Pycnonotus is a paraphyletic genus of songbird in the bulbul family (Pycnonotidae).

Taxonomy and systematics[edit]

The genus Pycnonotus was introduced by the German zoologist Friedrich Boie in 1826 with the Cape bulbul as the type species.[1] The name of the genus combines the Ancient Greek words puknos "thick" or "compact" and -nōtos "-backed".[2]

The genus contains the following 49 species:[3]

Former species[edit]

Formerly, some authorities also considered the following species (or subspecies) as species within the genus Pycnonotus:
