Martin, you could have added that this book (Encyclopedia of the Philippines: Builders of the new Philippines) was published in 1936 ... which, of course, explain why the later part of the Life and Career of Colonel Gutierrez wasn't mentioned.

However; well found!

Bulletin 8: sic transit gloria mundi
alvaresi
• Mauricio Álvarez Rebolledo (fl. 2005) Colombian ornithologist, conservationist (Grallaria).
centralis
L. centralis, centrale central, in the middle < centrum middle point, centre < Gr. κεντρον kentron sharp point, stationary point of a pair of compasses. A good proportion of the names here refer to forms collected in "Central Africa," i.e. the eastern Congo and the Rift Valley lakes (e.g. subsp. Bradypterus baboecala, subsp. Chlorocichla flaviventris, subsp. Malimbus rubricollis, subsp. Sarothrura pulchra, subsp. Turdus pelios). Some further examples follow.
• "Dieselbe steht in Bezug auf Grösse zwischen cardinalis und massaicus in der Mitte." (Neumann 1900) (subsp. Dendropicos fuscescens).
• "Distribution. Endemic to Peru on east Andean slope from Río Huallaga through Pasco to Junín west of the Río Ene and north of the Río Mantaro ... The scientific name reflects the range of this species near the geographic center of Peru." (Hosner et al. in M. Isler et al. 2020) (Grallaria).
• "Intermediate in size between N. f. flavicollis (Vieill.) and N. f. melanoxantha (Lcht.)" (Hellmayr 1907) (subsp. Hemithraupis flavicollis).
• "These birds are intermediate between N. famosa and N. cupreonitens, and resemble birds labelled by Neumann in the Tring Museum with the MS. name Nectarinia famosa centralis" (van Someren 1916) (subsp. Nectarinia famosa).
• "RANGE. —Eastern part of the central Solomon Islands (Kulambangra, New Georgia, Vangunu, and Gatukai)." (Mayr 1932) (subsp. Pachycephala pectoralis).
• "zentralbrasilianischen Hochlandes (Matto-grosso. S. Goyaz. N.-São Paulo. W.-Minas Geraës)" (Hellmayr 1920) (subsp. Ramphocelus carbo).
• "the Central American form is named CICCABA VIRGATA CENTRALIS, subsp. nov. ... Chivela, Oaxaca, Mexico." (Griscom 1929) (subsp. Strix virgata).
• "Tang- (Dang-) la Range, Central Tibet, Tang-la Pass" (Sushkin 1926) (subsp. Tetraogallus tibetanus).
Collurisoma
(syn. Colluricincla † Grey Shrikethrush C. harmonica) Gr. κολλυριων kolluriōn thrush-sized bird mentioned by Aristotle and Hesychius, not further identified, but in ornithology considered to be a shrike; σωμα sōma, σωματος sōmatos body; perhaps a lapsus for Colluricincla Vigors & Horsfield, 1827; "the genus named Collurisoma, first pointed out by us in 1825 ... Typical Genera. Malaconotus | Thamnophilus | Prionops | ? | Platylophus ... This table may possibly appear very unsatisfactory to those who are accustomed to see "a place found for every thing," or who imagine it necessary that circles should be represented complete. It might, nevertheless, be reasonably supposed that Colurisoma would very well fill up the blank in our first column; and, indeed, many apparently strong and cogent reasons might be urged on the probability of such being its natural station; but we rather choose, for the present, to confess our doubts on the subject." (Swainson 1832).
Creadion
Gr. κρεαδιον kreadion morsel of meat < dim. κρεας kreas, κρεως kreōs flesh, meat (alluding to facial wattles).
• (syn. Anthochaera † Yellow Wattlebird A. paradoxa) "Creadion Vieillot, Analyse nouv. Ornith. p. 34, April 14th, 1816. Type (by subsequent designation, Lesson, Compl. de Œuvres Buffon, vol. ix. p. 7, 1837): Corvus paradoxus Latham, i.e. Daudin (cf. Austral Av. Rec. vol. iv. p. 169, 1922)." (Mathews, 1930, Syst. Av. Austral., II, 796) (see below).
• (syn. Philesturnus † South Island Saddleback P. carunculatus) "84. CRÉADION, Creadion. Sturnus, Merops, Gm. et Corvus, Lath. Bec fléchi en arc, comprimé, entier, étroit ou un peu déprimé à la pointe; mandibule inférieure, ou tête caronculée. 2 sections. Esp. Sturnus carunculatus. — Merops carunculatus. — Corvus paradoxus, Lath. ... Creadion [κρεαδιον, caruncula]." (Vieillot 1816); "Creadion Vieillot 1816, Analyse, p. 34. Type, by subsequent designation, Sturnus carunculatus Gmelin (Vigors and Horsfield, 1827, Trans. Linn. Soc. London, 15, 321)." (Amadon in Peters, 1962, XV, 158). Var. Creadio, Orcadion.
Mainatus
(syn. Gracula † Common Hill Mynah G. religiosa) French name Mainate for a mynah or grackle < Hindi names Mainā or Maynā for the Common Hill Mynah; "Le grand mainate (mainatus major) [?= Acridotheres grandis]. Il ressemble au précédent [Gracula] par sa forme et la variété de ses couleurs; mais il est plus grand; sa taille égale celle du choucas. Son bec et ses pieds sont jaunes, sans aucune teinte de rougeâtre. Cet oiseau se trouve dans l'île de Hainan en Asie. ... Les mainates se nourrissent de divers fruits et d'insectes. Leur douceur, leur familiarité, et surtout leur talent pour imiter en peu de temps le sifflet, le chant, la parole, et généralement tout ce qu'ils entendent, les sont rechercher des Indiens et des Chinois" (Vieillot 1817); "Genre MAINATE, Mainatus, Brisson. Sous-genre MINO, Mino, N. Le Mainate religieux (Gracula religiosa) formait le genre Mainatus dans l'ornithologie de Brisson, que Linné et Gmelin supprimèrent pour placer l'oiseau qui lui servait de type, dans le genre Gracula, à la suite des Oriolus." (Lesson 1827); "Mainatus Lesson, 1827, Bull. Sciences Naturelles et de Géologie (de Férussac, Bull. Universel des Sciences, sect. II), X, 158. Type by monotypy, Gracula religiosa Linnaeus." (mihi 2020).

Björn,
As indicated in #1, this thread just shows some of the major additions and amendments to my Key MS (which currently stands at 3,742 pages and over 1,400,000 words). There will be even more additions after BOWKey comes on line, as I am attempting to include type citation under each genus. Peters' Checklist has been extremely useful. Having just completed checking Mathews's Systema Avium Australasianarum, I have now made a start on W. Sclater's Systema Avium Aethiopicarum. I think errors and comments here should be retained to illustrate the rich tapestry of developments.
As ever your contributions, and those of the other Birdforum aficionados, are greatly appreciated. Everyone, stay safe and well.

Fair enough, it's your thread/Key/MS ... even if I don't see the reason for keeping account of every single typo [if so, my own MS would (awkwardly) include many hundreds of similar typos!]

However; back on topic ... regarding:

alvarezi as in:
• the Chamí antpitta Grallaria alvarezi CUERVO, et al. 2020 (here, p.13)

Quote:
• Mauricio Álvarez Rebolledo (fl. 2005) Colombian ornithologist, conservationist (Grallaria).
Ought to be the following guy: Professor Mauricio Álvarez Rebolledo, here, with some nice photos. Alt. here, the Professor himself (live and talking). Looks like he is still "fl.[-ourishing]", still going strong.

The pretty bird itself; here, or (running around); here alt. here.

Cheers!

Bulletin 9: eheu fugaces labuntur anni

BUCCANODON
(Lybiidae; † Yellow-spotted Barbet B. duchaillui) Genus Bucco Temminck, 1820, barbet (see Bucco); Gr. ανοδων anodōn toothless < negative prefix αν- an- ; οδους odous, οδοντος odontos tooth; "Barbatula formosa. ... Par son ensemble, cette espéce se rapprocherait du Laimodon niger; mais son bec sans dentelure le rapporte plûtot aux vrais Barbatula. Nous avions même songé à en faire un genre que nous n'adoptons pas à cause des rapports intimes qu'elle a avec ces derniers" (J. & E. Verreaux 1855); "a. Buccanodon. Verr. 511. Duchallui, Cass. ... Syn. Barbatula Duchallui, Cassin Proc. Acad. Philad. 1855, p. 324. — Buccanodon formosus, Verr. Rev. et Mag. 1855, p. 218, pl. 5. fig. bon." (Hartlaub 1857); "Buccanodon G. Gray, Cat. Gen. Subgen. Bds. Addenda, p. 1, 1855. Type by original designation, Buccanodon (i.e. Barbatula) formosus Verr. = Barbatula duchaillui Cass. This name is attributed by Gray and also Hartlaub to J. & E. Verreaux, Rev. Mag. Zool. 1855, p. 218, but the last-named did not mention the generic name in their paper." (W. Sclater, 1930, Syst. Av. Aethiop., II, Appendix, 859); "Buccanodon Hartlaub, Syst. Orn. Westafr., 1857, p. 171. Type, by monotypy, Barbatula duchaillui Cassin." (Peters, 1948, VI, 44).
Synon. Cladurus, Pogonites. N.B. I have yet to see Gray's 1855 Addenda (see Sclater's citation above). I am sure it has previously been located for this subforum, but cannot trace it. Any help would be appreciated and acknowledged.

Calyptrophorus
(syn. Paroaria † Red-crested Cardinal P. coronata) Gr. καλυπτρα kaluptra veil, head-dress, covering; -φορος -phoros -carrying < φερω pherō to carry; "Für Paroaria schlagen wir den Namen Calyptrophorus (καλυπτρα, Kappe, Schleier: φορεω, tragen) vor. Typus: C. cucullatus (Lath.)" (Cabanis 1847); "Calyptrophorus Cabanis, 1847, Archiv für Naturgeschichte, 13 (Band 1), p. 329. New name for Paroaria Bonaparte, considered barbarous; type, C. cucullatus (Lath.) = Loxia cucullata Latham, 1790 (not of Boddaert, 1783) = Loxia coronata Miller, 1776." (mihi 2020). Var. Calyphtrophorus.

Coliostruthus
(syn. Euplectes † Yellow-mantled Widowbird E. macroura macrocercus) Gr. κολοιος koloios jackdaw (i.e. black); στρουθος strouthos sparrow; "9. Ploceus [Coliostruthus] concolor. ... Nomen Chera, huic subdivisioni generis Plocei nuper impositum, prius datum est generi cuidam inter Noctuas. Succedit igitur nomen Rüppelii: "Coliuspasser", quod vero, ut hybridum, corrigendum et Coliostruthus scribendum. Forma castigata: Coliipasser, in Agassizii Nomenclatore Zool. (IV, 94) proposita, non tangit vitium principale: indolem hybridam; Colius enim est vox græca, ( κολοιος), Passer, latina." (Sundevall 1849). Var. Coliustruthus.

Galachrysia
(syn. Glareola † Little Pratincole G. lactea) Gr. γαλα gala, γαλακτος galaktos milk; χρυσειος khruseios golden < χρυσος khrusos gold; "*1966. Stiltia, Bp. — 1967. Glareola, L. — *1968. Galachrysia, Bp." (Bonaparte 1854 (nom. nud.)); "1845. GALACHRYSIA, Pr. B. 1854. (Glareola lactea, Temm.)" (G. Gray 1855); "47. Galachrysia, Bp. 121. lactea, Temm. (orientalis, Jerd. nec Leach.) 122. cinerea, Fraser" (Bonaparte 1856); "Galachrysia G. R. Gray, Cat. Gen. Subgen. Bds. p. 111, 1855 (ex Bonaparte, Ann. Sci. Nat (4) i., p. 148, 1854). Type by original designation, Glareola lactea Temm." (W. Sclater, 1924, Syst. Av. Aethiop., I, 140). Var. Calachrysia, Galactochrysea.

gallardoi / gallardoorum
Dr Ángel Gallardo (1867-1934) Argentinian civil engineer, politician, zoologist, and his grandson Prof. Dr José María Alfonso Félix Gallardo (1925-1994) Argentinian zoologist, both former Directors of Museo Argentino de Ciencias Naturales 'Bernadino Rivadavia' (Björn Bergenholtz and Laurent Raty in litt.). The eponym gallardoorum "of the Gallardos," appears to be a MS name, coined to reflect the dual dedication (Podiceps).

LEGUATIA
(?Phoenicopteridae; † Leguatia gigantea)
François Leguat (1637-1735) French explorer, naturalist on Rodrigues 1691; "GALLINULA (LEGUATIA) GIGANTEA. Syn. Le géant, LEGUAT, voyage, II, p. 72, c. fig. … … … DU QUESNE, apud LEGUAT I, 55 (?) Strausartiger Vogel, HAMEL, Bullet. phys.-math. Acad. St. Petersb., Vol. VII, No. 5 et 6. Flamingo, STRICKLAND, The Dodo, p. 60, (note). ... Vaderland: Mauritius, welligt ook Bourbon; toevallig eenmaal op Rodriguez aangetroffen." (Schlegel 1858); "Leguatia Schlegel, Versl. Med. Akad. Wetens. Amst. (Natuurk.) vii, p. 142, 1858. Type by monotypy, Leguatia gigantea Schleg. ... The Giant Rail." (W. Sclater, 1924, Syst. Av. Aethiop., I, 109); "Based only on the account of Leguat (1708), who almost certainly confused it with a flamingo Phoenicopterus sp." (Hume & Walters 2012).

Muscipeta [additional sub-entry]
• (syn. Onychorhynchus † Amazonian Royal Flycatcher O. coronatus) "TCHITREA MUTATA ... The generic name Terpsiphone, currently employed for the group of flycatchers to which the present species belongs, was originally proposed by Gloger as a substitute for Muscipeta Cuvier, because Muscipeta was considered "zu ähnlich und ganz gleich bedeutend mit Muscicapa;" and since the type of Muscipeta is the South American Todus regius Gmelin (= Muscivora regia auct.), it follows that the same species must be regarded as the type of Terpsiphone. This being the case, Terpsiphone can of course not be used to designate the Old World genus, for which the name Tchitrea Lesson then becomes available." (Oberholser 1900); "Muscipeta CUVIER, Règne Anim., I, p. 344, Dec. 1816—type by subs. desig. [?author] Todus regius GMELIN." (Cory & Hellmayr, 1927, Cat. Birds Americas, V, 258) (OD below).

PHONIPARA
(Thraupidae; † Cuban Grassquit P. canora) Gr. φωνη phōnē sound, tone; παρα para beside, near; "10. Phonipara, BP., comprenant six a sept petites espèces des Antilles et du Mexique, aussi pétulantes que jolies: son type est la Loxia canora, GM., à face et poitrine noires, à sourcils et gorge jaune d'or." (Bonaparte 1850 (Monogr. Loxiens, iii)); "5. PHONIPARA, Bp., pour les Loxia canora, Fringilla lepida, etc., des Antilles." (Bonaparte 1850 (Comptes Rend., 31, 424)); "*1023. Phonipara, Bp. (Fringilla et Spermophila, p. Gr.) Rostrum breve, valde compressum: pedes debiles: alae brevissimae: cauda modica, subemarginata. Amer. calid. 5. 1. LOXIA canora, Gm. ... 2. FRINGILLA lepida, L. ... 3. FRINGILLA bicolor, L. ... 4. FRINGILLA gutturalis, Licht. ... 5. LINARIA caniceps, Sagra ... Quid Spermophila anoxantha et Sperm. adoxa, Gosse, Ill. Jam. tab. 63, et 65?" (Bonaparte 1850 (Conspectus, 494)); "Phonipara Bonaparte, Consp. Gen. Av., 1, (2), p. 494, end of 1850—type, by subs. desig. (Gray, Cat. Gen. Subgen. Bds., p. 82, 1855), Loxia canora Gmelin." (Hellmayr, 1938, Cat. Birds Americas, Pt. XI, 114).

PYRRHULAGRA
(Thraupidae; † Puerto Rican Bullfinch P. portoricensis) Portmanteau of genera Pyrrhula Brisson 1760, bullfinch, and Tanagra Linnaeus, 1766, tanager; "*1021. Pyrrhulagra, Schiff, Mus. Senkenb. (Spermophila, Pitylus, et Tanagrella, p. Gr. - Loxia, Fringilla et Tanagra Auct.). Amer. mer. 4. 1. LOXIA portoricensis, Daud. ... 2. LOXIA violacea, L. ... 3. TANAGRA ruficollis, Gm. ... 4. FRINGILLA noctis, L." (Bonaparte 1850). The correct application of this generic name must be investigated. According to Hellmayr 1938, Cat. Birds Americas, Pt. XI, p. 159, the type of Pyrrhulagra by subsequent designation (G. Gray 1855, Cat. Gen. Subgen. Bds., p. 75) is Loxia portoricensis Daudin; but Bonaparte 1850, Monogr. Loxiens, p. v, writes, "avec le Dr. SCHIFF de Francfort nous appellons Pyrrhulagra un nouveau genre dont Fringilla noctis, L. est le type, et qui contient deux ou trois espèces semblables par la couleur si non par le bec." Fringilla noctis Linnaeus, 1766, is the type of Loxigilla Lesson, 1831, of which Pyrrhulagra Bonaparte, 1850, becomes a synonym. If Loxia portoricensis Daudin, 1800, is to be separated generically, it will need a new name.
Synon. Melopyrrha.

James, I gave it a (somewhat serious) try, but sorry, neither I can find Gray's Addenda (alt. Addendum or Errata) anywhere online ...

Though I found one thing that (maybe) could be of interest; Jules Verreaux's first use of Buccanodon (that I can find, of course), from 1859 (here), where he himself wrote it as "BUCCANODON, J. Verr." (and, as such, claiming the Authorship!?), but where he published it prior to that I cannot say.

The Plate of (J. et E.) Verreaux's "Barbatula formosa", from 1855 (here, text on p.218), but (like stated in the quote above) there's no Buccanodon in sight in this Work.

Sclater's Systema avium aethiopicarum. A systematic ... from 1924-1930 (in two volumes, both; here).

Richmond's (1927) foot-note here, indicate that we probably ought to look for an Edition of "A List of ..." [Genera of Birds?], by Gray (1840, alt. in a later Edition), thus possibly not his "Catalogue of ... (Genera and Subgenera of Birds)"!?! Or is this simply a mix-up of the subtitle of the Catalogue itself (here)? Compare the Title page versus page 1 ... ?

However, no trace of Buccanodon in the journal "L'Ateneo Italiano", as suggested as a possibility by Richmond, at least not in the 1854 (vol.2) issue here, the closest one is Bonaparte's use of Bucconidi (but not as Genera), on pp.380-381; here. Similar to Gray's (subfamily) Bucconinæ, from 1849 (here), or here (about 1851). Also see the Proceedings of the Linnean Society of London, 1872 (here).

For completeness sake (adding nothing); the "recent notice ... published in the 'Annals and Magazine of Natural History' for December 1855" [Second Series, No.96], that Gray found so (very) unjust, full of incorrectness and erroneous conclusions, that he simply had to respond and defend himself, and his views/work (here).

Though; IF the addenda were, as Mark put it; "a response" to this "review" it could hardly have been published in 1855, could it? (if ever published/printed?)

Either way, it would (of course) help to see Sclater's reproduction (in Ibis, 1929), to find out in what way it was reproduced. If it's a photo, or simply a transcript of Gray's additional List. If the latter was typed, or handwritten ...

Well, that's about all I found (and all I have to say in this certain topic ).

Hopefully of some use.

Björn

PS. Though I still don't understand why Gray would change/alter Temminck's Bucco, into Bucca... ?!?
Could we (again) possibly be looking at a case of a typo (or Printer's error)?

Björn,
Buccanodon. I agree that only sight of the original or Sclater's reproduction/copy of Gray's 1855 Addenda will resolve this. I have let my BOU membership lapse, so am no longer able to access the 1929 Ibis (those on BHL only cover the years to 1922). Gray and Hartlaub would have used Buccanodon instead of Bucconodon purely for euphony. All serenity.

In Dubois's Synopsis avium (1899-1902) we find it as "Buccanodon, Verr. (1857)", here. If so Gray most certainly would be earlier (if published, in 1855, of course) ...

Hopefully someone with access to The Ibis (1929) will turn up.

We'll see. Fingers crossed.

Are you sure that that this is a re-print Bibliographical Note on George Gray's ‘Catalogue of the Genera and Subgenera of Birds.’?

Martin has been kind enough to send me a copy of Sclater's article on G. Gray's 1855 Addenda. My Key MS entry for Buccanodon now includes, ""1532 a. BUCCANODON, Verr. 1855. (Buccanodon formosus, Verr.)" (G. Gray 1855 (reprint 1929)) (Martin Schneider in litt.)"" Thank you Martin.

Thank yopu Martin for solving this situation.
A few years later John Edward Gray quotes Bonaparte addressing the B formosus or DuChaillui issue in a footnote in an Annals and Magazine of Natural History.

Simply a clarification

Mark, there's no footnote on "Page 77", nothing from Bonaparte, it's not even about birds.

It's far more easy to find on p.61

PS. And thanks Martin; for showing us Gray's "BUCCANODON, Verr. 1855. ..."

Soll Reichenbach's Name "schwarz oder dunkel gegürtet" bedeuten, so wäre er richtiger Melanzona (von μελανζωνος) zu schreiben.

Bulletin 12: Thanks to Laurent for this fascinating group of nomina oblita (see Subforum 'Names lacking in the Key,' # 262).

Andrornis
(syn. Periparus † Coal Tit P. ater) Gr. ανηρ anēr, ανδρος andros man; ορνις ornis bird (doubtless an allusion to the fearless and familiar behaviour of these small birds); "Finden sich zwei Arten in einer und derselben Gegend nistend, wie z. B. unser Passer domesticus und montanus, unsere Ruticilla phoenicura und R. tithys (Tithys atrata, Gmel.), unser Parus ater (Andrornis) und Parus major L., so kann man mit Sicherheit annehmen, dass sie zwei verschiedenen Subgenera angehören." (Kaup in Röder 1877) (Laurent Raty in litt.); "Andrornis Kaup in Röder, 1877, Grundriss Syst. Nat. Kaup, p. 123. Type by monotypy, Parus ater." (mihi 2020).

Clipeopasser
(syn. Passer † Cape Sparrow P. melanurus) L. clipeus, clupeus or clypeus round shield (in allusion to black face and breast markings); passer, passeris sparrow; "In keine der genannten Gruppen passt der sehr abweichende P. arcuatus, Gmel., mit schwarzem Kopf, Gesicht und Kehle, bei dem die Wangen und zum Theil die Kehle mit einem breiten weissen Streifen begränzt sind. Man kann ihn nebst Verwandten Clipeopasser nennen." (Kaup in Röder 1877) (Laurent Raty in litt.); "Clipeopasser Kaup in Röder, 1877, Grundriss Syst. Nat. Kaup, p. 122. Type by monotypy, Fringilla arcuata Gmelin, 1788 = Loxia melanura Statius Müller, 1776." (mihi 2020).

Lebrornis
(syn. Philepitta † Schlegel's Asity P. schlegelii) Gr. λεβηρις lebēris bird of ill omen; ορνις ornis bird; "So bilden z. B. die zwei Arten von Philepitta jala und Schlegelii, Poll von Madagaskar zwei verschiedene Genera, die sich durch verschieden gebildete Gesichtsklarunkeln und namentlich durch ganz verschiedenes Kleid sehr wesentlich unterscheiden. Ich nenne letztere Art Lebrornis Schlegelii." (Kaup in Röder 1877) (Laurent Raty in litt.); "Lebrornis Kaup in Röder, 1877, Grundriss Syst. Nat. Kaup, p. 17. Type by monotypy, Lebrornis Schlegelii Kaup." (mihi 2020).

Lophocua
(syn. Coua † Crested Coua C. cristata) Gr. λοφος lophos crest; genus Cua auct. = Coua Schinz, coua; "Alle Genera leben in Madagascar. Cabanis und Heine haben bereits die Glaucococcyx und Cochlothraustes von dem Levaillant'schen Genus Cocca geschieden, allein die Trennungen müssen noch weiter gehen. Ich behalte nur für Gigas, Bodd und Verwandte den Namen Cua und nenne die cristata - Lophocua." (Kaup in Röder 1877) (Laurent Raty in litt.); "Lophocua Kaup in Röder, 1877, Grundriss Syst. Nat. Kaup, p. 114. Type by monotypy, Lophocua cristata Kaup." (mihi 2020).

Poliopicus
(syn. Picus † Grey-faced Woodpecker P. canus) Gr. πολιος polios grey; genus Picus Linnaeus, 1758, woodpecker; "So z. B. bildet Gecinus canus Gmel. ein eigenes Subgenus, das auch in seiner Lebensart von G. viridis mit den Arten Awokera, Vaillantii abweicht. Sie unterscheiden sich durch geringere Grösse, etwas bushige Bedeckung der Nasenlöcher, schmäleren Schnurrbart und verhältnissmässig langere Kinnsymphyse. Ich nenne dieselben Poliopicus." (Kaup in Röder 1877) (Laurent Raty in litt.); "Poliopicus Kaup in Röder, 1877, Grundriss Syst. Nat. Kaup, p. 116. Type by monotypy, Gecinus canus Gmel." (mihi 2020).

Pyrgitulus
(syn. Passer † Tree Sparrow P. montanus) Dim. < genus Pyrgita Cuvier 1816, sparrow (cf. Gr. πυργιτης purgitēs sparrow); "Zu dem Passer montanus (Pyrgitulus) gehören alle, bei welchen Männchen wie Weibchen eine ähnliche Kehl- und Gesichtszeichnung aufweisen." (Kaup in Röder 1877) (Laurent Raty in litt.); "Pyrgitulus Kaup in Röder, 1877, Grundriss Syst. Nat. Kaup, p. 122. Type by monotypy, Passer montanus." (mihi 2020).

Rubicundulus
(syn. Passer † Russet Sparrow P. rutilans) L. rubicundulus somewhat ruddy < dim. rubicundus red < rubere to be red < ruber ruddy; "Die Arten rutilans Temm. pl. col. 588.2 und cinnamomeus Gould, bei welchen die Männchen einen schmalen schwarzen Kehlfleck besitzen, welcher den Weibchen fehlt, bilden ebenfalls eine kleine Gruppe, die man weder zu Passer noch zu Pyrgitulus stellen kann. Man kann sie Rothsperlinge Rubicundulus nennen." (Kaup in Röder 1877) (Laurent Raty in litt.); "Rubicundulus Kaup in Röder, 1877, Grundriss Syst. Nat. Kaup, p. 122. Type by virtual monotypy, Passer rutilans Temminck." (mihi 2020).

Tachypteryx
(syn. Artamus † Little Woodswallow A. minor) Gr. ταχυς takhus fast; πτερυξ pterux, πτερυγος pterugos wing (cf. ταχυπτερος takhupteros swift-winged); "Das Genus Artamus Viell. bildet die zweite Subfamilie Artaminae, von welchen das Genus Tachypteryx (Artamus minor. V.) die Grundform der zweiten Subfamilie, der zweiten Familie und der zweiten Horde ist." (Kaup in Röder 1877) (Laurent Raty in litt.); "Tachypteryx Kaup in Röder, 1877, Grundriss Syst. Nat. Kaup, p. 127. Type by monotypy, Artamus minor Vieillot." (mihi 2020).

Tithys
(syn. Phoenicurus † Black Redstart P. ochruros gibraltariensis) Late Gr. τιτις titis, τιτιδος titidos small chirping bird mentioned by Photios (cf. specific name Motacilla titys Linnaeus, 1758); "Finden sich zwei Arten in einer und derselben Gegend nistend, wie z. B. unser Passer domesticus und montanus, unsere Ruticilla phoenicura und R. tithys (Tithys atrata, Gmel.), unser Parus ater (Andrornis) und Parus major L., so kann man mit Sicherheit annehmen, dass sie zwei verschiedenen Subgenera angehören." (Kaup in Röder 1877) (Laurent Raty in litt.); "Tithys Kaup in Röder, 1877, Grundriss Syst. Nat. Kaup, p. 123. Type by tautonymy, Tithys atrata Gmel. = Ruticilla tithys auct. = Motacilla gibraltariensis Gmelin." (mihi 2020).

Bulletin 13: A thousand shall fall at thy side and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

Ampelis [new sub-entry]
• (syn. Cotinga † Purple-breasted Cotinga C. cotinga) "108. AMPELIS. Rostrum rectum, convexum: Mandibula superiore longiore, subincurvata, utrinque emarginata. Lingua acuta, cartilaginea, bifida. Garrulus. 1. ... Pompadora. 2. ... carnifex. 3. ... Cotinga. 4. ... Maynana. 5. ... cayana. 6. ... tersa. 7." (Linnaeus 1766); "Ampelis LINNAEUS, Syst. Nat., 12th ed., I, p. 297, 1766—type by subs. desig. (Gray, List Gen. Birds, p. 34, 1840) Ampelis cotinga LINNAEUS." (Hellmayr, 1929, Cat. Birds Americas, Pt. VI, 104).

Amphibolura [upgraded]
(syn. Phibalura † Swallow-tailed Cotinga P. flavirostris) Gr. αμφιβολος amphibolos double-pointed < αμφιβαλλω amphiballō to hit on both sides; ουρα oura tail; "Gen. Amphibolura (Vieill.). Phibalura!? Vieill. 1816. Chelidis Gloger 1827. Der Name Phibalura hat keinen Sinn und wurde deshalb von Gloger in Chelidis umgeändert, wobei aber unbeachtet blieb, dass Chelidis mit Chelidon Boie 1822 collidirt. Die divergirende Form der Schwanzfedern lässt vermuthen, dass Vieillot vielleicht "αμφιβολος" im Sinne hatte, wenigstens ist der so abgeänderte Name bezeichnend für die Gattung. Typus: A. flavirostris (Vieill.)." (Cabanis 1847); "Amphibolura CABANIS, Arch. Naturg., 13, (1), p. 233, 1847— new name for Phibalura VIEILLOT." (Hellmayr, 1929, Cat. Birds Americas, Pt. VI, 97).

Averano [updated]
• (syn. Procnias † White Bellbird P. albus) "Catalogue des oiseaux composant le cabinet de M. le Comte de Riocour ... Vieillot described many new species from this collection, and it is possible that he was involved in the preparation of this catalogue, but the authorship is not given. The generic name Averano appears herein for the first time, with inclusion of "A. caronculatus" and "nudi-collis." As neither of these species was included in that genus as proposed by Lesson in his "Traite d'Ornithologie," 1830-31, it becomes necessary to select a type species for the genus as here proposed, and accordingly I designate A. caronculatus [= Procnias alba (Hermann)] as such." (J. T. Zimmer 1926); "Averano Anonymous, Cat. Coll. Cabinet Riocour, p. 17, 1829—type by subs. desig. (ZIMMER, Field Mus. Nat. Hist., Zool. Ser, 16, p. 12, 1926) "Averano caronculatus" = Ampelis alba HERMANN." (Hellmayr, 1929, Cat. Birds Americas, Pt. VI, 237).
• (syn. Procnias † Bearded Bellbird P. averano carnobarba) "CXXIII.e Genre. AVÉRANO; Averano. Ampelis, Vieill.; Casmarhynchos, Temm. ... Ce genre ne comprend qu'une espèce, qui est l'averano carnobarba; l'ampelis variegata, Gm.; l'ampelis averano, Vieill., Gal., pl. 117. Le Procnias melanocephalus, Wied., It., t. I, p. 26; Casmarynchos variegata, Temm., pl. 51; Cotinga, nov. sp., Cuv. Règne an., pl. 4, fig. 4. ... Son nom d'averano est contracté des mots portugais ave de verano, oiseau d'été, qui lui appliquent les Créoles; c'est le guira-punga de Marcgrave" (Lesson 1830) (see averano); "Averano Lesson, 1830, Traité d'Ornithologie, p. 364. Type by monotypy Averano carnobarba Lesson, 1830" (mihi 2020).

catamenia [new entry]
Gr. καταμηνια katamēnia menstrual, menstruous < κατα kata in relation to; μην mēn, μηνος mēnos month.
• "I cannot make out Calliste catamenia Bonaparte (Rev. Mag. Zool., (2), 3, p. 139, 1851), described as "Viridis, vertice crissoque rufescentibus." No locality is indicated. Although the type is credited to the Leiden Museum, the name has never been quoted again in literature. According to G. C. W. Junge (in litt.), the specimen cannot be found in the collections at Leiden." (Hellmayr, 1936, Cat. Birds Americas, Pt. IX, 81) (unident.; ?syn. Tangara sp.).

Cotyle [upgraded]
(syn. Riparia † Sand Martin R. riparia) Gr. κωτιλας kōtilas, κωτιλαδος kōtilados swallow < κωτιλος kōtilos twittering < κωτιλλω kōtillō to chatter (cf. κοτυλη kotulē cup, hollow); "Cotyle: Hir. fucata Azz. Tem. col. 161; rupestris Gm.; riparia Lin. u. a." (Boie 1826); "In 1822 F. Boie (Isis, p. 550) proposed Cotile as a generic name for Hirundo riparia, L. But, unfortunately, in 1826 (Isis, p. 971) he spelt the name Cotyle; although in the same column we find "Cynnyris" and "Aegythalus," it is only the first misprint that has bred lasting mischief. ... In reality κωτιλας is a name used by Anacreon (99) for the Swallow; and κωτιλος is a familiar classical adjective, meaning "prattling," as κωτιλλειν means "to prattle." When Boie first wrote COTILE he undoubtedly had in his mind this idea of "twittering;" and all the confusion about a "cup" has arisen from a subsequent misprint" (Wharton 1879); "Cotyle Boie, Isis, 1826, (2), p. 971—type, by subs. desig. (Gray, List Gen. Bds., p. 9, 1840), Hirundo riparia Linnaeus." (Hellmayr, 1935, Cat. Birds Americas, Pt. VIII, 63).

Culicivora [new sub-entry]
• (syn. Polioptila † Tropical Gnatcatcher P. plumbea atricapilla) "CULICIVORA, Sw. Bill somewhat lengthened; the base depressed; the sides compressed; the culmen arched from the base; the tip notched. Rictus with distinct bristles. Wings very short; the first two quills only equally graduated. Tail slender, graduated, and generally lengthened. Tarsus long, slender. Inner toe shortest. Claws small, fully curved. America only. C. atricapilla. Zool. Ill.ii.pl. 57." (Swainson 1837); "Culicivora (not of Swainson, 1827) Swainson, Classif. Bds., 2, p. 243, 1837—type, by monotypy, Culicivora atricapilla Swainson" (Hellmayr, 1934, Cat. Birds Americas, Pt. VII, 485).

Cyanurus [updated]
Gr. κυανος kuanos dark-blue; ουρα oura tail.
• (syn. Cyanocorax † White-throated Magpie Jay C. formosus) "817. Cyanurus, Bp. ex Sw. (Cyanocorax, p. Boie. - Calocitta hinc Psilorhinus, p. Gr.) Rostrum nigrum: cauda longissima. Am. s. As. or. 4. a. Americani. 1. PICA bullocki, Wagl. 1827. (miles, Licht. - formosa, Sw. 1827. - gubernatrix, Temm. - Psilorhinus gubernatrix, Gr.) Pl. col. 436. ex Mexico or. Vera-Cruz. ... 2. PICA colliei, Vig. (Garrulus ultramarinus, Aud. nec Bp. G. bullocki, Aud. nec Wagl. - G. burneti, errore burnetti, berneti et bennetti, J. Gr. - Psilorhinus bullocki, Gr.) Zool. Beach. Voy. t. 7. - Aud. Am. t. 96. - Quarto edit. t. 229. ex Mexico occ. California." (Bonaparte 1850); "Cyanurus (not of Swainson, 1832) Bonaparte, Consp. Gen. Av., 1, p. 380, 1850—type, by subs. desig. (Sharpe, Cat. Bds. Brit. Mus., 3, p. 88, 1877), Pica formosa Swainson." (Hellmayr, 1934, Cat. Birds Americas, Pt. VII, 11).
• (syn. Cyanocorax † Plush-crested Jay C. chrysops) "Genus, CYANURUS. ... Examples. - 1. C. cristatus. 2. Stelleri. 3. sordidus, Sw. 4. Floridanus, BON. 5. coronatus, Sw. Syn. 6. cyanopogon (Pl. col. 169). 7. pileatus (Ill. 58). 8. azureus (Ill. 168) 9. formosus (Pica formosa, Sw. Syn.) 10. cristatellus (Pl. col. 193), &c. OBS. - This group is distinguished from the European and North Asiatic Jays by the upper mandible not being abruptly bent at the tip, or very distinctly notched, by the under being weaker, and by the powerful structure of the feet. The two outer toes also are almost equal. The first three species are aberrant, connecting this and the last group [Dysornithia]. The typical species are found only in the tropics of America and India" (Swainson 1832); "The genera Psilorhinus and Cissa, with Cyanocorax of South America, form a little group by themselves; and I consider that Mr. Strickland was quite justified in separating from the last the blue Jays of North America, which constitute his Cyanocitta, An. and Mag. Nat. Hist. 1845, p. 260; but as Corvus cristatus, Lin. is the type of Mr. Swainson's Cyanurus, I conceive that this must take precedence of Cyanocitta, Strickland" (Blyth 1846); "The type of the genus Cyanocitta of Strickland is Garrulus cristatus, Linn. as stated in precise terms by the founder of the genus ... Again, the type of Cyanurus, Sw., is not Garrulus cristatus ... This error was caused by Mr. G. R. Gray's [1855] unauthorized assumption that the first species in any author's list must necessarily be his type. But Swainson himself tells us that the first three species which he mentions (i.e. C. cristatus, C. stelleri, and C. sordidus) are "aberrant," and that the "typical" species are only found in the "tropics of America and India." It is obvious therefore that Cyanurus, Sw. (1831) = Cyanocorax, Boie (1826) as stated by Strickland l.s.c., and that Cyanocitta is the proper generic name for the "Blue Jays" of America" (P. Sclater & Salvin 1876); "Cyanurus Swainson, in Richardson, Faun. Bor.-Amer., 2, p. 495, Feb., 1832— no type designated. 2 ... 2 No valid type appears to have been designated for this genus. ... Though, by common consent, Cyanurus has been regarded as synonymous with Cyanocorax, it seems advisable to formally propose a genotype to set this name at rest, and we suggest as such Corvus pileatus "Ill." = Pica chrysops Vieillot." (Hellmayr, 1934, Cat. Birds Americas, Pt. VII, 17).

Empidochanes [new sub-entry]
• (syn. Cnemotriccus † Fuscous Flycatcher C. fuscatus) "67. EMPIDOCHANES*. Empidochanes, Scl. Cat. A. B. p. 228 (1862) . . . . .Type. E. fringillaris. Empidochanes is also not far removed from Myiobius, but the bill is larger and longer, and the rictal bristles are not so much developed. ... 1. Empidochanes fuscatus. ... 2. Empidochanes fringillaris. ... 3. Empidochanes arenaceus. ... 4. Empidochanes pœcilurus. ... 5. Empidochanes salvini, sp. nov." (P. Scl;ater 1888); "Empidochanes SCLATER (not of SCLATER 1862), Cat. Birds Brit. Mus., 14, p. 216, 1888— type Empidochanes fringillaris PELZELN = Muscipeta fuscata WIED." (Hellmayr, 1927, Cat. Birds Americas, V, 221).

imperialis [new sub-entry]
• Rudolf II Holy Roman Emperor (1552-1612; reigned 1576-1611 (deposed)) King of Hungary and Croatia, King of Bohemia, Archduke of Austria, patron of the arts and the occult (‡syn. Aphanapteryx bonasia).

Mimetes [new sub-entry]
• (syn. Mimus † Northern Mockingbird M. polyglottos) "Mehrere genießen, unter den besonderen Namen Spottdrosseln oder Spottvögel, (Mimetes, Mimus!) noch eines vorzüglichen Rufes wegen der, meist bewunderungswürdigen Fertigkeit, mit welcher sie auch viele Lieder anderer Vögel wiedergeben, und selbst die Laute mancher unbefiederten Geschöpfe nachahmen: gleich als wollten sie ein neckerhaftes Gespött mit denselben treiben. Vorzugsweise berühmt ist in beiden Beziehungen jene nordamerikanische Art, welche darum auch vorzugsweise die Bezeichnung Spott- oder vielstimmige Drossel führt. (Turdus polyglottus.)" (Gloger 1841); "Mimetes [(not Eschscholtz, 1818, nor King, 1826)] Gloger, Hand- und Hilfsbuch Naturg., 1, p. 303, 1841—new name for Mimus Boie." (Hellmayr, 1934, Cat. Birds Americas, Pt. VII, 306).

montanei [new entry]
Prof. Julio Cesar Montané Martí (1927-2013) Chilean archaeologist (Fred Ruhe in litt.) (‡ Fulica).

Myiopatis [new sub-entry]
• (syn. Phaeomyias † Mouse-coloured Tyrannelet P. murina incomta) "47. MYIOPATIS*. Myiopatis, Cab. et Hein. Mus. Hein. ii. p. 58 . . . .Type. M. semifusca. These birds, which I have previously annexed to Phyllomyias, certainly differ in the longer and more compressed bill, and had better, perhaps, be kept apart. ... 1. Myiopatis semifusca. Phyllomyias semifusca, Scl. ... Platyrhynchus murinus, Spix ... Myiopatis incanescens, Cab. et Hein. ... 2. Myiopatis tumbezana. Phyllomyias tumbezana, Tacz." (P. Sclater 1888); "Myiopatis P. Sclater, 1888, Cat. Birds British Mus., XIV, p. 123. Type, by original designation, Phyllomyias semifusca P. Sclater, 1862 = Elainea incomta Cabanis & Heine, 1859." (mihi 2020).

Oxyrhamphus [upgraded]
(syn. Oxyruncus † Sharpbill O. cristatus) Gr. οξυς oxus sharp; ῥαμφος rhamphos bill; "The genus Oxyrhynchus, Tem. [1822], is a difficult group to classify, but its structure and style of colouring show that it has no affinity to the Certhiadæ. I am most disposed to place it in or near the Icterinæ. The name Oxyrhynchus was given by Leach to a genus of fish, in 1818. (See Tuckey's Congo, p. 410.) Ichthyologists must decide whether that genus can stand; but if so, of course a new name must be found for the bird before us, which might be called Oxyrhamphus." (Strickland 1841); "Oxyrhamphus STRICKLAND, Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist., 6, p. 420, 1841—new name for Oxyrhynchus TEMMINCK, preoccupied." (Hellmayr, 1929, Cat. Birds Americas, Pt. VI, 1). Var. Oxyramphus.

Pachyrhynchus [sub-entry updated]
• (syn. Pachyramphus † Green-backed Becard P. viridis) "GENUS 1. PACHYRHYNCHUS. Muscicapas inter, Lanios Fringillasque intermedius, solitarie ac tranquille arboribus minus altis insidens, insectis victitans; capite crasso; rostro vix brevi, crasso, alto, rotundato-convexo, ad frontem largo, apice dentato, vibrissis mastacalibus raris; lingua apice fissa; digito laterali externo basi connato. ...

Type by subsequent designation (G. Gray, 1840, List Genera Birds, p. 31), Psaris Cuvierii Swainson, 1821 = Tityra viridis Vieillot, 1816." (mihi 2020).

Schiffornis [new sub-entry]
• (syn. Schiffornis † Varzea Schiffornis S. major) "GENRE SCHIFFORNIS. — Schiffornis (Pr. Ch. Bonaparte). SCHIFFORNIS GÉANT. — Schiffornis major (Pr. Ch. Bonap., Ateneo Italiano, Ag. 1854). (PLANCHE XVIII, fig. 2.) Sch. supra cinereo-brunnescens; tergo alisque brunneo-rufescentibus; subtus rufo-cinnamomeo; uropygio rectricibusque concoloribus. Rostro pedibusque nigris." (des Murs 1856); "Schiffornis (not of BONAPARTE, 1854) DES MURS in CASTELNAU, Expéd. Amér. Sud, Ois., livr. 18, p. 66— June, 1856— type by monotypy Schiffornis major DES MURS. ... Schiffornis major BONAPARTE (Ateneo Italiano, 2, No. 11, p. 314, 1854; Consp. Voluc. Anisod., p. 4, 1854) is a nomen nudum." (Hellmayr, 1929, Cat. Birds Americas, Pt. VI, 77).

Saxilauda [new sub-entry]
• (syn. Geositta † Rufous-banded Miner G. rufipennis fasciata) "Wir besitzen den von uns Eingangs erwähnten chilenischen Vogel schon seit einer längeren Reihe von Jahren und hatten denselben ebenfalls als Typus einer neuen Gattung betrachtet, welcher wir den Namen Saxilauda — wegen der Aehnlichkeit mit Saxicola und Alauda — beilegten, und wonach unser Vogel als Saxilauda fasciata Nob. im hiesigen National-Museum aufgestellt war." (Philippi & Landbeck 1865); "Saxilauda PHILIPPI and LANDBECK, Arch. Naturg., 31 (1), p. 67 (in text), 1865— type [by orig. desig.] Geobamon fasciata PHILIPPI and LANDBECK." (Hellmayr, 1925, Cat. Birds Americas, Pt. IV, 2).

Sialis [upgraded]
(syn. Sialia † Eastern Bluebird S. sialis) Gr. σιαλις sialis, σιαλιδος sialidos unidentified bird, so-called from its cry; "Ces deux circonstances ayant également lieu chez le Rouge-gorge bleu de l'Amérique septentrionale (Sylvia sialis), et s'y trouvant réunies à d'autres caractères de forme et d'habitudes qui avaient engagé Vieillot à en faire un Motteux, sous le nom de Ænanthe sialis, j'ai pensé que ce nouveau genres Sialis (Sialia des Anglais) devait également figurer dans ma cinquième famille. Wilson et Vieillot disent positivement que l'espèce type, Sylvia sialis, niche dans des arbres creux et y pond des œufs d'un bleu pâle." (de La Fresnaye 1839); "Sialis (not of Latreille, 1803) Lafresnaye, Rev. Zool., 2, p. 162, 1839— type, by monotypy, Motacilla sialis Linnaeus." (Hellmayr, 1934, Cat. Birds Americas, Pt. VII, 477).

Taenioptera [updated]
(syn. Xolmis † Grey Monjita X. cinereus) Specific name Muscicapa taenioptera Bonaparte, 1825 (= syn. Xolmis cinereus); "MUSCICAPA tænioptera, Nob. ... The conjectures of Vieillot have proved correct, at least in regard to this species; which is a MUSCICAPA of our classification, but a TYRANNUS of his: a peculiar subgenus might be instituted for it under the name of the species, which we have for that reason compounded from the Greek. This subgenus should be characterized principally by long and powerful wings, reaching almost to the tip of the tail, a somewhat more robust and elongated bill, and much stouter and longer feet. It is most probable that the five other Pepoazas of d'Azara will also prove to belong to this subgenus" (Bonaparte 1825); "Si dica lo stesso della mia Muscicapa taenioptera (tipo del mio sottogenere di questo nome) che dovrà chiamarsi Muscicapa polyglotta, Licht, avendo la priorità questo nome tratto dall' analogia delle piume col Turdus polyglottus; si vede anch' essa figurata da Spix. S'aggiungano come specie del mio gruppo Taenioptera le Muscicapae vittigera, velata (Spix 22.), dominicana di Lichtenstein ec." (Bonaparte 1830); "Taenioptera BONAPARTE c, Ann. Stor. Nat. Bologna, 4, p. 194, Nov. 1830—type by orig. desig. Muscicapa taenioptera BONAPARTE = Tyrannus cinereus VIEILLOT. ... c Although universally quoted from 1825, this name does not occur in Bonaparte's paper in Journ. Ac. Nat. Sci. Phila., 4, p. 370-387, and was obviously not proposed in a generic sense until 1830." (Hellmayr, 1927, Cat. Birds Americas, Pt. V, 10).
