The yellow-throated greenbul (Arizelocichla chlorigula) is a species of the bulbul family of passerine birds. It is an African species found in east-central and southern Tanzania.[2]

Taxonomy and systematics[edit]

The yellow-throated greenbul was originally described in the genus Xenocichla (a synonym for Bleda) and then classified in Andropadus. It was re-classified to the new genus Arizelocichla in 2010.[3] Alternatively, some authorities classify the yellow-throated greenbul in the genus Pycnonotus. Some authorities have considered the yellow-throated greenbul to be a subspecies of the mountain greenbul. Alternate names for the yellow-throated greenbul include the green-throated greenbul, southern mountain greenbul and yellow-throated mountain greenbul.[4] The name 'yellow-throated greenbul' is also used as an alternate name for the yellow-throated leaflove and Falkenstein's greenbul, while the alternate name 'green-throated greenbul' is also used by the olive-headed greenbul.[5][6] Some authorities consider the yellow-throated greenbul to be synonymous with the yellow-throated leaflove.[7]
