1 For recognition at family rank, and for sequence of genera, see Fregin et al. (2009) [Fregin, 2009 #11614].
2 For treatment as a race of N. typica; see Louette et al. (1988) [Louette, 1988 #2429] and Safford & Hawkins (2013) [Safford, 2013 #14829].
3 For recognition see Kennerley & Pearson (2010) [Kennerley, 2010 #12739]; but see Clement (2006) [Clement, 2006 #15586].
4 For treatment as separate from N. typica see Schulenberg et al. (1993) [Schulenberg, 1993 #3546].
5 For treatment as a separate species from N. typica; see Louette et al. (1988) [Louette, 1988 #2429].
6 For recognition of this genus see Fregin et al. (2009) [Fregin, 2009 #11614].
7 For recognition of distinct genus see Fregin et al. (2009) [Fregin, 2009 #11614], who used the name Phragmaticola as had Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533], a spelling corrected by Dickinson & Gregory (2006) [Dickinson, 2006 #9471]. However, Pittie & Dickinson (2013) [Pittie, 2013 #14889] have shown Arundinax to have priority and to be available as it has been used since 1899.
8 The new name stegmanni Watson, 1985 [Watson, 1985 #9304] should be used if this species is placed in Acrocephalus; otherwise it should not.
9 A poorly defined race, see Kennerley & Pearson (2010) [Kennerley, 2010 #12739]; not accepted by Svensson (1992) [Svensson, 1992 #15374].
10 Helbig & Siebold (1999) [Helbig, 1999 #1935] used this name as a subgenus separate from Hippolais; Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533] raised this to a full genus. Subsequent molecular studies, e.g. by Fregin et al. (2009) [Fregin, 2009 #11614] corroborate this treatment.
11 Includes Chloropeta; see Fregin et al. (2009) [Fregin, 2009 #11614].
12 Includes annectens, see Svensson (2001) [Svensson, 2001 #15062] and Kennerley & Pearson (2010) [Kennerley, 2010 #12739].
13 For separation from I. caligata see Stepanyan (1990) [Stepanyan, 1990 #3721].
14 Includes tamariceti; see Svensson (2001) [Svensson, 2001 #15062].
15 Doubtfully separable from reiseri; see Kennerley & Pearson (2010) [Kennerley, 2010 #12739].
16 For recognition see Kennerley & Pearson (2010) [Kennerley, 2010 #12739].
17 For recommended separation from I. pallida see Helbig & Seibold (1999) [Helbig, 1999 #1935] and Svensson (2001) [Svensson, 2001 #15062].
18 For transfer of this and the next species from Chloropeta to Iduna see Fregin et al. (2009) [Fregin, 2009 #11614].
19 Sometimes cited as Conrad von Baldenstein but see Conti (1947) [Conti, 1947 #6022].
20 For treatment as monotypic see Stepanyan (1990) [Stepanyan, 1990 #3721]; thus magnirostris is included.
21 Considered by Watson et al. (1986) [Watson, 1986 #4449] to form a superspecies with H. icterina.
22 Includes alaris. We treat this as monotypic following Stepanyan (1990) [Stepanyan, 1990 #3721].
23 Sequence of species based on Fregin et al. (2009) [Fregin, 2009 #11614]; Cibois et al. (2011) [Cibois, 2011 #12849] and Saitoh et al. (2012) [Saitoh, 2012 #14478]. Species limits based on Kennerley & Pearson (2010) [Kennerley, 2010 #12739] except where indicated.
24 Two recently proposed subspecies await evaluation: sachalinensis Malykh & Red'kin, 2011 [Malykh, 2011 #15238] and voronovi Malykh & Red'kin, 2011 [Malykh, 2011 #15238].
25 Includes albiventris see Stepanyan (2003) [Stepanyan, 2003 #4769]. But see Watson et al. (1986) [Watson, 1986 #4449] and Kennerley & Pearson (2010) [Kennerley, 2010 #12739].
26 Originally named Phyllopneuste macrorhyncha Hume, 1869 [Hume, 1869 #6584], before fuller publication in 1871 in the combination Acrocephalus macrorhynchus, but this name is preoccupied in a broad genus Acrocephalus see Oberholser (1905) [Oberholser, 1905 #2806].
27 Treated as monotypic by Cramp et al. (1992) [Cramp, 1992 #1088]; thus includes laricus and turcomana.
28 A. baeticatus is here subsumed following Dowsett et al. (2008) [Dowsett, 2008 #12725]; but see Dyrcz (2006) [Dyrcz, 2006 #15587] and Kennerley & Pearson (2010) [Kennerley, 2010 #12739].
29 Subspecies groups are based on species split in Kennerley & Pearson (2010) [Kennerley, 2010 #12739].
30 Treated as a race of A. baeticatus by Pearson (1997) [Pearson, 1997 #2990]; but placed with A. scirpaceus by Helbig & Seibold (1999) [Helbig, 1999 #1935].
31 Implicitly includes fraterculus; see Pearson (1997) [Pearson, 1997 #2990].
32 Considered by Dyrcz (2006) [Dyrcz, 2006 #15587] to form a superspecies with A. concinens and A. tangorum.
33 Recognition based on molecular evidence of Leisler et al. (1997) [Leisler, 1997 #2366]; see Kennerley & Pearson (2010) [Kennerley, 2010 #12739].
34 Includes capistratus, recognised by Dyrcz (2006) [Dyrcz, 2006 #15587]; see Kennerley & Pearson (2010) [Kennerley, 2010 #12739].
35 Historically attached to A. agricola, e.g. by Vaurie (1959) [Vaurie, 1959 #3961], but placed in A. bistrigiceps by Watson et al. (1986) [Watson, 1986 #4449]. Molecular studies show it deserves treatment at species rank; see Helbig & Seibold (1999) [Helbig, 1999 #1935] and Fregin et al. (2009) [Fregin, 2009 #11614].
36 Date 1981 in Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533] was a typographical error.
37 For recognition see Dean in Hockey et al. (2005) [Hockey, 2005 #12724]; but see Kennerley & Pearson (2010) [Kennerley, 2010 #12739] who include it in leptorhynchus.
38 For recognition see Pearson (1997) [Pearson, 1997 #2990].
39 Formerly included with A. rodericanus in the genus Bebrornis, but see Helbig & Seibold (1999) [Helbig, 1999 #1935].
40 For recognition, see Kennerley & Pearson (2010) [Kennerley, 2010 #12739]; included in nominate subspecies by Dyrcz (2006) [Dyrcz, 2006 #15587].
41 May comprise more than one species see Fleischer et al. (2007) [Fleischer, 2007 #10601] and Cibois et al. (2011) [Cibois, 2011 #12849].
42 Correct original spelling. Spelling vaughanii in Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533] was an ISS.
43 This species and the next separated from A. vaughani by Graves (1992) [Graves, 1992 #1786].
44 For a suggestion that this be seen as a synonym of nominate musae see Mees (1991) [Mees, 1991 #2635]; but see findings of Cibois et al. (2011) [Cibois, 2011 #12849].
45 Treated as a polytypic species by Watson et al. (1986) [Watson, 1986 #4449]; but see Cibois et al. (2011) [Cibois, 2011 #12849] and Saitoh et al. (2012) [Saitoh, 2012 #14478].
46 For treatment as a species separate from A. caffer see Cibois et al. (2008) [Cibois, 2008 #10660] and Cibois et al. (2011) [Cibois, 2011 #12849].

48 For treatment as a species separate from A. caffer see Watson (1986) [Watson, 1986 #4449].
49 Considered a synonym of atyphus by Cibois et al. (2011) [Cibois, 2011 #13336].
50 Considered a synonym of atyphus by Cibois et al. (2011) [Cibois, 2011 #13336].
51 For treatment as a species separate from A. luscinius, and for substantiation of its origins, see Cibois et al. (2011) [Cibois, 2011 #12834].
52 For recognition and treatment as a separate species from A. luscinia see Cibois et al. (2011) [Cibois, 2011 #12849] and Saitoh et al. (2012) [Saitoh, 2012 #14478]. Spelling hivae in Watson et al. (1986) [Watson, 1986 #4449] was an ISS.
53 For treatment as a separate species from A. stentoreus see Leisler et al. (1997) [Leisler, 1997 #2366], Fregin et al. (2009) [Fregin, 2009 #11614] and Saitoh et al. (2012) [Saitoh, 2012 #14478].
54 For transfer from A. stentoreus to A. australis see Cibois et al. (2011) [Cibois, 2011 #12849]. Further sampling required as this name is being applied to multiple populations which may not all belong to this species.
55 Includes carterae, recognised by Dyrcz (2006) [Dyrcz, 2006 #15587]; see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524] and Kennerley & Pearson (2010) [Kennerley, 2010 #12739].
