Burung Rimba Kepala Merah

- Malayan Laughingthrush
- Trochalopteron peninsulae


It was suggested that the species was endemic to mountains of Malay Peninsular and it was the split off from closely related forms from the Himalayas and South China through Thailand and Indochina (several were formerly grouped together under the name Chesnut-Crowned Laughingthrush (Garrulax erythrocephalus), but they have know been split into a variety of names put it in a new genus).  So far, the only true endemic species to Malay Peninsular is unfortunately one and only one - Malayan laughing thrush! 
 
Malay Peninsular : Refer to whole Peninsular including south Thailand and south Tenessarim (Myammar) and technically including Singapore, is a biogeographical range, the only part of the Sunda shelf that is now connected to mainland Asia.
