Grey-crowned Tetraka (Xanthomixis cinereiceps) - HBW 10, p. 250
French: Bulbul à tête grise
Spanish: Bulbul Coronigrís
Other common names: Grey-crowned Greenbul
Taxonomy: Oxylabes cinereiceps Sharpe, 1881, Fianarantsoa, Madagascar.
Relationships of genus with rest of family uncertain. Genus previously merged with Bernieria, but recent mitochondrial DNA sequence data indicate that the five species then involved are not a monophyletic group. Hence, this species and its relatives better placed in present genus. Recent molecular data indicate that present species is sister of X. apperti. Monotypic.
Distribution: NW & E Madagascar (Manongarivo and Tsaratanana, and from Marojejy S to Andohohela).
