Hippolais is a genus of tree warbler in the family Acrocephalidae. It is sometimes associated with the genus Iduna.[1] The genus name Hippolais is from Ancient Greek hupolais, as misspelt by Linnaeus. It referred to a small bird mentioned by Aristotle and others and may be onomatopoeic or derived from hupo,"under", and laas, "stone".[2]
