Seicercus emeiensiss

Martens's warbler (Phylloscopus omeiensis), also known as Omei warbler or Emei Shan warbler, is a species of Old World warbler in the family Phylloscopidae (or Sylviidae). It was first described in 1999.[2] It is found in China and Myanmar. Its natural habitats are temperate forests and subtropical or tropical moist montane forests.

Martens's warbler was initially placed in the genus Seicercus. A molecular phylogenetic study published in 2018 found that neither Phylloscopus nor Seicercus were monophyletic.[3] In the subsequent reorganization the two genera were merged into Phylloscopus which has priority under the rules of the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature.[4]
