Taxonomy and systematics

The genus Pycnonotus was introduced by the German zoologist Friedrich Boie in 1826 with the Cape bulbul as the type species.[1] The name of the genus combines the Ancient Greek words puknos "thick" or "compact" and -n?tos "-backed".[2]

The genus contains the following 49 species:[3]
