Streaked bulbul

Binomial name: Ixos malaccensis, Edward Blyth, 1845

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 presently 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.

It is found in Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, Burma, Singapore, and Thailand. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests. It is becoming rare due to habitat loss.
