White-browed Bulbul (Pycnonotus luteolus) - HBW 10, p. 191
French: Bulbul à sourcils blancs
Spanish: Bulbul Cejiblanco
Taxonomy: Haematornis luteolus Lesson, 1841, Mumbai, India.
Genus as currently constituted probably polyphyletic; in-depth analysis of morphology, voice, behaviour and genetics required to redefine its limits. Present species forms a superspecies with P. goiavier; affinities to other members of genus remain to be clarified. Proposed race flavirictus (Tamil Nadu, in S India) considered indistinguishable from nominate. Two subspecies recognized.
Subspecies and Distribution:
- luteolus (Lesson, 1841) - peninsular India (Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and S West Bengal S to Tamil Nadu); possibly also in Dry Zone of Sri Lanka.
- insulae Whistler & Kinnear, 1932 - Sri Lanka (with possible exception of Dry Zone).
- Least Concern Enlarge map
