Sylviidae - Sylviid-warblers+ Family currently contains the following categories... Blackcaps Sylviid-warblers Sylviid-warblers+ Warbler Curruca Warbler Sylvia Warbler5 Whitethroats Due to the complexities caused by the ambiguous meaning of the term warbler, which at the moment includes 5 separate scientific families, I give below a further clarification of some terms as used on this site, other sites may use different terminology. Sylviid-warblers = all warblers of the category - Warbler Sylvia Sylviid-warblers+ = Sylviid-warblers plus all other species in the Family Sylviidae = all Warbler5 = Sylviidae This is in keeping with the usual way Families are headlined in English, eg for the present Family usually written... Sylviidae - Sylviid-warblers and allies - and which on this site is written as... Sylviidae - Sylviid-warblers+ which I think is a very convenient way to indicate a family group in English by adding a + to the usual characteristic sub-family member, and is worthy of widespread use because of its simplicity and clarity, to make clear the reference to both the sub-family and the full scientific family in English rather than Latin. The other categories are self explanatory.
