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. "59. CERTHIA.  Rostrum arcuatum, tenue, subtrigonum.  Lingua acuta." (Linnaeus 1758); "Genus CERTHIA.  Type by Linnean tautonymy and by subsequent designation of Gray (List Gen. Bds. 1st ed. 1840, p. 18): C. familiaris." (BOU 1915); "Certhia Linnaeus, 1758, Syst. Nat., ed. 10, 1, p. 118. Type, by tautonymy2, Certhia familiaris Linnaeus.  ...  2 Int. Comm. Zool. Nomen., 1955, 1, Sec. C (C-8), pp. 89-112. Direction 17." (Greenway in Peters, 1967, XII, p. 150). 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.
