- Larvivora komadori
Formerly placed in Erithacus but recent genetic studies have shown that east Asian Erithacus Robins are embedded in Luscinia, itself a paraphyletic grouping. Sangster, G. Alstrom, P. Forsmark, A. Olsson, U. (2010) Multi-locus phylogenetic analysis of Old World chats and flycatchers reveals extensive paraphyly at family, subfamily and genus level (Aves : Muscicapidae), Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution 57, 380-392 suggests splitting Luscinia s.l. to Luscinia s.s., Larvivora (which would contain the east Asian species), Calliope and Tarsiger.
Dense undergrowth in damp areas in forests. Nests in crevices or among roots of trees. Found at 100-600 meters above sea-level. Source: Birdlife International.
