Russet bush warbler

Locustella mandelli, William Edwin Brooks, 1875

(In Thai: นกกระจ้อยเขาสูง)

The russet bush warbler (Locustella mandelli) is a songbird species. Formerly placed in the "Old World warbler" assemblage, it is now placed in the newly recognized family Locustellidae. B. mandelli was until recently considered a subspecies of B. seebohmi, and the name "russet bush warbler" was applied to the entire species complex. After this was split up, Benguet bush warbler was proposed as a new name for B. seebohmi proper. The species is found in southeast Asia.

The scientific name commemorates the Italian naturalist Louis Mandelli.
