Scrutiny wanted from as many as possible!

Anyone of you "Trochilidae taxonomist's" feel like having a look at a little Etymology?

If so, have a look at the thread The mysterious Monsieur Longuemare in Longuemare's Sunangel … in the Bird Name Etymology sub-Forum.

Every response is welcomed!

Trochilus

Judy, Brumfield & Graves. Speciation and hybridization in Jamaican Streamertail Hummingbirds. Evolution 2014. (p242)
Quote:
Trochilus polytmus and Trochilus scitulus are known to hybridize, but the hybrid zone has stayed shockingly narrow through time. The origin and maintenance of such a narrow hybrid zone linking species with high dispersal capabilities on a small oceanic island defies traditional explanations. The standard toolbox of techniques and genetic markers used to study hybrid zones has failed to reveal fixed differences that are generally needed to reconstruct speciation scenarios. We use genotyping-by-sequencing to gather a genomic single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) dataset for both parental types and putative hybrids. We use these data to examine patterns of genomic differentiation and introgression and look for signatures of selection. We discuss the implications of these results for Trochilus, and also discuss ways these genomic data can be used in conjunction with other datasets for hybrid zone studies.

Violet Sabrewing

Escalante & Hernández-Baños. Cryptic species detected by DNA in the Violet Sabrewing (Campylopterus hemileucurus). 26th IOC, Tokyo, 2014.
Quote:
In the course of barcoding the birds of Mexico using a 650 bp of the CO1 mitochondrial gene, we came across one specimen that differed remarkably from 2 other specimens collected in the same area of Veracruz (Los Tuxtlas, Mexico). Sequences were checked to discard mislabelling of specimens, or nuclear sequences. Blast of the odd sequence matched almost completely one sample of Violet Sabrewing in the Barcode of Life Data System from Panama. Twelve more samples of Violet Sabrewings from Veracruz have been analysed and a more robust pattern has emerged, revealing two populations in southern Veracruz of different genetic origin (7.6% genetic distance with a neighbour joining algorithm between the two groups). Because these samples show a clear-cut difference the only plausible explanation is that they belong to different lineages. Violet Sabrewings are abundant in tropical rain forest ranging from southern Mexico to Panama. Although seasonal fluctuations had been detected in Nicaragua and Costa Rica (Skutch 1967, Stiles ad Skutch 1989) they are usually recorded as resident hummingbirds. Altitudinal and intratropical migratory behavior are expected in frugivorous or nectarivorous species (Levey and Stiles 1992) due to the high spatial and temporal variation in their resource base, but patterns of movement in tropical species are basically unknown. Morphological data corroborates this result. The pattern now indicates that either the Veracruz population receives an intra-tropical migratory population from the south, or the two putative species are sympatric in this part of the range. A more detailed study throughout the species range is under way.
Stiles 1999 (HBW 5).

Basilinna is treated as valid genus by Howell & Webb 1995, HBW/BirdLife and IOC; but is merged into Hylocharis by AOU, H&M4 and eBird/Clements.

Quote:
Several common names have previously been given to lyrura: Lyre-shaped Woodstar (Gould 1887), Lyre-tailed Hummingbird (Cory 1880), Inagua Woodstar (Cory 1918), and Inagua Sheartail (Howell 2002). "Lyre-tailed" refers to the uniquely shaped tail feathers of males, which originally characterized the species, whereas "Inagua" is the appropriate toponym. Given the unique, outwardly curving tail feathers of males and their endemic Inaguan geography, we recommend the common name Inaguan Lyretail.

One interesting tidbit from the discussion: They have found Vervain Hummingbird and Bahama Woodstar to be sister species. Bee Hummingbird is not sister to Vervain according to personal communication from someone else.

Inagua Woodstar

TiF Update July 9
Based on Feo et al. (2015) and the 56th AOU supplement, the Inagua Woodstar, Nesophlox lyrura, has been split from the Bahama Woodstar, Nesophlox evelynae. Also, to match SACC usage, the English name of Anthocephala berlepschi becomes Tolima Blossomcrown (was Andean Blossomcrown).
