Yep. I wanted to take advantage of the subscription gift. Unfortunately, I couldn't extend the subscription because it's in dollars. I have an account but I couldn't renew it. Before, it was a friend who gave me the subscription. You see what I'm meant ?
I'm surprised conversion isn't something your bank can't do automatically when processing payments?

Jim, I work for BOW and can help you renew. With a credit card or Paypal you can pay in any dollars. Write me at [email protected].
 
I have a request for Jim and Andrew.

I had some spare time last night and was messing around with Thraupidae & Cardinalidae. Basically arranging them in a form that satisfies me.
Several of your creations came in handy (thanks for those!😁) but a new (sub)genus for Diglossa indigotica would be useful.
Could you please apply your knowledge and creativity to help? Something that sounds euphonious and doesn't look like Dr Frankenstein came up with it.
Definitely not Pseudodiglossopis😖

Yo ! Bien ou bien ? It's funny isn't it?

Glaucodiglossa or Indiglossa (porte-manteau between Indig[otica] and Diglossa)
 
If Nemosia rourei turns out to be not a Nemosia how about something like Cerasilaimus?
Please be gentle it's my first time trying this kind of thing😁
 
My library is still in storage and to while away the hours I succumbed to creating new genera and subgenera for my own checklist, all citizen-science for my amusement and to keep up with Jim and Andrew, based mainly on morphology and geolocation. The following new fabrications are included under “Manuscript-names” in The Key. The specific epithets could be types if the names were adopted into nomenclature.

Atjehillas / Pycnonotus snouckaerti; Castanochlamys / Hemixos castanonotus; Chamorrornis / Metabolus takatsukasae; Galactogramma / Pycnonotus leucogrammicus; Garbanzornis / Metabolus godeffroyi; Hamartiomyza / Gymnomyza viridis; Melanoderaion / Lichmera notabilis; Melanoprosopeia / Hemixos cinereus; Monomeliphaga / Pycnopygius ixoides; Navorchilus / Hylorchilus navai; Nesobasileus / Myiagra eythrops; Onceromyias / Cyornis sanfordi; Phlogocichla / Liocichla phoenicea; Poecilotypops / Caligavis subfrenata; Rubixodia / Rubigula erythropthalmus; Sakalavaralla / Zapornia olivieri; Satrapeornis / Zoothera everetti; Scotinella / Ptiloprora plumbea; Suvarnapicos / Picus dedemi; Xaymacapicos / Melanerpes radiolatus; Zosteropais / Zosterornis striatus

I should check each of your names to understand the etymology.
