The dusky thrush is a member of the thrush family which breeds eastwards from central Siberia. It is closely related to the more southerly breeding Naumann's thrush ''T. naumanni''; the two have often been regarded as conspecific. The scientific name comes from Latin ''Turdus'', "thrush" and Ancient Greek ''eunomos'', "orderly".
