Bulbuls (Pycnonotidae)

Bornean Bulbul (Pycnonotus montis) - HBW 10, p. 175

French: Bulbul de Bornéo German: Borneo-Goldbrustbülbül Spanish: Bulbul de Borneo

Taxonomy: Rubigula montis Sharpe, 1879, Kinabalu, north Borneo.
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. flaviventris, P. dispar, P. gularis and P. melanicterus, and all five usually treated as conspecific. All may merit placement in a separate genus, Rubigula. Monotypic.

Distribution: Borneo, except S and coastal areas.
