  1. Traditional (mainly following Dickinson [12]) and revised taxonomy proposed here (in alphabetical order based on traditional taxonomy). The proposed changes are in bold.
  2. aTreated as subspecies of C. acanthizoides by Dickinson [12], but split by Alström et al. [18]. bNot included in the present study, but tentatively placed in Urosphena due to strong morphological and vocal similarity with U. squameiceps [8, 13, 16].
