Alcippe is a genus of birds in the Leiothrichidae family; however, it was once a genus in the Timaliidae (typical babbler) family. It used to be a catchall for the "fulvettas", but has been recently split into 5 independent genera: Alcippe, Schoeniparus, Fulvetta, Pseudominla and Lioparus.

It contains the following species:
