Ixos malaccensis (Streaked Bulbul)

Wikipedia Abstract

The streaked bulbul (Ixos malaccensis) is a songbird species in the bulbul family (Pycnonotidae). Depending on whether it is or isn't a particularly close relative of the type species of the genus Ixos, the Sunda bulbul or green-winged bulbul (Ixos virescens), it might belong in a new genus. What is known is that some Ixos species are close to Hypsipetes (which might warrant merging into Ixos), while others – including the streaked bulbul – are closer to Hemixos. But the affiliations of I. virescens remain to be restudied, and it is not clear to which group it belongs.
