Genus: Rhinoptilus

Description

Taxonomy

Rhinoptilus is a genus in the family Glareolidae.

Smutsornis vs. Rhinoptilus

Some authorities (Clements, 2007) place Double-banded Courser in the monotypic genus Smutsornis. However Howard & Moore (2003) and Sibley & Monroe (1996) place it within the genus Rhinoptilus and the Opus awaits clarification.

Genus Rhinoptilus viewedit
R. africanus Double-banded Courser
R. cinctus Three-banded Courser
R. chalcopterus Bronze-winged Courser
R. bitorquatus Jerdon's Courser
