 Eudromias vs. Charadrius
Some authorities (Sibley & Monroe, 1996) place Eurasian Dotterel (morinellus) in the monotypic genus Eudromias. However, Clements (2007) and Howard & Moore (2003) place it within Charadrius and the Opus follows in this consensus.
Tundra and mountain areas; winters in semi desert.
