1 The results of the phylogenetic study by Moyle et al. (2012) [Moyle, 2012 #14713] suffer from limited taxon sampling in some genera and a situation where one genus-group name that seems needed is apparently not available.
2 Sequence of species follows Moyle et al. (2012) [Moyle, 2012 #14713].
3 Treated as monotypic following Mees (1986) [Mees, 1986 #2631] thus including notatum and phoeniceum. For recognition of phoeniceum see Collar & Robson (2007) [Collar, 2007 #12226].
4 Monotypic treatment follows Voous (1950) [Voous, 1950 #8416] and Wells (2007) [Wells, 2007 #10194]. For recognition of moultoni, see Collar & Robson (2007) [Collar, 2007 #12226], who placed the species in monotypic genus Ophrydornis, but molecular data embed this in Malacopteron (Moyle et al., 2012) [Moyle, 2012 #14713].
5 Considered to form a superspecies with M. palawanense by Sibley & Monroe (1990) [Sibley, 1990 #3636].
6 Subspecies groups derived from treatment as two species by Collar & Robson (2007) [Collar, 2007 #12226] and by Rasmussen & Anderton (2005) [Rasmussen, 2005 #4749].
7 For recognition see Collar & Robson (2007) [Collar, 2007 #12226].
8 Allocation of species from the broad genus Alcippe to multiple genera based on Pasquet et al. (2006) [Pasquet, 2006 #7390] and Moyle et al. (2012) [Moyle, 2012 #14713]. Collar & Robson (2007) [Collar, 2007 #12226] placed some species in Pseudominla, but Moyle et al. (2012) [Moyle, 2012 #14713] found monophyly for Schoeniparus including the type species of Pseudominla.
9 Considered to form a superspecies with S. dubius by Sibley & Monroe (1990) [Sibley, 1990 #3636].
10 For recognition see Cheng Tso-hsin (1987) [Cheng Tso-hsin, 1987 #739].
11 For treatment as a separate species from S. brunneus, see Sibley & Monroe (1990) [Sibley, 1990 #3636].
12 Collar & Robson (2007) [Collar, 2007 #12226] treated this as a separate species.
13 Date 1919 in Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533] was miscopied.
14 Awaits molecular screening; placed in this genus on morphological evidence.
15 For transfer from genus Prinia to here see Olsson et al. (2013) [Olsson, 2013 #14702]. The generic name Eurycercus Blyth, 1844, is preoccupied in Arthropoda.
16 Sometimes dated 1844; but see Dickinson & Pittie (2006) [Dickinson, 2006 #9467].
17 Renamed nepalicola Baral et al., 2008 [Baral, 2008 #10985], nipalensis having been a secondary homonym. However, transfer of this species to genus Laticilla resolves the homonymy based on Art. 59.4 of the Code [I.C.Z.N., 1999 #2059].
18 Treated as a separate species from L. burnesii by Rasmussen & Anderton (2005) [Rasmussen, 2005 #4749]. That proposal needs more detailed support and this taxon, which has yet to be screened for its DNA, should be sampled.
19 The genus Ptyrticus is included to provide monophyly; see Moyle et al. (2012) [Moyle, 2012 #14713].
20 Species sequence follow Nguembock et al. (2009) [Nguembock, 2009 #11857] and Moyle et al. (2012) [Moyle, 2012 #14713], following whom Ptyrticus is included.
21 Considered to form a superspecies with I. albipectus by Sibley & Monroe (1990) [Sibley, 1990 #3636].
22 For monotypic treatment see Keith (2000) [Keith, 2000 #2185]; thus includes barakae and trensei Meise, 1978 [Meise, 1978 #2652].
23 Historically treated in the monotypic genus Ptyrticus, but found embedded in Illadopsis by Moyle et al. (2012) [Moyle, 2012 #14713].
24 Authorship mistakenly attributed to Stresemann by Deignan (1964) [Deignan, 1964 #1250].
25 Moyle et al. (2012) [Moyle, 2012 #14713] found that the clade including Pellorneum also held the type species of the genus Trichastoma and in a broad genus Pellorneum becomes a synonym. In addition two species from Malacocincla are included because that genus was found paraphyletic and its type species belongs in Turdinus which has priority, leaving Malacocincla in synonymy.
26 This treatment is provisional; broader taxon-sampling may permit some of the species to be united under the name Erythrocichla.
27 Species sequence follows Moyle et al. (2012) [Moyle, 2012 #14713].
28 Perhaps better united with mandelli see Ripley (1982) [Ripley, 1982 #3332].
29 Perhaps better united with mandelli see Ripley (1982) [Ripley, 1982 #3332].
30 Includes nyctilampis; see Mees (1986) [Mees, 1986 #2631].
31 Includes scortillum; see Collar & Robson (2007) [Collar, 2007 #12226].
32 Probably better placed in a monotypic genus, see Moyle et al. (2012) [Moyle, 2012 #14713].
33 Considered to form a superspecies with A. cinereiceps by Sibley & Monroe (1990) [Sibley, 1990 #3636].
34 Includes saturata see Mees (1986) [Mees, 1986 #2631] and sordida see Collar & Robson (2007) [Collar, 2007 #12226], who considered the name feriata applied to immature birds.
35 Correct original spelling. The spelling poliogenys in Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533] was an ISS.
36 Includes connectens; see Collar & Robson (2007) [Collar, 2007 #12226].
37 As the replacement name improbatum was proposed after 1961 it will be appropriate to restore it if what is treated here as T. malaccense were to be removed from Trichastoma. See Art. 59.4 of the Code (I.C.Z.N., 1999) [I.C.Z.N., 1999 #2059].

61 A DNA sample studied by Oliveros et al. (2012) [Oliveros, 2012 #14715] and said to be this forest floor species was founded embedded between two Rhinomyias flycatchers that were once associated subspecies, suggesting this sample must come from such a species.
62 To make sure of the relationships of L. woodi voucher specimens are available to permit sampling from a firmly identified museum specimen. We defer revising the placement of this specimen pending corroboration based on material of certain origin.
