Taxonomy and systematics
The yellowish bulbul was originally described in the genus Criniger and later placed in the genus Ixos before being re-classified to the genus Hypsipetes in 2010. Alternate names for the streak-breasted bulbul include Everett's bulbul, plain-throated bulbul, and yellow-washed bulbul. The scientific name commemorates British colonial administrator and zoological collector Alfred Hart Everett.
Three subspecies are currently recognized:
- H. e. everetti - (Tweeddale, 1877): Found in east-central and south-eastern Philippines
- Camiguin bulbul (H. e. catarmanensis) - Rand & Rabor, 1969: Classified by some authorities as a separate species. Found on Camiguin Sur (off northern Mindanao)
- Sulu bulbul (H. e. haynaldi) - (Blasius, W, 1890): Originally described as a separate species in the genus Criniger. Found in the Sulu Archipelago (south-western Philippines)
