Hmmm . . . if it isn't, would that make the genus invalid, or at least better cited to a different later author?

(edit: BHL ascribes that part Abt.2, Bd.1 to 1836 ??)

The name is available from there. (Although some authors, like Mathews, have in the past treated all the names introduced in a similar way by Reichenbach as unidentifiable.) I just always feel it is rather odd to call a drawing a 'protologue' -- somehow this lacks the λόγος (= verbal utterance, discourse) dimension entirely. But it may just be me.

Introduction without any included nominal species. The type is Hirundo rupestris Scopoli 1769 https://biodiversitylibrary.org/page/31117794 by subsequent monotypy in Parzudaki 1856 https://biodiversitylibrary.org/page/33450559.

Yes, I know. They are wrong.

Oeuvres completes de Buffon

I gave up to understand all this different publications of Oeuvres completes de Buffon. Gubernatrix might be even in Biodiversity Heritage Library to find. But which Edition can I find this Volume 8 where Lesson described Gubernatrix?

OK here.

Hirundo leucopyga Meyen, 1834 (now Tachycineta leucopyga)

According to Mlíkovský (and also in Zoonomen), published on page 73 in Meyen, F. J. F. (1834), Beiträge zur Zoologie, gesammelt auf einer Reise um die Erde. 4. Vögel. Verhandlungen der Kaiserlichen Leopoldinisch-Carolinischen Akademie der Naturforscher 16 (Supplement) 1: 59–124.

A search for this in BHL gives what appears to be possibly the right paper here (title page), with the correct author and partly same article title, but with a different journal title. However page 73 gives no mention of any Hirundo, nor does a text search find 'Hirundo' anywhere in the paper.

Any clarifications where I've gone wrong, please?

You missed the "Supplement" detail in the ref, and BHL lacks it, I think. (Or at least, I always failed to find it there.)

Excellent, thanks! Though the item at BHL is - or at least claims to be - the supplement (see printscreen below!). Maybe BHL uploaded the wrong book by accident?

Quite possibly.
You are indeed right that BHL claims it to be a supplement to the Tomus 16 of Nova Acta Physico-medica Academiae Caesareae Leopoldino-Carolinae Naturae Curiosorum (= Band 8 of Verhandlungen der Kaiserlichen Leopoldinisch-Carolinischen Akademie der Naturforscher), but the title page does not cite the journal, and it wasn't even published at the same location (Berlin, vs. Bonn & Bratislava for the journal). (Compare to the title pages of the Google Books volume, or to the supplements of other volumes at BHL.)

Thanks again! Is there any way of notifying them they have the wrong book there?

I never tried, but there is this : https://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/contact/
This would presumably be a 'Bibliographic Issue'.
