African Barbets (Boetticher, 1951)
I'm trying to identify the type species for the following generic names by Boetticher, Zool. Anz. 1951. My usual resources are failing me!
Is anyone able to state/confirm types for the following and, if possible, direct me to a suitable (online) resource.
Leucolybius (= Lybius leucocephalus?)
Murututtu (= Trachyphonus erythrocephalus?)
Phalacrobucco (= Gymnobucco sladeni?)
Thanks in advance!

von Boetticher named not less than 5 new subgenera in his 1951 paper:
Eolybius, type spec.: Pogonias (Laimodon) melanopterus Peters
Leucolybius, type spec.: Laimodon leucocephalus Defilippi
Pogonodon, type spec.: Pogonias undatus Rüppell
Murututtu, type spec.: Bucco margaritatus Cretzschmar
Phalacrobucco,type spec.: Gymnobucco peli Hartlaub
Hope this is of some help.
