The generic allocation of the Japanese Marsh Warbler Megalurus pryeri is discussed. The genus Megalurus is probably a polyphyletic group. The type species of the genus is M. palustris, which is a different bird from M. pryeri in many respects. We suggest that pryeri be placed in the genus Locustella until its relationships with other sylviine species are better known.
