  • Results contrary to those of Jønsson & Fjeldså (2006) were found by LeCroy & Barker (2006): based on cytochrome b sequences, they found Cettia to be monophyletic, with C. cetti as a basal member of the clade and stubtails as the sister-group.

  • Bush warblers are particularly newsworthy right now (to my mind at any rate) given that the just-published oscine supertree of Jønsson & Fjeldså (2006) found Cettia to be diphyletic, with C. cetti grouping with the tesias* and Urosphena (the stubtails) while the Japanese bush warbler C. diphone grouped with the Broad-billed flycatcher-warbler Tickellia hodgsoni and Orthotomus (the tailorbirds).

  • People here don’t ordinarily call it ‘Cetti’s bush warbler’, but they do elsewhere in the world (in India for example, where it’s but one of eight Cettia species).

  • Beehler (who I’d say is best known for his work on birds-of-paradise) published a brief paper on the bird in 1983 and thought it most likely that it was a species of Vitia (Beehler 1983), a genus regarded nowadays as synonymous with Cettia (Orenstein & Pratt 1983).

  • We have one member of the genus here in Europe: Cetti’s warbler Cettia cetti (though it’s not a European endemic, as it also occurs across Asia).
