Corsica and Sardinia

The Southern Romance languages make up a hypothetical sub-group of the family of Romance languages suggested by Ethnologue but with little support among linguists.

According to Ethnologue, the language group would include Sardinian, Corsican, the Gallurese dialect, and the dialects of Sassarese. In mainstream linguistics, Corsican is instead considered closest to the Tuscan dialect of Italian and closer to standard Italian than many other Italian dialects, while Sardinian is considered a different language of its own.
