The Uluguru greenbul (Arizelocichla neumanni) is a species of the bulbul family of passerine birds. [2] It is found in eastern Tanzania.

Taxonomy and systematics

The Uluguru greenbul was originally described in the genus Arizelocichla in 1922. [3]

It was then classified to the genus Andropadus before being re-classified back to the genus Arizelocichla in 2010. [4] It was considered conspecific with the mountain greenbul until split to form a separate species in 2009. [5] Some authorities have considered the Uluguru greenbul to be a subspecies of the western greenbul, mountain greenbul or black-browed greenbul. [6] Alternate names for the Uluguru greenbul include the Mulanji mountain greenbul and Uluguru mountain greenbul.
