Genus of passerine birds in the monotypic family Alcippeidae.

The Fulvetta fulvettas are now placed in family Paradoxornithidae, the bush blackcap in the genus Sylvia in the family Sylviidae, and, in the most recent revision, a group of seven species were transferred to the new genus Schoeniparus in family Pellorneidae.

Chrysomma is quite closely related to the parrotbills, and is therefore a member of the family Paradoxornithidae.

Fulvetta
