McLeannan's Ocellated Antbird
Here´s a short question regarding ...
meleannani/mcleannani as in:
• Ocellated Antbird Phaenostictus mcleannani LAWRENCE 1861 (here) as "Phlogopsis MeLeannani" [sic]*
*Obviously a Printers error, as the sentence above it tells us: "... obtained by Mr. J. McLeannan, ...". In Panama. And further down:
In today's HBW Alive Key this Eponym is explained as:
This far nothing contradicting or odd, but according the local newspaper The Panama American 29th of September 1958, in a piece on early Panamanian ornithology (here, p.10, mid-page, to the right) he was: "... a Scotsman named McLeannan"!
Anyone know the true origin, or anything additonal, on this guy?
Was he really "US" or maybe Scottish (alt. of Scottish Heritage) ...?
