As I struggled over the Dupont entries in The Eponym Dictionary of Birds (which I do not want to open again as I see them as solved I came again across this paper and the authors (apart from Mearns):
I think I have seen this link before but it fits into this thread The Dupont family: collectors, dealers and naturalists in nineteenth-century Paris.

So I am wondering if anyone ever read L'étymologie des noms d'oiseaux origine et sens des noms des oiseaux du Paléarctique occidental? Would be interesting to see what's written there.

I have Cabard & Chauvet (2003), and quote it often in The Key, but mainly for French vernacular names rather than eponyms (entry for L. P. Dupont on pp. 439-440).
