Anthracothorax viridigula

I have a question about Anthracothorax viridigula . We can find the OD here. Pieter Boddaert refered to Buffon here and Latham here. But what is...

Boddaert is messy and often not easy to understand.

The small "o"'s that are everywhere in his entries (but easily overlooked) mean "not present in the classification of this author". Thus, here:
Quote:
671. 1.
= the bird is that which is on Planche enluminée #671, fig. 1 https://biodiversitylibrary.org/page/35219167
Quote:
Colibri a cravatte verte, Buff. XI. p. 77.
= what Buffon made of this bird -- https://books.google.com/books?id=iwMGAAAAQAAJ&pg=PA77 (Boddaert used the in-8° edition of Buffon, as opposed to Gmelin who used the in-4°, so they always have different volume/page numbers.)
Quote:
Mellisuga Briss. Ornith. III. o.
= that bird falls in genus Mellisuga in Brisson's classification, which Brisson addressed in vol. 3 of his work https://biodiversitylibrary.org/page/35953821, but Brisson did not list it.
Quote:
Trochilus viridigula, Linn. Gen. 66. o.
= the species name according to Boddaert in Linnaeus' classification; the bird falls in genus #66 in this classification (12th edition: https://biodiversitylibrary.org/page/42946385 - this is indeed Trochilus), but Linnaeus did not list it. The species name was coined by Boddaert himself.
Quote:
green throated Humming bird, Lath. birds 1. p. 755. 14.
= what Latham made of this bird -- https://biodiversitylibrary.org/page/33727409

Martin, I assume Boodaert's reference (and OD) of "Trochilus viridigula, LINN. Gen. 66", in the 1783 work, aims only at the Generic name Trochilus (Richmond card, here), as in; Genera No. 66. TROCHILUS (in Linnaeus' Systema naturae, 12th Ed., 1766 (here), i.e. No. 60 (in Linnaeus' Systema naturae, 10th Ed., 1758 (here alt. here).

Compare with the preceding species in Boddaert's 1783 work "Certhia violacea, LINN. Gen. 65.", that takes us to Genera No. 65 CERTHIA, on p.184, in the same work/edition of Linnaeus (1766).

If not; I have no idea.

PS. Ooups! Laurent's reply (with a similar conclusion), wasn't posted when I started to type. Sorry for cross-posting.

Thank you both. Indeed this explains my question. You made my day.

P.S.

I assume Colibri à queue violette #671, fig. 2 is a female Anthracothorax viridigula. Correct?

I'd go with that. And viridigula a juv.?
Buffon describes the central breast stripe of his C. à gorge violette as "brun mêlé de vert" (brown mixed with green), thus in any case not velvet black as you'd expect in nigricollis.
