Taxonomy and systematics
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:
- 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
- Sinclair, Ian & Ryan, Peter (2003) Birds of Africa south of the Sahara, Struik, Cape Town.
