Abstract [en]

This paper is the tenth report of the Taxonomic Sub-Committee of the BOU Records Committee. Species-level decisions are based on criteria outlined by Helbig et al. (2002). The ninth report of the Sub-Committee was published by Sangster et al. (2013). Recommendations in this report fall into five categories: (i) recognition of higher taxa not recognised by Voous (Paroidea), (ii) changes in generic allocation (Melanocorypha leucoptera, Calandrella rufescens), (iii) changes in the taxonomic sequence of species (Alaudidae, Prunella), (iv) changes in species limits (Struthio camelus, Thalassarche cauta, Poecile lugubris, Phylloscopus tenellipes, Sylvia cantillans, Oenanthe lugens, Passer italiae), and (v) changes in nomenclature (Sylvia cantillans moltonii).
