Kuan-t’un, north-west Fujian, south-east China.
Has sometimes been treated as conspecific with P. cantator, and this is a serious option, with the inclusion of P. calciatilis; but differs from P. calciatilis in characters given under that species. Differs from P. cantator in its yellow vs white belly (3); bolder or blacker sides of crown, contrasting with bright yellow supercilium (1); longer wing (effect size for males on published evidence#R 1.96, score 1); and more stereotyped (1) and slightly lower-pitched song (1). P. goodsoni (hitherto considered conspecific with P. reguloides) was in the past treated as a race of present species. Monotypic.
