(syn. Sericornis Ϯ Yellow-throated Scrubwren S. citreogularis) Gr. νεος neos new; genus Sericornis Gould, 1838, scrubwren; "Genus SERICORNIS. ... There seems to be no valid reason for the retention of the "genera" Acanthornis and Oreoscopus, which I have eliminated, as well as Pyrrholaemus. To those who would retain the above as distinct from Sericornis I would recommend the use of Neosericornis (nov.) for Muscicapa lathami Stephens and Tasmanornis (nov.) for Sericornis humilis Gould, as these species differ more from the type of Sericornis, S. frontalis Vigors and Horsfield, than do the types of Acanthornis or Pyrrholaemus" (Mathews 1912).
