Wikipedia Abstract

Pseudalethe is a genus of small, mainly insectivorous birds in the Old World flycatcher family Muscicapidae that are native to sub-Saharan Africa. The genus was introduced by the South African ornithologist Pamela Beresford in 2003. Species in the genus were previously assigned to the genus Alethe which was included in the thrush family Turdidae. In 2010 two separate molecular phylogenetic studies found that Alethe was polyphyletic and that the genus was more closely related to the Old World flycatcher family Muscicapidae. The genus contains four species:
