Long-tailed Bush-warbler (Bradypterus caudatus) - HBW 11, p. 608
French: Bouscarle à longue queue
Spanish: Zarzalero Colilargo
Other common names: . Long-tailed Ground-warbler
Taxonomy: Pseudotharrhaleus caudatus Ogilvie-Grant, 1895, Lepanto Mountains, north Luzon, Philippines.
Affinities uncertain; perhaps closest to B. accentor, which it resembles closely both in plumage and in song, but the two differ significantly in features of the tail and in foot size. Further, taped vocalizations of nominate race provoked little reaction when played to unicolor on Mindanao; investigation of the relationships between these taxa is required. Race malindangensis incorporated in unicolor by some authorities. Three subspecies recognized.
