Published in HBW Volume 12 on page 88.
Original HBW caption:
The Plain Laughingthrush inhabits scrub, thickets, and moor-like terrain at medium altitudes of 1600–3300 m in Asian mountains. As its name suggests, it is unremittingly non-descript. In this regard it is similar to its only congener in the genus Pterorhinus, the White-browed Laughingthrush (P. sannio), which also has a global range centred on China. These two forms are united by their distinctive vocalizations and dull plumage, but differ in bill morphology.
