Species of Thailand
Binomial name: Erithacus akahige, Coenraad Jacob Temminck, 1835
The Japanese robin (Erithacus akahige, formerly Luscinia akahige) or komadori is a songbird. Recent research suggests that the East Asian robins belong in a new genus uniting them with some East Asian Luscinia members such as the Siberian blue robin.
The name "Japanese robin" is also sometimes used for the red-billed leiothrix (Leiothrix lutea). The specific name akahige is, somewhat confusingly, the common name of its relative Erithacus komadori in Japanese.
