TROGON
(Trogonidae; Ϯ White-tailed Trogon T. viridis) Gr. τρωγων trōgōn  fruit-eating, gnawing  < τρωγω trōgō  to gnaw; “The reason for the name Trogon seems to be because Pliny has such a name after the Picus.” (Pennant 1773); "Trogon. Genus 51.  ...   Le genre du Couroucou (1).   ...   (1) Couroucou, nom formé de Curucui, qui est celui que les Brasiliens donnent à la quatrième espece de ce genre.   ...  Genus Trogonis (1).   ...   (1) Trogon, nomen quartæ hujus generis speciei a Moehringio inditum" (Brisson 1760): based on "Curucui" of Marcgrave 1648, "Tzinitzcan" of Hernandez 1651, and "Trogon" of Moehring 1752; "Linné's T. curucui, der wahre Typus der Gattung Trogon, ist eine nur auf Marcgrave's Beschreibung des Curucui basirende Art, welche wahrscheinlich Linné selbst nie gesehen hat." (Cabanis & Heine 1863); "Trogon Brisson, Orn., 1, 1760, p. 42; 4, p. 164. Type, by subsequent designation, Trogon viridis Linné = Trogon strigilatus Linné (Stone, Auk, 24, 1907, p. 192)." (Peters 1945, V, 150); "For use of the name T. viridis instead of T. strigilatus Linnaeus, 1766, see Zimmer, 1948, Am. Mus. Novit., no.1380, p. 26." (AOU Check-list N. Amer. Birds, ed. 6, 1983, 363); "TROGON Brisson, 1760  M—"Trogon" Brisson; type by tautonymy = Trogon viridis Linnaeus, 1766" (Dickinson & Remsen (eds.) 2013, 280).
