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.

张星敏: 请老师们帮助辨识是否是黄腰柳萦。难道在乌市南山也有它的存在和踪迹?拍摄时以为是暗绿柳莺。事后在电脑修图时发现,但又不能确定。头部顶冠纹非树枝影子映衬所致。
