    There is now enough evidence to move T. troglodytes into the genus Nannus. Are the lists expected to make this transfer soon?

    Maybe I might be wrong, but originally Latin binomial names were just the Latin equivalents of common names. Today is sometimes a fair for wtf names. How can you communicate about a species that has a name of 200 kilometers ?

    China is a part of Eurasia, so, Eurasian Great Tit is a lil' bit confusing. Or : Eurasian Great Tit for major and South-asian Great Tit for cinereus ? (Yeah but a trinomial name gives the impression that both are subspecies)

    Its French name is "Manchot papou", literally "Papuan Penguin", a very misleading name. We have two wrong names for the price of one lol

    No, no lump, for me in any case. Ambiguum is probably a valid species according to recent studies

    But this lump with rufifrons is impossible if ambiguum is sister to ruficeps

    However, I remain unsatisfied and this classification has a taste of unfinished business. ☹️
