Dohrn's thrush-babbler (Horizorhinus dohrni), also known as Principe flycatcher-babbler and Dohrn's warbler, is a species of passerine bird in the family Sylviidae that is endemic to the island of Príncipe which lies off the west coast of Africa in the Gulf of Guinea.

The species is monotypic within the genus Horizorhinus.[2] Some taxonomists now place Dohrn's thrush-babbler in the genus Sylvia[3] based on the results of molecular phylogenetic studies.[4][5]
