Bathmocercus is a genus of bird in the Cisticolidae family. It contains the following species:

Black-capped Rufous Warbler (Bathmocercus cerviniventris)
Black-faced Rufous Warbler (Bathmocercus rufus)

Mrs Moreau's Warbler (Scepomycter winifredae) is sometimes placed in this genus though several marked morphological differences are used to justify its separation.
