Ansorge's greenbul (Eurillas ansorgei), or Ansorge's bulbul is a species of the bulbul family of passerine birds. It is found in western and central Africa. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests.
Taxonomy and systematics
Ansorge's greenbul was originally described in the genus Andropadus and was re-classified to the genus Eurillas in 2010. Alternatively, some authorities classify Ansorge's greenbul in the genus Pycnonotus. Some authorities have considered Ansorge's greenbul as a subspecies of the little grey greenbul. The common name and scientific name commemorate the British explorer and collector William John Ansorge who collected natural history specimens in Africa.
