Trochilus viridigula, LINN. Gen. 66
Martin, I assume Boodaert's reference (and OD) of "Trochilus viridigula
. 66", in the 1783 work, aims only
at the Generic name Trochilus
(Richmond card, here
), as in; Genera No. 66. TROCHILUS (in Linnaeus' Systema naturae
, 12th Ed., 1766 (here
. No. 60 (in Linnaeus' Systema naturae
, 10th Ed., 1758 (here
Compare with the preceding species in Boddaert's 1783 work "Certhia violacea
. 65.", that takes us to Genera No. 65 CERTHIA, on p.184, in the same work/edition of Linnaeus (1766).
If not; I have no idea.
PS. Ooups! Laurent's reply (with a similar conclusion), wasn't posted when I started to type. Sorry for cross-posting.
