SPECIES INFO

The Naung Mung Scimitar-babbler (Jabouilleia naungmungensis) is a member of the Old World babbler family, Timaliidae, described as new to science in 2005. The only other member of the genus Jabouilleia is the Short-tailed Scimitar-babbler.

Naung Mung Scimitar-babbler is found in temperate rainforest on steep, sub-Himalayan hillsides. It was discovered in February 2004 in the far north of Burma, and is named after the village of Naung Mung, the closest settlement to its discovery site.

It is believed to be fairly common within its range. Due to its recent description, its conservation status has not been formally evaluated, however.
