(syn. Bradypterus Ϯ Friendly Bush Warbler B. accentor) Gr. ανηρ anēr, ανδρος andros man; φιλος philos lover; “ANDROPHILUS*, gen. n. Genus simile generi "Elaphrornis" dicto, sed plumulis nuchalibus absentibus distinguendum. The type is ANDROPHILUS ACCENTOR, sp. n. ... "A peculiar little bird, with a throat like an Alpine Accentor. Met with at 7000 feet, never met with above or below." I have chosen the generic name from the extraordinary tameness of this bird and the Corythocichla, both of which, Mr. Whitehead says, were difficult to shoot from their persistence in closely following the observer. ... *ανηρ, homo; φιλεω, amo.” (Sharpe 1888).
