Pseudominla cinerea

The yellow-throated fulvetta (Alcippe cinerea) is a bird species of the family Pellorneidae. Its common name is misleading, because it is not a close relative of the "typical" fulvettas, which are now in the genus Fulvetta and are actually Sylviidae.

It is found in Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India, Laos, Myanmar, Nepal, and Vietnam.

Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist montane forests.
