Fulvetta is a songbird genus. Originally proposed in 1877, it was recently reestablished for the typical fulvettas, which were long included with their presumed relatives in the Timaliidae (Old World babbler) genus Alcippe. But they are actually quite closely related to the typical warblers and therefore a member of the family Sylviidae.
It contains the following species:
- Spectacled fulvetta, Fulvetta ruficapilla
- Indochinese fulvetta, Fulvetta danisi
- Chinese fulvetta, Fulvetta striaticollis
- White-browed fulvetta, Fulvetta vinipectus
- Grey-hooded fulvetta, Fulvetta cinereiceps
- Taiwan fulvetta, Fulvetta formosana
- Manipur fulvetta, Fulvetta manipurensis
- Brown-throated fulvetta, Fulvetta ludlowi
