1 For erection and spelling of this new family name see Cibois et al. (2010) [Cibois, 2010 #12442].
2 Sequence of genera based on Table 1 in Fregin et al (2012) [Fregin, 2012 #14321].
3 This genus was placed near the babblers by Deignan (1964) [Deignan, 1964 #1253], but Cibois et al. (1999) [Cibois, 1999 #763] found evidence that it is a warbler.
4 Includes Hypositta perdita D.S. Peters, 1996 [Peters, 1996 #3019] see Fjeldså et al. (2013) [Fjeldså, 2013 #14446].
5 For the move from the bulbuls (genus Phyllastrephus) to the warblers and for use of this generic name see Cibois et al. (2001) [Cibois, 2001 #765].
6 Previously treated within the genus Neomixis, but deserves this monotypic genus see Cibois et al. (1999) [Cibois, 1999 #763].
7 Treated as a warbler by Watson et al. (1986) [Watson, 1986 #4449].
8 For the transfer from the bulbuls (genus Phyllastrephus) to this genus see Cibois et al. (2001) [Cibois, 2001 #765].
9 Sharpe (1883) [Sharpe, 1883 #7831] formally proposed the family but the genus name was introduced in the work here cited.
10 For recognition see Safford & Hawkins (2013) [Safford, 2013 #14829]. But see Fishpool & Tobias (2005) [Fishpool, 2005 #12205].
11 For recognition see Safford & Hawkins (2013) [Safford, 2013 #14829]. But see Fishpool & Tobias (2005) [Fishpool, 2005 #12205].
12 Previously treated within the genus Phyllastrephus by Rand & Deignan (1960) [Rand, 1960 #3196], but see Cibois et al. (2001) [Cibois, 2001 #765].
13 Not examined by Cibois et al. (2001) [Cibois, 2001 #765], but seems best kept in the same family as Cryptosylvicola pending availability of further evidence. See Cibois et al. (2010) [Cibois, 2010 #12442].
