The Flame-templed babbler (Dasycrotapha speciosa) is a species of white-eye endemic to the Philippines. It had been placed in the family Timaliidae, but it is a close relative of the white-eyes however, and many taxonomists now place it in the family Zosteropidae. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests. It is threatened by habitat loss.
