The white-throated greenbul (Phyllastrephus albigularis), or white-throated bulbul, is a species of songbird in the bulbul family, Pycnonotidae. It is found in many parts of central and western Africa. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and subtropical or tropical moist montane forests.
Taxonomy and systematics
The white-throated greenbul was originally described in the genus Xenocichla (a synonym for Bleda). The alternate name, 'white-throated bulbul', should not be confused with the species of the same name, Alophoixus flaveolus.
