Other common names: Thick-billed Reed-warbler
Taxonomy: Muscicapa Aëdon Pallas, 1776, south-eastern Transbaikalia, eastern Siberia, Russia.
Sometimes placed in a separate genus, Phragmaticola; when so treated, earlier name rufescens (which preoccupied in present genus) can be used for E race stegmanni. Relationships uncertain; further research needed. Races intergrade. Two subspecies recognized.
