Hasn't the Gran Canaria Robin already been described (albeit as a subspecies)? See https://benthamopen.com/contents/pdf...OENIJ-8-39.pdf

The Alto Pisones Tapaculo was (until recently) and various Peruvian birds are in a similar situation, but the main difference is doubtless widespread usage of a name that looks like an available scientific name but (as far as I am aware still) is not (yet). The name was first used in an ABC publication, discussed in a separate BF discussion on this one a couple of years ago and seems to have caught on somewhat.

I searched for the chapter and clicked on a link and the attached file appeared on my computer! I assume it's therefore OK to share it as anyone could do the same. It's a really badly written/edited summary of current knowledge.

Chapter 1 is a 6-page Introduction on "The Birds in the Neotropical Region" by Jos Luis Rangel-Salaza & Paula L. Enrquez (see https://link.springer.com/chapter/10...-319-57108-9_1). It includes a painting of a Striped Owl Asio clamator and a map of the Neotropical region.

Would anybody know what this journal currently does to satisfy Art. 8 of the Code?
(They once used to do what is explained at the bottom of the page [here], which resulted from a reading of Art. 8.6 that was effectively made incorrect by the e-only publication Amendment. I'm unclear what they do now.)

Well, one could have the impression that the Code of Zoological Nomenclature is irrelevant for ornithologists and editors of ornithological journals.

But Orn. Col. is not an e-only publication. A few printed copies will be made. But it is possible that the name is not available before that has happened.

TiF Update Marsh 15

Owls: Koparde et al. (2018) found that Heteroglaux is embedded in Athene. Thus the Forest Owlet becomes Athene blewitti. This causes a rearrangement of Athene.

As an aside, the IOC Version 8.2 (Draft) list section has the english and scientific names transposed
