Posso, S. R., Donatelli, R. J., Piacentini, V., & Guzzi, A. (2020). Phylogeny and classification of the Bucconidae (Aves, Galbuliformes) based on osteological characters. Papéis Avulsos De Zoologia, 60, e20206027. https://doi.org/10.11606/1807-0205/2020.60.27

Abstract:

The puffbirds (Bucconidae) are relatively poorly studied birds whose intrafamilial relationships have not yet been explored within a phylogenetic framework in a published study. Here, we performed a parsimony analysis of osteological data obtained following the examination of all the genera and 32 out of the 36 species recognized in Bucconidae currently. The analysis yielded eight equally parsimonious trees (426 minimum steps). Ambiguous relationships were observed only in Notharcus ordii, Malacoptila fusca, and Nonnula rubecula. Notably, Bucco was polyphyletic, leading to the resurrection of Cyphos and Tamatia. In addition, the osteological data provided a well-resolved phylogeny (topological dichotomies) and the support indices indicated that most of the nodes were robust at all hierarchical levels. We thus propose the first revised classification of the Bucconidae.

Their results contradict those obtained by Mateus & al. in their unpublished study, especially the paraphyly of Hypnelus and Tamatia with Notharchus (Mateus & al.). I had restored Nothriscus for tectus and subtectus but, I have a doubt now.

Such articles will receive a Life Sciences Identifier (LSID) that is going to be included in the published version." -- http://www.revistas.usp.br/paz/about. Five new family-group taxa are described and named in this article.)

I also see there that "Museu de Zoologia maintains exchange agreements with several national and foreign institutions, libraries and museums which receive the print version of the journal." Is the print version still "obtainable" by the public too ? When is it published ?

I note that some modern authors use Nystactes Gloger, 1827, who considered Tamatia Cuvier, 1817, barbarous. Tamatia is based on a Tupi name for the Boat-billed Heron Cochlearius.

Gloger introduced Nystactes as a new name for Capito Vieillot 1816.

Quote:
Capito, Vt. – Nystactes, m.
Capito ein Großkopf; ein auch anderweitig häufiger vorkommendes Wort von einem sich wenig empfehlenden Sinne. – Nystactes (dormitor, nystagma Schlafsucht) in Bezug auf ihr schläfriges Wesen, weßhalb eine Art Bucco somnolentus.
Like almost all new names in this paper, this was a pure nomenclatural replacement, the only aim being to provide a “better” name for the group named Capito, "bighead", this name being judged inappropriate; the new name was justified by Gloger’s perception of these birds as being of a sleepy nature; the fact that one of them was named “Bucco somnolentus” being merely cited as an example illustrating this nature. The name is in use under the assumption that the latter species would be the type by monotypy. That this cannot be done was rightly noted, as early as 1841 by GR Gray https://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/page/14050244.

The type of Nystactes is that of Capito.

Anyway, I am not super convinced by the relevance of this phylogeny based only on osteological characters
