DEFINITIONS

MARGAROBYAS
(Strigidae; Ϯ Bare-legged Owl M. lawrencii) Gr. μαργαριτης  margaritēs  pearl; βυας buas  owl; "Gymnoglaux Cabanis 1855 is a straightforward junior objective synonym of Gymnasio Bonaparte, 1854, despite the fact that no one in the last 153 years has treated it as such   ...   Because no other generic name is available for Gymnoglaux lawrencii Sclater and Salvin, we propose the following as a replacement   ...   Genus Margarobyas Olson et Suárez, nomen novum   pro "Gymnoglaux Cabanis" auctorum.  Type and only included species— Gymnoglaux lawrencii Sclater and Salvin, 1868.   Etymology— Gr. f. margarites, a pearl, plus Gr. m. byas, an owl, in allusion to Cuba, Pearl of the Antilles. The name is masculine in gender" (Olson & Suárez 2008).
