Here they are! Et voila!G. Kohler's 2017 thesis (referred to in #75) includes the following new genera:
Inambariornis Cohn-Haft, Kohler, Aleixo, Brumfield & Ribas. Type: Hemitriccus spodiops (von Berlepsch, 1901).
Lanyonia Cohn-Haft, Kohler, Aleixo, Brumfield & Ribas. Type: Poecilotriccus senex (von Pelzeln, 1868).
Andinotriccus Kohler, Cohn-Haft, Aleixo, Brumfield & Ribas. Type: Hemitriccus granadensis (Hartlaub, 1843).
Bornscheinia Kohler, Cohn-Haft, Aleixo, Brumfield & Ribas. Type: Hemitriccus orbitatus (zu Wied, 1831).
Campina Cohn-Haft, Kohler, Aleixo, Brumfield & Ribas. Type: Hemitriccus inornatus (von Pelzeln, 1868).
Krotalotriccus Kohler, Cohn-Haft, Aleixo, Brumfield & Ribas. Type: Poecilotriccus capitalis (P. Sclater, 1857).
Physatriccus Kohler, Cohn-Haft, Aleixo, Brumfield & Ribas. Type: Poecilotriccus sylvia (Desmarest, 1806).
To be fair to Kohler reading the thesis "Physa" refers to the onomatopoeic sound of a bladder emptying or bellows, and not as possibly implied in an earlier post, someone emptying their bladderThe only name I use among these new genera is Campina for inornata and another that I forgot
Physatriccus Kohler, Cohn-Haft, Aleixo, Brumfield & Ribas gen. nov. Type species: Poecilotriccus sylvia (Desmarest, 1806) Included species: Physatriccus sylvia (Desmarest, 1806); Physatriccus plumbeiceps (Lafresnaye, 1846); Physatriccus russatus (Salvin & Godman, 1884); Physatriccus fumifrons (Hartlaub, 1853); Physatriccus latirostris (Pelzeln, 1868). Etymology: The masculine generic name is taken from the Greek suffix physa (onomatopoeic word which refers the sound of an emptying bladder) and trikkos (little bird) referring to the vocal pattern shared by the species in this group.
Yeah, I don't know what other folks did to make Harvey's tree readable without the inevitable eye strain.Thanks much Acanthis for the links. Somehow I hadn't yet seen John Boyd's trees, much easier to read than the Harvey tree.
Just looking over this, I had also missed the relocation of Fork-tailed Pygmy-Tyrant (furcatus) earlier - interesting.

I just took a series of overlapping screenshots (~40) and printed them off.
These are now completely covered with scribblings and alterations, names and renames, and now getting a little dog-eared.
Still finding gems though eg. yesterday, noticing the huge genetic distance between Acropternis orthonyx populations in Ecuador and Venezuela.
Boyd's site is the best place to see cutting-edge bird taxonomic changes but be aware technically nothing is stable or set in stone. New research can result in him rapidly changing big pieces, as with the current review and rewriting of his suboscine pages. You can keep up to date here: Aves—A Taxonomy in Flux: Recent ChangesI always just squinted a LOT and to be honest I posted here as I figured smarter folks than I would have info at the tips of their fingers rather than go back to squinting. Thank you again for that post, now I have figured out where to get John Boyd's trees throughout his site, very handy!
The Ocellated Tapaculo split I have seen mooted before - not surprising there is genetic evidence as well.
Very little renaming for me but if I had to make proposals for future new genera, it would be these:These are now completely covered with scribblings and alterations, names and renames.

The TiF site has been quiet for a while. I suspect John has been immersed in other projects.
So there may be a whole load of other changes in the pipeline as he catches up.
by the description of the abstract, the paper is only based on a single partial mitochondrial gene. I would treat any conclusions with caution.Does anyone have access to this attila paper? I'm a little surprised there wasn't a break further south. I thought there were vocal differences either trans-/cis-Andean or across the Panama isthmus (I forget which).

Carlynne C. Simões, Pablo Vieira Cerqueira, Pedro Peloso, and Alexandre Aleixo. 2021. Integrative taxonomy of Flatbill Flycatchers (Tyrannidae) reveals a new species from the Amazonian lowlands. Zoologica Scripta. First published: 10 November 2021. https://doi.org/10.1111/zsc.12519
Integrative taxonomic studies continue to reveal that many current polytypic species of birds are in fact constituted by two or more species and therefore have been central in uncovering ‘hidden’ or ‘cryptic’ biodiversity. The Olivaceous Flatbill (Aves: Tyrannidae: Rhynchocyclus olivaceus) currently has nine recognized subspecies distributed throughout the Neotropics, but so far, no complete phylogenetic hypothesis exists to test the validity and evolutionary relationships among them. To remedy this, we conducted a multi-character integrative taxonomic revision of the genus Rhynchocyclus, focusing on the polytypic R. olivaceus. The combination of a taxonomically dense sampled multilocus phylogeny (including three mitochondrial and two nuclear genes) with phenotypic analyses including morphological and vocal characters pointed to several taxonomic inconsistencies within R. olivaceus. The analyses strongly support that R. olivaceus is paraphyletic, with an exclusively cis-Andean clade (where the topotypic R. olivaceus is found) clustering as sister to Rhynchocyclus fulvipectus, to the exclusion of a clade grouping trans-Andean and western Amazonian populations currently placed in R. olivaceus—one of which is unnamed and fully diagnosable based on vocal and genetic characters. Consistent with the phylogenetic results, our vocal analyses identified at least four morphologically cryptic lineages within R. olivaceus that can be mutually diagnosed from each other by different loudsongs and call parameters. Therefore, we provide evidence for splitting these four groups into separate species, two of which are sympatric but not syntopic in western Amazonia, including an unnamed species described herein—Rhynchocyclus cryptus, sp. nov. urn:lsid:zoobank.org:act:2DC17190-2BDD-49EC-88E6-4CF2FC2562A3.
