The yellow-throated fulvetta (Alcippe cinerea) is a species of bird in the family Pellorneidae. Its common name is misleading, because it is not a close relative of the "typical" fulvettas, which are now in the family Sylviidae.

It is found in south-eastern Asia from the Himalayas to north-central Vietnam. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist montane forests.
