1 Contrary to Alström et al. (2013) [Alström, 2013 #14634] this family name was not first proposed in 2006, but was proposed by Jerdon in 1863; see Bock (1994) [Bock, 1994 #398] and Art. 36 of the Code (I.C.Z.N., 1999) [I.C.Z.N., 1999 #2059].
2 Genus sequence and within this species sequence broadly follows Olsson et al. (2005) [Olsson, 2005 #2864], Johansson et al. (2007) [Johansson, 2007 #9906] and Päckert et al. (2009, 2012) [Päckert, 2009 #11876], [Päckert, 2012 #13659]. Our resurrection of Rhadina and Abrornis derives from the deep branches in their findings.
3 Date questionable; it was cited from 1828 by Watson (1986) [Watson, 1986 #4449] and was dated 1827 by Wood (1931) [Wood, 1931 #15582], but the title page of vol. 1, part 2, is dated 1828.
4 For treatment as a separate species from R. bonelli see Helbig et al. (1995) [Helbig, 1995 #1933] and Sangster et al. (2002) [Sangster, 2002 #3474].
5 This dates from January 1847, see Dickinson & Walters (2006) [Dickinson, 2006 #9469] and antedates the name Reguloides Blyth, 1847 which dates from about May.
6 Includes Phylloscopus sichuanensis Alström, Olsson & Colston, 1992 [Alström, 1992 #57]; see Martens (2000) [Martens, 2000 #2507].
7 For treatment as a separate species from A. inornata see Irwin et al. (2001) [Irwin, 2001 #2088] and Sangster et al. (2002) [Sangster, 2002 #3474].
8 For treatment as a separate species from A. proregulus see Alström & Olsson (1990) [Alström, 1990 #54].
9 For correct date see Dickinson & Walters (2006) [Dickinson, 2006 #9469].
10 Previously treated as a synonym of A. [proregulus] chloronotus, as in Watson et al. (1986) [Watson, 1986 #4449] and Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533]; but see Martens et al. (2004) [Martens, 2004 #2513].
11 Previously treated as a synonym of A. [proregulus] proregulus, as in Watson et al. (1986) [Watson, 1986 #4449]; but see Alström et al. (1997) [Alström, 1997 #62] and Martens et al. (2004) [Martens, 2004 #2513].
12 Considered to form a superspecies with A. chloronotus, A. kansuensis and A. forresti; see Martens et al. (2004) [Martens, 2004 #2513].
13 Transfer of multiple species to the genus Seicercus is required by the major clades to be found in the study by Olsson et al. (2005) [Olsson, 2005 #2864] and the corroborating evidence in Päckert et al. (2012) [Päckert, 2012 #13659].
14 Red'kin & Malykh (2011) [Red'kin, 2011 #12707] proposed a new subspecies sakhalinensis which requires corroboration, that population is tentatively retained herein. These authors also recognised two other taxa with names in synonymy.
15 For correct date of publication see Quaisser & Eck (2006) [Quaisser, 2006 #7425].
16 For transfer to this species from P. fuligiventer see Rasmussen & Anderton (2005) [Rasmussen, 2005 #4749]. But see Martens (2010) [Martens, 2010 #12717].
17 When this included tibetanus this was sometimes treated as conspecific with P. fuscatus; e.g. by Cheng (1987) [Cheng Tso-hsin, 1987 #739].
18 For transfer from P. fuscatus to this species see Martens et al. (2008) [Martens, 2008 #11734].
19 For correct date of publication see Quaisser & Eck (2006) [Quaisser, 2006 #7425].
20 For treatment as a species separate from P. affinis see Alström & Olsson (1992) [Alström, 1992 #58].
21 Birds named P. s. arcanus Ripley, 1950 have been re-identified as Cettia flavolivacea; see Alström et al. (1993) [Alström, 1993 #11288].
22 For reasons to treat this and P. canariensis as separate species from P. collybita see Helbig et al. (1996) [Helbig, 1996 #1934]; for the use of the name ibericus in place of brehmii see Svensson (2001) [Svensson, 2001 #3788].
23 Includes biscayensis Salomon, Voisin & Bried [Salomon, 2003 #3444], see Elias (2004) [Elias, 2004 #1497].
24 Implicitly includes sardus Trischitta, 1939 [Trischitta, 1939 #3879]; see Vaurie (1959) [Vaurie, 1959 #3961].
25 For recognition see Stepanyan (1990) [Stepanyan, 1990 #3721], who also recognised fulvescens (here a synonym of tristis). See also Marova-Kleinbub & Leonovitch (1998) [Marova-Kleinbub, 1998 #2498].
26 This may deserve treatment at species rank see Martens & Eck (1995) [Martens, 1995 #2504] and Dean & Svensson (2005) [Dean, 2005 #9816] and was so treated by Rasmussen & Anderton (2005) [Rasmussen, 2005 #4749].
27 For treatment as a species separate from P. sindianus; see Stepanyan (1990) [Stepanyan, 1990 #3721].
28 For correct date see Pittie (2006) [Pittie, 2006 #9574].
29 Watson (1986) [Watson, 1986 #4449] cited this from The Ibis, 1872, but the name and description appeared a year earlier in the Proceedings of the Asiatic Society of Bengal; see link after range statement.
30 Treated as monotypic by Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533] following the recognition of subspecies subaffinis as a distinct species.
31 For correction of authorship see Dickinson (2004) [Dickinson, 2004 #1388].
32 For the revision of the broad species used by Watson et al. (1986) [Watson, 1986 #4449] into several species see Alström & Olsson (1999) [Alström, 1999 #64] and Martens et al. (1999) [Martens, 1999 #2506].
33 Includes distincta see Martens et al. (1999) [Martens, 1999 #2506] due to the neotypification of S. tephrocephalus by Alström & Olsson (1999) [Alström, 1999 #64].
34 Dated 1882 by Watson et al. (1986) [Watson, 1986 #4449] but see Anon. (1947) [Anon., 1947 #14610].
35 For recognition see Pearson (1997) [Pearson, 1997 #2990].
36 Correct original spelling. Spelling mackensianus in Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533] was an ISS.
37 Correct original spelling. Spelling dorcadichrous in Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533] was an ISS.
38 Correct original spelling. Spelling camerunensus in Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533] was an ISS.
39 Considered by Clement (2006) [Clement, 2006 #15586] to form a superspecies with S. laurae and S. ruficapilla.
40 Includes ochraceiceps see Pearson (1997) [Pearson, 1997 #2990].
41 In a broad genus Seicercus which subsumes species previously placed in Phylloscopus this name has priority over Acanthopneuste davisoni Oates, 1889 if that is one of the species subsumed.
42 In a broad genus Seicercus which subsumes species previously placed in Phylloscopus this name has priority over Acanthopneuste floris Hartert, 1898 if Phylloscopus presbytes is one of the species subsumed.
43 May belong in S. trochiloides; see Martens (2010) [Martens, 2010 #12717].
44 As noted by Alström (2013) [Alström, 2013 #14634] the interrelationships of S. nitidus, S. trochiloides and S. plumbeitarsus are unresolved. This appears to be due to different signals from morphology and molecules.
45 Includes hylebata, transbaicalica and talovka see Stepanyan (1990) [Stepanyan, 1990 #3721]. But see Martens (2010) [Martens, 2010 #12717].
46 Previously treated as a synonym of S. borealis xanthodryas, as in Watson et al. (1986) [Watson, 1986 #4449] and Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533]; but see Saitoh et al. (2008, 2010) [Saitoh, 2008 #12076], [Saitoh, 2010 #12565].
47 Winter range tentative especially because this taxon was long considered a synonym of S. [borealis] xanthodryas.
48 Previously treated as a subspecies of S. borealis, as in Watson et al. (1986) [Watson, 1986 #4449] and Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533]; but see Saitoh et al. (2006, 2008, 2010) [Saitoh, 2006 #15581], [Saitoh, 2008 #12076], [Saitoh, 2010 #12565].
49 Cover date January 2010; but mailed 14 December 2009, and 2009 is recommended as a publication date see Ibis vol. 152, p. 414.
50 Previously treated as a subspecies of S. reguloides, as in Watson et al. (1986) [Watson, 1986 #4449] and Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533]; but see Olsson et al. (2005) [Olsson, 2005 #2864] and Päckert et al. (2009) [Päckert, 2009 #11876].
51 Correct original spelling. Spelling kashmirensis in Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533] was an ISS.
52 Previously treated as a subspecies of S. ricketti, as in Watson et al. (1986) [Watson, 1986 #4449] and Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533]; but see Olsson et al. (2005) [Olsson, 2005 #2864] and Päckert et al. (2009) [Päckert, 2009 #11876].
53 For treatment here see Olsson et al. (2005) [Olsson, 2005 #2864], Päckert et al. (2009) [Päckert, 2009 #11876] and Martens et al. [Martens, 2010 #12717].
54 For recognition see Dickinson et al. (1991) [Dickinson, 1991 #1361].
55 Correct original spelling. Spelling diutae in Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533] was an ISS.
56 Watson et al. (1986) [Watson, 1986 #4449] and Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533] mistakenly used the name S. poliocephalus; the senior name used here has two years priority.
57 The subspecies poliocephalus has been screened; it appears as S. poliogenys in Fig. 6 in Alström et al. (2013) [Alström, 2013 #14634].
58 The name Seicercus presbytes floresianus is a nomen novum for Acanthopneuste floris Hartert, 1898 which, in Seicercus, is preoccupied by Cryptolopha montis floris Hartert, 1897.
59 Previously treated as a subspecies of P. davisoni, as in Watson et al. (1986) [Watson, 1986 #4449] and Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533]; but see Olsson et al. (2005) [Olsson, 2005 #2864] and Päckert et al. (2009) [Päckert, 2009 #11876].
60 This name dates from 3 January 1922, klossi from 3 October, and disturbans from 27 October 1922.
61 For treatment as sister to S. davisoni see Olsson et al. (2005) [Olsson, 2005 #2864] and Martens et al. (2008) [Martens, 2008 #11734].
62 For correct date see Dickinson & Walters (2006) [Dickinson, 2006 #9469].
63 The name Seicercus klossi muleyitensis is a nomen novum for Acanthopneuste davisoni Oates, 1889 which, in Seicercus, is preoccupied by Cryptolopha davisoni Sharpe, 1888. With the placement of Acanthopneuste davisoni in Seicercus precedence passes to Cryptolopha davisoni Sharpe, 1888.
