    Lowland antpittas

    Could we not write : Prevot & Des Murs in Lafresnaye, 1842 ?

    Meliphagidae

    Now, no doubt that Pycnopygius cinereus and ixoides need a new genus, maybe "Pinaromyza"

    Lowland antpittas

    Indeed, that doesn't help me much. I still use Lafresnaye, 1842, by default

    Accipitridae

    Nice ^^

    Lowland antpittas

    What is the correct authority of Grallaria squamigera ? Some sources give 2 authorities: Lafresnaye or Prevot et Des Murs

    AOU-NACC Proposals 2022

    Sounds like a legit English name

    Icteridae

    Me, but it's safe anyway

    Corvoidea

    Chlorochroa Stål, 1872 is protected, in theory. But, in my knowledge, Chlorochroa Sclater, 1862, was never published after 1899.

    Corvoidea

    Nomen nudum and , probably, nomen oblitum. To o-bli-viooooon !

    Identity of Dampier's Petrel

    I don't think we can consider them as binomial names

    Identity of Dampier's Petrel

    You know the name he used ?

    Identity of Dampier's Petrel

    There is also a fourth author in Procellaria pelagica, first listed "Cluf. Exot. 368". Who is he ?

    Identity of Dampier's Petrel

    Thanks. I'll go take a look. I see it is mentioned for the three species described by Linnaeus. Would Edwards have described these three species? I guess yes

    Identity of Dampier's Petrel

    Who is this "Edw." mentioned by Linnaeus? Is it possible that the name Petrel was before a wastebin name, and then used in a naturalistic context to describe this species, i.e. Hydrobates pelagicus ?
