The liocichlas are a group of birds in the genus of the same name, Liocichla, from the Leiothrichidae family. They are found in Asia from India to China. They are Old World babblers proper and belong to a clade also containing at least the Leiothrix, the barwings, the minlas and the sibias. Among these, they are an early offshoot, or basal lineage.[1]

The Bugun Liocichla was scientifically described in 2006, having been recorded only once before, in 1995.
