Cardellina, in the key is the diagnosis by Bonaparte from 1850 cited by Bonaparte to Du Bus mss. Here is an image of plate 25 of du Bus for Cardellina amicta dated as 1849 or 1850. I have not seen this image anywhere else other than Etsy! My link is messed up!
1850 Cardellina Amicta or Muscicapa rubrifrons (Red-Faced Warbler) Bird, Superb Lithograph by Severeyns. Original Large Antqiue Print

This is of course Red-faced Warbler or Musicapa rubifrons of Giraud.

The plate can be seen [here].

(Note that, in this copy, the wrapper of the book's last plate livraison [here] bears a handwritten note reading:

Thank you Laurent for finding this. I really did look hard. No clue to date on this 21 to 37 planches.

Finding the dates for the last Plates looks like a tricky case ...

Zoonomen (here) says:
Quote:
Esquis.Orn.
Esquisses Ornithologiques; descriptions et figures d'oiseaux nouveaux ou peu connus.

du Bus de Gisignies, Bernard-Aime Leonard
1845-48
Brussels A. Vandale

[Note APP: 2010.11.14 Dr David Donsker reports seeing [2010.11.13] a copy of this work for sale, in a form with all livraisons and with original wrappers, but with no dates on any of the wrappers.]
Also see here.

If of any help?

Still "not yet seen", but according to Russian zoomet (here or here) the only paper still missing in Nasha Okhota (Наша охота) ought to be:

Berlepsch in 1883 did not use Chionogaster in his OD (as Leucippus viridicauda).

So I still have no idea who created a genus Chionogaster but it must be after 1883. Or is it from Hummingbirds, Their Life and Behavior: A Photographic Study of the North American Species where something like Amazilia (Chionogaster) chionogaster viridicauda is mentioned?

Thank you, Laurent, for Fringilloides. I have taken the liberty of including your translation in the Key entry. My list of generic diagnoses not yet seen has now been reduced to 164 names in 76 titles. A visit to Tring later this year should reduce that number quite significantly.

This is actually the same journal, here listed under its French title, and from a time when St-Petersburg had been renamed Petrograd. (Still later, the Society ceased to be 'Imperial', and Petrograd became Leningrad.) I don't find it online. The full original reference of the paper appears to be:
Бутурлин СА. 1916. Краткий обзор семейства поползней (Sittidae). [A short review of nuthatches (Family Sittidae).] Труды Императорскаго Петроградскаго Общества Естествоиспытателей [Travaux de la Société impériale des naturalistes de Pétrograd], 44: 145-173.
"Actositta" should read Arctositta. In this work are also introduced Poecilositta, Mesositta (the Richmond Index has this name as Melositta, but this seems to be wrong), and Micrositta. As well as, it seems, the subfamily names Cyanosittinae and Daphaenosittinae.)
This can be seen [here], albeit only with a US IP.

In principle, they ask not to rehost files digitized by Google, though. (And it's a rather heavy pdf, >5Mb.)
The work has 20 pp of Russian text, followed by 8 pp of English 'summary'. Below is a transcription of the 'summary', obtained by running the pdf files through a free online OCR, followed by a rapid check for errors (I can't guarantee I didn't miss some, but it's definitely much better than the original Google OCR). I've tried to make indentations in the key-style part of the text correct, as I felt not having them right would have impeded the reading significantly; I didn't bother about italics/bold types.

If anyone want the whole thing (including the Russian text), just let me know (email or PM, with an email address where I can send it).

Summary.
After carefully comparing during the last ten years good
materials on Sittidae (especially in Petrograd Academical collec-
tions, thanks to the kindness of Dir. Prof. Nassonov and Cons.
Dr. Bianchi), I come to the conclusion, that notwithstanding the
great superficial likeness of all the Nuthaches, the Family is
not as homogenous, as it is commonly treated, but forms seve-
ral good natural groups.
Full list of these groups and forms they embrace is given
above (see p. 155), and here follows a Table for identification.
Diagnoses of Groups of Sittidae.
A. Bill compressed, higher than broad at base; maxillary tomia
slightly notched subterminally; nostrils long, operculate, not
consealed by bristles; second (counting outermost first) pri-
mary long, about equal to fifth or longer; rump white or
rosy-spotted . . . . . . . . . . Subfam. Daphaenosittinae.
I. Bill shorter, gonys nearly straight; tarsus longer than
middle toe; rump rosy-spotted . . . . Gen. Daphaenositta
De Vis (monotype: D. miranda .De Vis).
II. Bill longer, gonys distinctly ascending; tarsus shorter
than middle toe; rump white . . . . Gen. Neositta
Hellmayr (type: Sitta chrysoptera Lath.) ¹).
B. Bill at base rather broader than high, tomia smooth; nostrils
round or slightly oval, non-operculate, but more or less
consealed by bristles; second primary plainly shorter than
fifth; rump without white or rosy.
__________
¹) Further subdivided in 1912 by Mr. Mathews making Sittella
striata Gould type of Genus Neosittella (Austr. Av. Rec., p. 114). But
S. striata and its races are unknown to me, our museums being altoge-
ther poor in Australian birds.

hallux (without claw); coloration partly violet-
blue . . . . . . . . . . . . Subfam. Cyanosittinae.

c. Forehead feathering falls short of proximal end of
nostrils; these last very slightly concealed by
bristles; first primary very short, about equal to
primary-coverts; wing-tip (distance between ends
of longest primary and first secondary) very long:
one third of length of wing; [tarsus slender, about
one fifth of length of wing; hallux long, only 51/2
times shorter than wing;] upper side streaked
brilliant light blue and with verditer-blue patches .

end of nostrils; these are better congealed with
bristles; first primary always conspicuously longer
than primary-coverts; wing-tip much shorter than one
third of wing; [in nearly all forms tarsus more
robust and hallux shorter]; upper side dull ashy
or blueish-grey.

__________
¹) To consider A. arctica as subspecies of S. europaea seems to me
absurd. It forms at least as good a Genus, as Callisitta: its weak feet
with minute hallux are unique among Sittidae; proportion of quills is as
different from S. europaea, as the form of bill: very slender, with quite
straight culmen and strongly ascending gongs. Its tail pattern is also
quite unlike that of S. europaea and allied forms, and in these last sexes
are always plainly enough distinguishable by colouring, but in A. arctica
sexes are quite alike, as verified by myself by dissection on several
breeding pairs in Arctic Siberia. In all about three dozens of A. arctica
were compared with about five hundred specimens of S. europaea and
allied forms.

In straight parenthesis are included characters not abso-
lutely diagnostic, h. e. not absent in all other groups. I may
add, that S. magna Rams., as well as S. neglecta Wald. and
S. yunnanensis Og. Gr. are known to me only from descri-
ptions. Queried by "?" are doubtfull forms.

Some few notes must be added on several of the forms of
the list of species and subspecies. On Painted Nuthaches (Da-
phaenosittinae) and Azure Nuthaches (Cyanosittinae) I need not
dwell here more, than to state, that Cyanositta frontalis
(Swains.) from Ceylon, its terra typica, seems to me to have
longer bill, than specimens from Himalaya ("Sitta corallina"
Hodgs.). But my series being short Iam following Oates in
keeping these forms together.

Sitta europaea sakhalinensis nov. subsp. inhabits isl. Sagha-
lien; it resembles S. e. albifrons Tacz. of Kamchatka in its pale
ashy upper side (though a shade more blueish), but has shorter
bill and hind claw; dimensions in millim.: wing 78-77, its tip
19-21, first primary 15-17, bill from nostrils 11-12, height at
base 3.4-3.8 in one spec. 3.9), breadth at base 4.5-5.0 (once
5.2), tarsus 16.5-17.5 (once 18), hind claw (chord) 8.5-9. In
S. e. albifrons bill from nostrils 13.5-15.5 being 3.8-4.0 high
and 4.5-5.4 broad, wing 75-79 and hind claw 9.0-9.7 m.m.
A dozen of Saghalien birds in Petr. Acad. Museum examined.
__________
¹) Contrarily to what Dr. Hellmayr states by some oversight (in
Wytsman's "Gen. Av." pt. 16, 1911, p. 3)—S. dresseri is expressis verbis
indicated as type of Rupisitta in my paper ("Mitt. Kauk. Mus." III, 1,
1907, p. p. 49—in russ.—and 64— english text). Rock-Nuthaches seem to
form as natural a group, as Callisitia, and their extremely broad wing
with nearly obsolete wing-tip is unique in the whole Family. They nest
in rocks, not in trees. Their long external primary—a "young" ontogen-
etic character—seems to indicate archaic nature of Rupisitta.

S. clara Stejn. I take to be synonymous with S. e. sibirica
Pall. (S. uralensis and S. baicalensis auct.), as specimens from
Yezo, Hakodate, that I compared, were in dimensions and colou-
ring identical with continental birds.

Sitta europaea biedermanni Rchw. is, though slightly,
still. distinguishable from S. e. sibirica. I examined about two
dozens of Altai specimens, including the type (through the kind-
ness of Prof. A. Reichenow), and find them to average smaller:
wing 73.5-79, bill from nostrils 10, oftener 11-12.5, very
rarely 13, its height 3.3, oftener 3.4.-3.9, rarely 4 and excep-
tionally 4.2 m.m. Chestnut on flancs and in ♀ ocreous tinge
on the vent somewhat more developed. [In S. e. sibirica wing
76-82, rarely 83, bill from nostrils rarely 11, commonly 12--
13.5, exceptionally up to 14, being 3.8-4.3, rarely 4.4 high;
hind claw about 9-9.5 and tarsus about 18.5-19.5 m.m. In S. e.
europaea wing 83-90, rarely down to 81 (only in ♀ less
than 84) bill from nostrils 14-15.5 and 4.3-4.8, rarely 4.2
high; hind claw about 9.5-10.5, tarsus about 19.5-20.5 m.m.).
This small form inhabits' not only Altai Mts, but N. and N. W.
Mongolia as well (Kossogol lake, Onon riv.), were some speci-
mens however are intermediate or even true sibirica. From eas-
tern parts of Tian-Shan ranges I had only two specimens: one
(♂, May, wing 77, bill fr. nostr. 12 and 4.0 m.m. high) seems to
be true S. e. biedermanni, other (♂, August, Tymerty) was excee-
dingly like S. e. amurensis; perhaps only just a shade paler on the
belly (creamy—ochraceous) and slightly more chestnut on flancs.
It was not only labelled ♂, but coloured as such (under tail
coverts not rufous, but rufous-chestnut). I may add that S. e.
amurensis ranges far to the north also: about Ayan on Okhotsk
sea it is met with side by side with S. e. sibirica.

Sitta europaea hondoensis nov. subsp. inhabits. Hondo isl.
Japan and differs from S. e. amurensis S w in h. of Amoor and
Ussuri in being smaller: dimensions in millim.

------------------ wing... bill. fr. nostr... its height... hind claw.
S. hondoensis... 77-79... 12-13............ 3.6-4.1.... 8-9
S. amurensis.... 79-83... 13-13.5......... 4.1-4.4.... 9-10

Types are in my collection: ♂♂ 20 sept. 1905 Fuji, 7 Nov.
1906 Shinano, ♀ 20 Febr. 1907 Shinano. Five specimens exa-
mined.

- 172 -
Sitta europaea homeyeri Seebohm is considered by Dr.
Hartert (Ibis 1892 p. 362 and Vög. pal. 1905 p. 330) as a
a nomen nudum. It is so on the page quoted (Bird. Japan. Env.
1890 p. 92), but on the following page Seebohm writes "Sitta
caesia amurensis, which only differs from Sitta caesia homeyeri
in having the smaller dimensions of Sitta caesia uralensis". And
as S. amurensis is a long ago described and figured and very
well known bird,-this comparison forms quite a sufficient descrip-
tion, much better than scores of Linnean, Boddaert's and
other names, accepted by all zoologists. Therefore true S. e.
homeyeri is a bird coloured as S. e. amurensis, with creamy-
ocreous belly and with chest and breast white (in ♀ lower or
even whole breast more or less tinged). Such birds inhabit Cour-
land, southernmost Livonia, Lithuania and south to Podolia;
from central Livonia to central Russia and further north and
east quite typical S. europaea is only met with. Such true
S. e. homeyeri were recently renamed S. e. sztolcmani by Doma-
ewski in "Орнит. Вѣстн." 1915.

From Pomerania (perhaps parts of Mecklenburg) into
Eastern Prussia and through Poland and parts of Silesia into
Galicia birds are distributed that are also intermediate between
S. e. europaea and S. e. caesia, but nearer to the later (as
S. e. homeyeri Seeb. is nearer to the former): belly rufous,
breast and partly chest more or less creamy-ocreous. It is S. e.
sordida Rchw. (Cotype labelled "17 Sept. 1905, Bromberg,
Kothe S. G", evidently ♀, examined). It is "S. homeyeri" of Dr.
Hartert 1892 and 1905, of Dr. Hellmayr 1903 and 1911,
and others, but not of Seebohm (who infortunately gives no
type and too broad a distribution).

I must add, that some specimens not only from western
Poland, but even from Warsaw distr. and Podolia are quite true
S. e. caesia, with rufous on all the underside intense, and only
sides of head and all the throat white (slightly creamy), as in
typical birds from Western Germany).

Sitta rubiginosa Zarud. et Tsch. is looked at as subspe-
cies of S. europaea, following the original quite insufficient and
even misleading description (and Dr. Hellmayr's diagnosis in
"Gen. Av." is no better). In S. europaea and all its numerous
races three pairs of side rectrices have large, sharp, snowy-
white spots; in all S. rubiginosa examined (more than twenty)

- 173 -
here is no trace of such pattern. Therefore I take it to be
quite a good species. Above it is darker, than S. e. caesia and
S. e caucasica, below-brighter than cassia, but not so intense as
caucasica; upper throat whitish, but sides of head ocreous; films
very dark chestnut, more intense than in caesia and caucasica.
Wing 81-90, exposed culmen 17.5-20, and from nostrils 13.5-16,
its height being 4.5-5.6 m.m.

Rupisitta tephronota iranica nov. subsp. inhabits north-eas-
tern Persia and adjoining parts of Trans-caspian prov. It differs
from R. t. tephronota of Turkestan (typical locality Ferghana) in
being smaller, with bill about as long, but slenderer:

----------------- wing... tarsus... bill fr.nostr... its.height... its.breadth.at middle.
R. iranica........ 79-83... 22-23.6... 16-18... 4.6-5.2... 2.6-2.9
R. tephronota... 82-90... 23.8-25.... 16-18... 5.1-5.5.. 3.0-3.25

Types-three specimens from March 1905, Transcaspian-Persian
boundary, in my collection. About a dozen and half examined.

Regarding the still "not yet seen" ....
Quote:
Beiträge zur Ornithologie Afrika's
Carpospiza von Müller 1854, III, pl. X
Doesn't Cabanis in this Paper (in Journal für Ornithologie) tell us that von Müller's Beiträge zur Ornithologie Afrika's, III und IV. Lieferung. 1854" was published (in French) as "Description des Oiseaux d'Afrique nouvellement découverts et dessinés d'après nature" ...?!?

But, even if so, with only minor understanding of German, I cannot tell where or when, nor in what publication, it awaits to be seen.

If of any help?

He says two things, that may not be directly related: (1) that the 3rd and 4th Lieferungen have appeared; and (2) that a second edition of this work with French title and text is produced simultaneously for the foreign countries.
BHL only has the first (German) Lieferung of this work: [here]. At the end of this Lieferung, [here] (this is probably the fourth 'page' of a folded sheet acting as a wrapper for the Lieferung), there is an advertisement for other works from the same author and publisher, incl. indeed the first livraison of "Description des oiseaux d'Afrique, nouvellement découverts et dessinés d'après nature". This suggests that a double publication process, in German and in French, took place from the beginning.

I'm not sure the French title remained exactly the same, as there is a lot of variation in citations from secondary sources; the most frequent variant is "Description de nouveaux oiseaux d'Afrique, découverts et dessinés d'après nature".

Beiträge zur Gattungssystematik der Vögel

From the Google Books examplar -

1) Wolters HE. 1949. Beiträge zur Gattungssystematik der Finkenvögel. I. Pp. 3-17 in: Wolters HE, Boetticher H von. Beiträge zur Gattungssystematik der Vögel. 1. Goecke & Evers, Krefeld.

Mayrimunia Wolters 1949: I, p.9
Quote:
Mayrimunia. subg. nov.
Durch rein gelben Bürzel bei meist mehr oder minder deutlicher heller Tüpfelung von Flügeldecken und Rücken und verhältnismäßig düster, braun bis schwarz gefärbtem Unterkörper ausgezeichnet und durch diese Färbungszusammenstellung von allen anderen Subgenera von Lonchura unterschieden. Mittlere Steuerfedern nicht in eine deutliche Spitze ausgezogen. Erinnert an Heteromunia einerseits und an die leucogaster-Gruppe andererseits. Typus, hier bezeichnet, Lonchura tristissima hypomelaena Stresemann & Paludan, Orn. Monatsber., 42, p. 43, 1934. Hierher die Arten L. tristissima (Wall.) und L. leucosticta (D'Albertis & Salvad.).
Lemuresthes Wolters 1949: I, p.10
Quote:
Lemuresthes. subg. nov.
Der einzige alt-einheimische Webefink Madagaskars weicht so sehr von den anderen Arten seiner Gattung ab, daß eine Sonderung in einer eigenen Untergattung unbedingt geboten erscheint. REICHENBACH, Singvögel, p. 48, 1862/63, hatte die Gattung Lepidopygia dafür geschaft, allein dieser Name ist durch Lepidopygia Sclater, Cat. Coll. Amer. Bds. p. 317, 1861/62, praeoccupiert. Lemuresthes ist wie folgt gekennlichnet und von den anderen Subgenera der Gattung unterschieden: ehnlich Spermestes Swainson 1837, aber Kopf und Hals nicht schwarz, indem grau mit kleinem schwarzem Kehlfleck; die Schwingen weisen jeder weiße Gitterflecken noch dunkle Bandflecken auf; auf dem Bürzel finden sich keine deutlichen Querbinden; der Unterkörper ist nicht weiß, sondern rosig braungrau. Typus, hier bezeichnet, Pyrrhula nana Pucheran, Rev. Zool. 1845, p. 45. — Einzige Art der Untergattung ist Lonchura nana.
Stictospermestes Wolters 1949: I, p.10
Quote:
Stictospermestes. subg. nov.
Sehr ähnlich der Untergattung Spermestes Swainson 1837, aber Schwingen weiß getüpfelt, wodurch eine eigenartige Gitterzeichnung entsteht, die freilich bei L. b. bicolor weitgehend reduziert ist; Rücken schwarz oder braun, im letzteren Falle aber zum Unterschied von Spermestes stets mit deutlicher weißer Schwingengitterung. Typus, hier bezeichnet, Amadina poensis Fraser, Proc. Zool. Soc. 1842, p. 145 = Lonchura (Stictospermestes) bicolor poensis (Fräs.). — Einzige Art der Untergattung: L. bicolor, wozu die Formen von L. nigriceps als Subspezies gehören.
2) Boetticher H von. 1949. Zur Systematik der "Baumenten" oder Pfeifgänse. Pp. 18-25 in: Wolters HE, Boetticher H von. Beiträge zur Gattungssystematik der Vögel. 1. Goecke & Evers, Krefeld.

Prosopocygna Boetticher 1949: I, p.23
Quote:
Prosopocygna. subgen.nov.
Genotyp: Anas viduata LINNAEUS, Syst. Nat., ed. 12, 1, 1766.
Umfang: Dendrocygna (Prosopocygna) viduata (L.) allein: Monotyp.
Diagnose: Von der Untergattung Dendrocygna SWAINSON s. str. durch relativ zu der Länge der Mittelzehe etwas höhere Läufe, sowie hauptsächlich durch den stark abweichenden Charakter der Gefiederfärbung bzw. Zeichnung unterschieden, bei der die schwarze Färbung am Hinterkopf und auf der Unterseite vorherrscht und die besonders durch das weiße Gesicht und die eigenartige gelbbraun-schwarze Bänderung der Körperseiten gekennzeichnet wird und von allen anderen Gruppen der Sektion deutlich abweicht. In der Färbung, der Flügeldecken, des Schnabels und der Füße, sowie in der Gestalt und Bildung des Schnabels mit Dendrocygna s. str. ziemlich übereinstimmend.
Nesocygna Boetticher 1949: I, p.24
Quote:
Nesocygna. gen. nov.
Genotyp: Anas arborea LINNAEUS, Syst. Nat., ed. 10, 1, 1758.
Umfang: Nesocygna (Nesocygna) arborea (L.) allein: Monotyp.
Diagnose: Von den Arten der Gattung Dendrocygna SWAINSON durch bedeutendere Körpergröße, relativ längere Flügel, relativ höhere und stärkere Läufe und Füße und plumperen, kräftigeren Schnabel, sowie durch den Besitz von stärker schopfartig verlängerten Genickfedern unterschieden. Eine besondere Stellung nimmt auch die im übrigen im Körperbau und in allgemeiner Struktur mit der vorigen Art weitgehend übereinstimmende und wie diese offenbar noch auf einem relativ primitiverer Standpunkt verharrende, sich aber besonders durch die rote Färbung dei Füße und des Schnabels, sowie durch die Eigenart und Gefiederzeichnung auszeichnende „Dendrocygna" guttata SCHLEGEL. Man wird ihr den Rang einer besonderen Untergattung zugestehen müssen, sie aber wohl im Schöße der vorigen Gattung Nesocygna belassen dürfen.
Stagonocygna Boetticher 1949: I, p.24
Quote:
Stagonocygna. subgen. nov.
Genotyp: Dendrocygna guttata SCHLEGEL, Mus. Pays-Bas, 6, 1866.
Umfang: Nesocygna (Stagonocygna) guttata (SCHLEGEL) allein: Monotyp.
Diagnose: Durch die rote Färbung der Füße und des Schnabels von den Untergattungen Dendrocygna s. str., Prosopocygna und Nesocygna sowie durch den allgemeinen Charakter der Färbung und Zeichnung des übrigen Gefieders, besonders durch die weiße Tropfenfleckung am Hinterhals und auf den Brustseiten und schwarz-weiße Fleckung der Welchen deutlich und gut kenntlich von allen anderen Arten unterschieden.
Lamprocygna Boetticher 1949: I, p.25
Quote:
Lamprocygna. gen. nov.
Genotyp: Anas autumnalis LINNAEUS, Syst. Nat., ed. 10, 1, 1758.
Umfang: nur Lamprocygna autumnalis (L.) mit den beiden Rassen L. a. autumnalis (L.) und L. a. discolor (SCLATER & SALVIN).
Diagnose: Von den Untergattungen Dendrocygna, Prosopocygna und Nesocygna durch die rote Färbung der Füße und des Schnabels unterschieden. Der plumpere Schnabel an der Wurzel ebenso breit wie hoch nicht höher als breit wie bei Dendrocygna s. str., der kräftigere Nagel des Oberschnabels stumpfwinklig herabgebogen (nicht rechtwinklig wie bei Dendrocygna s. str.), Füße relativ zur Länge der Mittelzehe etwas langer als bei Dendrocygna s. str. und selbst bei Prosopocygna. Gefieder einfarbigen breiten Flächenelementen gemustert, ohne Bänderungen, Strichelungen, Punkt- oder Tropfenflecken, sowie mit besonders auffallendem weißem Flügelfleck.

Galapagornis Boetticher 1949: I, p.27
Quote:
4. Subgenus Galapagornis subgen. nov. Aehnlich, aber Schnabel kürzer, etwa 102 — 113 mm lang, verhältnis- etwas zusammengedrückt, die Nasenröhren sind etwas abgeflacht und ihre Oeffnungen sind oval und etwas aufwärts gerichtet, so daß sie von oben her zu sehen sind. Art: (Genotyp): Diomedea (Galapagornis) irrorata Salvin.
Penthirenia Boetticher 1949: I, p.27
Quote:
5. Subgenus Penthirenia subgen. nov. Aehnlich, aber Schnabel kürzer, etwa 102 — 113 mm lang, verhältnismäßig dicker und an der Wurzel nicht zusammengedrückt. Die Nasenöffnungen sind abgerundet und nach vorn gerichtet, so daß sie nur teilweise von oben zu sehen sind. Junge und alte Vögel sind in der Gefiederfärbung fast gleich, dunkel rußbraun (retardiertes Jugendkleid). Art (Genotyp): Diomedea (Penthirenia) nigripes Audubon.
Laysanornis Boetticher 1949: I, p.27
Quote:
6. Subgenus Laysanornis subgen. nov. Aehnlich, aber Schnabel noch kürzer, nur etwa 100 — 109 mm lang und deutlich schmaler, an der Wurzel zusammengedrückt und schlanker. Junge und alte Vögel gleich gefärbt (Kopf, Hals und Unterseite well Rücken und Flügel dunkel), besonderes Jugendkleid fehlt! Art (Genotyp): Diomedea (Laysanornis) immutabilis Rothschild.

Pseudochloroptila Wolters 1950: II, p.33
Quote:
Pseudochloroptila. subg. nov.
Die Arten Carduelis totta und C. symonsi weichen von den nächstverwandten Subgenera der Gattung Carduelis Briss. so sehr ab, daß ihre Sonderung in einer besonderen Untergattung unter allen Umständen notwendig erscheint; daher dürfte eine Benennung dieses Subgenus gerechtfertigt sein. In diesem Subgenus, das Pseudochloroptila heißen möge, ist der Schnabel schlanker und weniger geschwollen als bei Serinus Koch, Pronospiza Robts., Alario Bonap., Ochrospiza Robts. etc., etwa wie bei Chloroptila Salvad., auch an die schlankschnäbeligen Formen von Dendrospiza Robts. erinnernd, von diesen beiden Untergattungen aber durch auffallende weiße Abzeichen wenigstens an den Steuerfedern unterschieden, ferner durch ausgedehnte braune Partien der Oberseite, wie sie dort nur bei Carduelis (Chloroptila) citrinella corsicana vorkommen; von Astragalinus Cab., dessen Weibchen und männliches Ruhekleid bei C. (A). tristis in der Färbung und Zeichnung Pseudochloroptila ziemlich nahe kommen, durch weniger schlanken Schnabel und Fehlen eines besonderen Ruhekleides unterschieden, von Chloris Cuv. u. a. durch die weißen Abzeichen im Schwanz und geringere Größe, von Linaria Bechst. (Typus, C. cannabina) durch andere Färbung (Vorkommen grüngelber Feder- partien, Fehlen von Rot) und Zeichnung, von Spinus Koch durch andere Flügel- und Schwanzzeichnung und das Vorherrschen von Braun auf der Oberseite. Pseudochloroptila umfaßt oberseits in der Hauptsache braune, unterseits grüngelbe Finken von der Gestalt eines kleineren Girlitz (Serinus u. verwandte Subgenera), aber mit schlankerem Schnabel und anderem Zeichnungscharakter, besonders an Schwingen und Schwanz: weiße Spitzenflecken der Steuerfedern (C. totta) oder die äußeren Steuerfedern mit weißer Zeichnung an Innenfahne und Spitze. Typus, hier bezeichnet, Loxia totta Sparrman, Mus. Carls. I, Taf. 18 (1786).

Andichenodes Boetticher 1950: II, p.43
Quote:
Die Andengans, bisher als Chloephaga melanoptera (EYTON) bekannt, weicht von den Arten dieser Gattung nicht nur durch gedrungeneren Schnabel, massigeren Körperbau, die auffallend rote Färbung von Schnabel und Füßen, schwarze, metallisch grün schimmernde Schulterfedern und violettroten, nicht erzgrünen Metallglanz des Spiegels, sondern besonders durch das Gehabe, die Art des Laufens mit stark zurückgelehntem Hals und an den Hals angedrücktem Kinn, vorgewölbter Brust und gesträubtem Gefieder und das Triumphgehabe ab, bei dem der Hals abwechselnd bis zum Boden vor- und abwärts gestreckt, und dann wieder rückwärts über den Rücken geworfen wird, wobei Scheitel und Hinterhals den Rücken berühren. In diesen ethologischen Eigenheiten nähert sich die Andengans auffallend der Orinokogans, Neochen jubatus und muß daher in einer eigenen, intermediär zwischen Neochen und Chloephaga stehenden Gattung abgetrennt werden, die ich
Andichenodes. gen. nov.
nenne. (Genotyp: Anser melanopterus EYTON, Monogr. Anat., 1838, S. 93, Titikakasee).
Dyseonetta Boetticher 1950: II, p.43
Quote:
Von den beiden amerikanischen Tafelenten, Aristonetta vallisineria (WILSON) und A. americana (EYTON), die im selben Gebiet zusammen vorkommen und daher nicht zum selben Artenkreis gehören, ist die erstere nichts weiter als eine größere, längerhalsige, längerschnäbelige und hellere Form der eurasiatischen Tafelente, Aristonetta ferina (L.). Auch in der scharlachroten Augenfärbung stimmen beide Arten überein und weichen von dem gelbäugigen Red-Head deutlich ab. Letzterer hingegen, der sog. Red-Head steht außerhalb dieses Artenkreises und weicht schon durch die Kopfform mit dem deutlich abgerundeten Schädel und der steil ansteigenden Stirn, dem sehr kurzen Schnabel und die buschigen, bürstenartig emporstehenden Stirn- und Scheitelfedern ab. Nach den WOLTERS'schen Kriterien für die Abgrenzung der Untergattungen ist es daher geboten, diesen Red-Head, die "Westente" subgenerisch zu sondern. Ich benenne diese nur aus dieser Art als Genotyp bestehende Untergattung als
Dyseonetta. subgen. nov.
(Genotyp: Fuligula americana EYTON, Monogr. Anat., 1838, S. 155, Nordamerika).

Until we find diagnosis of Carpospiza von Müller 1854 there is "Pyrenestes? Gray, Carpodacus Bp, lacteus v. Müller "
https://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/...e/343/mode/1up .
Hartert in Die Vögel Der Paläarktischen Fauna puts (Sic) in right after lacteus. Because it should be lactea? No. Richmond says v. Muller puts Pyrenestes lecteus as synonym of Carpospiza.
http://www.zoonomen.net/cit/RI/SP/Caly/caly01067a.jpg .
The specific name brychydactyla is a Hemprich name.
https://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/...e/791/mode/1up . In von Muller 1854 the specific name is longipennis. Bonaparte uses the name Carpospiza brevipennis.

Another Update

Just to save anyone from unnecessary work ...

After yet another visit to Stockholms universitetsbibliotek (the Stockholm University Library), checking up some old Swedish books for my MS, I also had a look for (and supplied James with):

Annals of the/Mededelingen van het Transvaal Museum, vol.12 (4), 1928 ... incl. Chapinortyx.

● The Birds of the Philippine Islands [with Notes on the Mammal Fauna], vol. II, Part IV,1935 ... incl. Takatsukasaia and Borisia.

Contributions to the Birds of the Philippines, No. II, Part VI, 1930 ... incl. Apoia (and Hypocryptadiinæ Subfamily nov.)

Verhandlungen der Deutschen Zoologen (vom 2.bis 6. August 1949 in Mainz), 1950 ... incl. Sacrifator.

Zoologischer Anzeiger, ...
Band 142, 1943 ... incl. Aethiopinetta.
Band 143, 1943 ... incl. Boetticherella, Groteiplectes, Phlogoplectes, Paraplectes, Tachyplectes, Krimhilda, Hypargoides, Euschistospiza, Charitochelidon and Woltersia.
Band 145, "1944" (i.e. 1950, on the Title Page) ... incl. Amoravis, Donkorella and/but not ... ?!*.
Band 146, 1951 ...incl. Eolybius, Leucolybius, Pogonodon, Murututtu and Phalacrobucco.
Band 147, 1951 ...incl. Queleopsis, Porphyropsar and Polytelopsar.
Due to copyright rules (on some/most of them) none will be posted/attached here. If anyone else is interested in having a copy, of either one, drop me a line (and if so, use the Bird Forum's Private Message system). However; note that I (in most cases) only copied the pages with "Diagnoses not yet seen", not the full paper/book/journal.

Björn

___________________________________________________________
* Zoologischer Anzeiger, Band 145 (Heft 9-10), of "Oktober 1950" also incl. a Paper by Hans von Boetticher, where he once again explains the name Baruwaia that he himself originally described in 1947, in the hard-to-find journal "Orion (Naturwissenschaftlich-Technische Zeitschrift für Jedermann) ".
Quote:
.. für die Untergattung der afrikanischen rotköpfigen Streifenschwalben einen neuen Namen zu wählen.

Als solchen wählte ich in Anlehnung an den in der Kiswahili-Sprache üblichen Namen für die Schwalben "m b a r u w a i", unter Weglassung des ein beleptes Wesen in der Einzahl bezeichnenden Präfixpronomens "m" vor dem eigentlichen Wortstamm, sowie in einer durch Hinzufügung der Femininendung "a" etwas latinisierter Form, die Bezeichnung:

B a r u w a i a V. BOETTICHER

[...]
Maybe that´ll do!? We will see if James find it satisfactory (I sent him that one as well).

Also see nextcoming post!

Herr Klatt's Turtle Doves

So what about the one I didn't find?
Quote:
Zoologischer Anzeiger
[...]
Bertholdipelia Boetticher 1950: 145, p.62
[...]
Bertholdipelia is still "not yet seen", and probably not to be found in the regular edition of the Zoologischer Anzeiger. I couldn't find it anyhere in this Journal, not in (Band) "145" (of 1950*), and certainly not on p.62, in that volume. I folded back and forth, without finding it.

According to the Richmond card (here) Berholdipelia Boetticher 1950 is found in "Festschrift für Berthold Klatt, 1950, 62" [which, most likely is equal of Neue Ergebnisse und Probleme der Zoologie (Festschrift für Berthold Klatt zum 65. Geburtstag am 4. April 1950)**]. I assume this volume was published as a supplement to the Zoologischer Anzeiger 1950, celebrating Berthold Klatt's 65th birthday.

If of any use?

Good luck finding the OD!

Björn

PS. Either way; I think the above is (more than) enough to consider the German zoologist Berthold Klatt (1885-1858) a highly likely dedicatee (at least for part of this generic name) . His full name seems to have been Paul Erich Berthold Klatt. Wiki here. On the Title pages, on quite a few (if not all?), of the Zoologischer Anzeiger I looked at this time, it´s written: "Herausgegeben von BERTHOLD KLATT Professor an der Universität Hamburg ...". Surely he must be "our" guy!

_________________________________________________
* Band 145 covers 1944-1950 (there´s a big gap post-WWII)
** See; here, here, here alt. here.

Quote:
Zwei neue Untergattungen der Gattung Streptopelia BONAPARTE :
1. Bertholdipelia subgen. nov.
Genotyp: Columba semitorquata RUEPPELL, Neue Wirbelthiere, Vögel, 1837, S. 66 (Taranta-Gebirge, Abessinien).
Umfang: Streptopelia (Bertholdipelia) semitorquaia (RUEPPELL) und Rassen.
Diagnose: Innenfahne der ersten (eigentlich zweiten) Schwinge mit zahnartiger Einkerbung, distal von dieser die Fahne deutlich verschmälert, ähnlich wie bei Afropelia, bei der aber die absetzende Stufe einen flacheren Winkel bildet (vgl. KLEINSCHMIDTS Abbildungen in J. f. O. 53, 1905, Taf. VI, Fig. l bzw. 3 u. 5). Um das Auge ein breites nacktes Hautfeld, wie bei der folgenden Untergattung, doch relativ weniger breit als bei dieser; hierin von Streptopelia s. str. und Afropelia abweichend.
Den Namen wählte ich zu Ehren meines Freundes Herrn Prof. Dr. BERTHOLD KLATT, der am 4. April 1950 sein 65. Lebensjahr vollendet hat, und dem ich aus diesem Anlaß diese vorliegende Studie widme, gleichzeitig als Erinnerung an unsere im Jahre 1913 gemeinsam unternommene Studien- und Forschungsreise nach Eritrea, die uns u. a. auch in die "terra typica" der Nominativrasse dieses Genotyps, in die Gegend um das Taranta-Gebirge, führte, wo wir u. a. auch diese Vogelform in der Freiheit kennenlernen konnten und sie beobachtet und gesammelt haben.
2. Aethiopelia subgen. nov.
Genotyp: Turtur decipiens HARTLAUB u. FINSCH, Vögel Ostafrikas, 1870, S. 544 (Ostafrika = Dongola, vgl. ZEDLITZ, J. f. O. 62, 1914, S. 647).
Umfang: Streptopelia (Aethiopelia) decipiens (HARTLAUB und FINSCH) und Rassen.
Diagnose: Innenfahne der ersten (eigentlich zweiten) Schwinge am distalen Ende nicht durch eine zahnartige Einkerbung verschmälert, hierin von Afropelia und Bertholdipelia abweichend und mit Streptopelia s. str. übereinstimmend. Um das Auge ein sehr breites nacktes Hautfeld, wie bei Bertholdipelia etwa, jedoch abweichend von den Untergattungen Streptopelia s. str. und Afropelia, bei denen nur ein schmaler nackter Hautsaum um das Auge herum zu bemerken ist.

Hans (von) Boetticher himself ...

And while we´re at it ...

To me it looks like we ought to add a (noble) "von" to the name of "Hans Boetticher" (commemorated in Boetticherella (and boetticheri).

See here.

A few less to search for ...

The following journals/books have also been delivered to James Jobling (and his HBW Alive Key):

Anzeiger der Ornithologischen Gesellschaft in Bayern (Band II, Nr.8) ... incl. Cossyphicula Grote 1934

Bulletins de la Société Royale de Zoologie d'Anvers (N° 15) ... incl. Kiwi Verheyen 1960

Die Vogelarten der Erde, by Hans Edmund Wolters (1975-1982) ... incl. Oenositta, Chionomitris, Rhododendroeca, Amphispizopsis, Schistolais, Chrysominla, Strophocincla, Otocichla, Phoenicuropsis and Vauriella ... [+ Melizocincla (p.405), Dorisornis (p.413), Dorisella (p.414) and Rauenia (p.340)]

That´s it guys! That´s all I (and the libraries in Stockholm) can deliver.

Enough is enough!

We´re ticking off the list!

As of now this thread is so prolooooooooonged, it´s hard to grasp ...

Thereby, let´s see; what´s left of all those Jobling's "Diagnosis not yet seen":

Well, that´s it ... still a long list, but considerably shorter than in post #41!

Sorting out the rest, of all the others (i.e. Diagnosis not yet seen/verified/ascertained), I gladly leave to James ...

Keep digging!

Björn

PS. James, I hope you will keep us updated on the results of your forthcoming visit to Tring (simply to avoid anyone searching, without cause, for a text you´ve already got).

Hemiprocne (syn. Collocalia)
I have already included the Richmond Card Index quotation, which I assume is part of the original diagnosis, in the Key entry. It does not contain the name Hemiprocne, hence still the need to see the OD.
