(syn. Sylvia Ϯ Ruwenzori Hill-babbler S. atriceps) Gr. ψευδος pseudos false; genus Alcippe Blyth, 1844, fulvetta; "Turdinus atriceps ... We cannot allow this species to remain in the genus Turdinus ... I was at once struck by the similarity of its colour-pattern to the five African birds mentioned above, which have hitherto been placed in the genus Alcippe - i.e., stierlingi Reich., abyssinicus Rüpp., monachus Reichw., claudei Alex. (the last two subspecies of abyssinicus), and pyrrhopterus Reichw. & Neum. ... I propose for this compact little group the new generic name:- Pseudoalcippe, gen. nov., with type Turdinus atriceps Sharpe" (Bannerman 1923).
