Chrysomma poecilotis

The rufous-tailed babbler (Moupinia poecilotis) is a bird species in the family Sylviidae. It was formerly included with the Old World babblers (Timaliidae) in the genus Chrysomma, but is actually very closely related to the typical warblers (Sylvia). It is endemic to central China.

The genus Moupinia was introduced by the French ornithologists Armand David and Émile Oustalet in 1877.[2]
