The evidence for separating <em><span style='font-family:Arial; mso-bidi-font-family:"Times New Roman"'>Leiothlypis</span></em> from <i style='mso-bidi-font-style:normal'>Vermivora</i> is sound, but there is a pure judgment call to be made relating to the name for the new group. One reasonable possibility is to recognize <em><span style='font-family:Arial;mso-bidi-font-family: "Times New Roman"'>Leiothlypis</span></em>, as proposed here. There is good evidence that these species form a monophyletic group. The alternative possibility is to recognize a slightly more inclusive monophyletic group comprised of these  <em><span style='font-family:Arial;mso-bidi-font-family:"Times New Roman"'>Leiothlypis</span></em> taxa plus their sister lineage, which comprises the taxa we currently know as <em><span style='font-family:Arial;mso-bidi-font-family:"Times New Roman"'>Parula superciliosa </span></em>(Crescent-chested Warbler) and <em><span style='font-family:Arial;mso-bidi-font-family:"Times New Roman"'>P. gutturalis</span></em> (Flame-throated W.); this is also a well supported clade.
