Traditional (mainly following Dickinson [12]) and revised taxonomy proposed here (in alphabetical order based on traditional taxonomy). The proposed changes are in bold.

aTreated as subspecies of C. acanthizoides by Dickinson [12], but split by Alström et al. [18]. bNot included in the present study, but tentatively placed in Urosphena due to strong morphological and vocal similarity with U. squameiceps [8,13,16].
