Parulidae revision

Has this been discussed here yet?

http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.ympev.2010.07.018

A comprehensive multilocus phylogeny for the wood-warblers and a revised classification of the Parulidae (Aves) by Lovett et al.

it's unfortunate that Setophaga has priority over the Dendroica; I rather like the sound of Dendroica over Setophaga.

What happened to Yellow-breasted Chat? No longer considered a parulid under the new dispensation?

Going by J. Boyd's taxonomy in flux site (http://jboyd.net/Taxo/List30.html), the Yellow-breasted Chat is in a different subfamily than almost all the other wood warblers, so it may not have been considered for the analysis. Two West Indian wood warblers in the genus Teretristis are in yet another subfamily, and I don't see them discussed in the analysis here either: http://slybird.blogspot.com/2010/08/...-taxonomy.html

Lovette et al. 2010 mention that it is not a member of parulidae at all, along with some of the West Indian taxa

Back at the Laramie AOU meeting, the nine-primaried oscine phylogeny symposium stated it was sister to Icteridae (and recommended merging it with that family). Not sure where it goes now.

Icteria is sister to the Icteridae? Wouldn't it be really confusing if it merited a subfamily (Icteriinae which would then imply an Icterinae)?
