Cyдиловская (1936) reported this species in Tien Shan, China. Although the landform and climatic conditions of Xinjiang are similar to those of eastern Kazakhstan, there have been no other reports for decades and as the original report lacked sufficient detail Moustached Warbler was not added to the Chinese checklist. This recent discovery of Moustached Warbler clears up some of the historical doubts and the species can now be safely added to the Chinese avifauna.
