The yellow-lored bristlebill or lesser bristlebill (Bleda notatus) is a species of songbird in the bulbul family, Pycnonotidae. It is found in central Africa.

Taxonomy and systematics[edit]

The yellow-lored bristlebill was originally described in the genus Trichophorus (a synonym for Criniger). Formerly, some authorities considered the yellow-lored bristlebill as conspecific with the green-tailed bristlebill.


Two subspecies are recognized:[2]

  • B. n. notatus - (Cassin, 1856): Found from Nigeria to Central African Republic, Congo and Bioko
  • Yellow-eyed bristlebill (B. n. ugandae) - Victor Van Someren, 1915: Considered by some authorities as a separate species. Found from central and northern Democratic Republic of the Congo to south-western Sudan and Uganda
