The Zosteropidae consist of the white-eyes (Zosterops) and the yuhinas (Yuhina), the latter formerly a genus with the Timaliidae assemblage.

The white-eyes are known in Malaysian ornithological usage as Burung Mata Putih 'white-eye(d) bird'. Indonesian uses Burung Kacamata 'spectacles-bird'. The other component of the family, the yuhinas, are not found in West Malaysia and Singapore.
