
20 For date correction see Quaisser & Eck (2006) [Quaisser, 2006 #7426].
21 Includes whitlocki see Ford (1983) [Ford, 1983 #1580].
22 Treated as a synonym of lifuensis by Dutson (2011) [Dutson, 2011 #13513] who thus acted as First Reviser in assigning precedence to that name.
23 Maintenance of subspecies modesta and geographically intervening insularis consistent with meagre branch distance between modesta and igata see Nyari & Joseph (2012) [Nyari, 2012 #13650]; but see Higgins & Peter (2002) [Higgins, 2002 #13592] and Christidis & Boles (2008) [Christidis, 2008 #11602].
24 Dual original spellings, selection made by original author; see David et al. (2009) [David, 2009 #11541].
25 For correct date of publication see Anon. (1929) [Anon., 1929 #14054].
26 For date correction see Mathews (1938) [Mathews, 1938 #15213].
27 Sister to G. fusca; see Ford (1986) [Ford, 1986 #1583] and Nyari & Joseph (2012) [Nyari, 2012 #13650], with which it comprises a superspecies see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
28 For recognition see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
29 Several areas of intergradation have led to the suppression of the names mathewsi, cairnsi, pallescens, stirlingi and mallee; see map in Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
30 Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524] explained the availability of this name and selected a lectotype.
31 For relationships see Gardner et al. (2010) [Gardner, 2010 #12103].
32 For recognition see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
33 Includes Chthonicola following Schodde & Mason (1999). Now supported by molecular evidence in Gardner et al. (2010); but see Christidis & Boles (2008) [Christidis, 2008 #11602].
34 For reasons to revert to 1801 and not use 1802 see Schodde et al. (2010) [Schodde, 2010 #12422].
