The Acrocephalidae are a result of the break-up of the Sylviidae assemblage (Old World warblers). Other families arising from this break-up include the Locustellidae, Phylloscipidae, and Scotocercidae, as well as part of the Sylviidae.

There are only three species in West Malaysia/Singapore, spread across two genera. Most sources call all three Burung Cekup Paya 'marsh warbler (bird)'.

Indonesian naming

The Indonesian name for Acrocephalus is Burung Kerakbasi.
