We present molecular evidence that Neumann's Warbler Hemitesia neumanni is deeply nested within the Cettiidae. The species' distribution in the Albertine Rift of East Africa is intriguing, as the family Cettiidae is principally an Asian radiation. This disjunct distribution could be a result of colonization of Africa by long-distance dispersal, or the Cettiidae may at some point in the past have had a much larger geographical distribution that also covered parts of Africa.
