    Zosteropidae

    The type species of Dasycrotapha, speciosa, is lacking on this study. A previous study shows that D. plateni and pygmaea were close to Sterrhoptilus rather than Dasycrotapha speciosa (but I don't know the support). Anyway, these three species are morphologically very different; I do not...

    I want it

    Bird Nomenclature

    Who owns it? I would like to see how the bird list is presented, see how are the layout and formatting of the bird list inside.

    Hi ! For me it's a black-chinned Hummingbird (Archilochus alexandri)

    Tyrannides

    Very little renaming for me but if I had to make proposals for future new genera, it would be these: Phyllomyias griseocapilla = "Phyllotriccus" Myrmotherula behni, schisticolor, minor and related species = "Myrmozetetes" Drymophila squamata = Toenidiura if squamata is chosen to be its type...

    Tyrannides

    The only name I use among these new genera is Campina for inornata and another that I forgot

    Tyrannides

    Et encore ! Boyd may not know the potential new genera mentioned in an old thread (Campina, Physatriccus etc.)

    Passeriformes

    Gymnopithys, Oneillornis and Rhegmatorhina form a very young lineage. I'm not against the idea of bringing them together in 1 genus, Gymnopithys

    Passeriformes

    The only thing an actual taxonomist needs to do is to fix squamata as the type species of Toenidiura in a future revision. I think at least

    Gruiformes and Charadriiformes

    It could well be that their position in the tree would be due to errors from what I understand

    Gruiformes and Charadriiformes

    Or almost 30 mya for the first lineage of Burhinidae, it's huge !!

    Passeriformes

    I wonder if Gray in his Cat Genera Subgenera wouldn't give Taenidiura as a synonym for Formicivora?

    Passeriformes

    I read that in James' key 🤷 Its true that he specifies that the species is not identifiable 🙄 And about Taenidiura ?

    Passeriformes

    Shouldn't we be using Myrmophila Cabanis & Heine, 1860 (type: urosticta) instead of Myrmopagis Ridgway, 1909 (type: axillaris)?

    Passeriformes

    It does not match with the youth of most lineages, nor with the fact that he considers Neorhopias as distinct from Formicivora (which has less than 10 mya) while his large Myrmopagis greatly exceeds 10 mya. He should have kept the old conception: Myrmopagis, Poliolaema (assimilis and...
