Viellot [sic], some years after, without taking any notice of the previous distinction given these birds by Illiger, calls their genus Dendrocopus, a name evidently borrowed from Illiger; nor is this the only plagiarism committed by an ornithologist whose intrinsic merit requires no such dubious aid to increase his fame." (Swainson 1821); "Dendrocolaptes HERMANN, Observ. Zool, p. 135, 1804— type by subs. desig. (SWAINSON, Mem. Wern. Nat. Hist.

CERTHIA
(Certhiidae; Ϯ Eurasian Treecreeper C. familiaris) Gr. κερθιος kerthios small, tree-dwelling. insect-eating bird mentioned by Aristotle, perhaps the treecreeper Certhia but never properly identified.

Linnaeus's Certhia comprised five species (C. familiaris, C. pusilla, C. cærulea, C. cruentata, C. flaveola).  In nomenclature and generic combination the name is applied to a variety of thin- or curve-billed species, or those with creeper-like toes and claws.

Toutes deux ont trois doigts en avant & un en arrière comme les grimpereaux, & en même temps les pennes de la queue roides & pointues comme les pics" (Dendrocolaptes).
