 Old World warblers
That confusion now extends to the entire concept of an "Old World Warbler" family called "Sylviidae."

It is not at all clear just how the old "Sylviidae" will be dismembered but with Sylvia moving to the Babblers, whatever is left of the basic Old World Warblers will not be called "Sylviidae." We don't know yet what it will be called.
The vast majority of this slimmed-down version of Old World Warblers are in two Dickinson (2003) subfamilies: Acrocephalinae (110 species) and Phylloscopinae (91 species).
