(Columbidae; Ϯ Philippine Cuckoo Dove M. tenuirostris) Gr. μακρος makros  deep; -πυγιος -pugios  -rumped  < πυγη pugē  rump; "Macropygia, Sw.   Wings moderate, rounded; the first and second quills graduated, and much shorter than the third.  Tail long, graduated; the feathers very broad and obtuse. The rump feathers very thick set.  Bill short: the gonys angulated.  Tarsus plumed.  Hinder toe longer than the tarsus.   M. phasianella. Pl. Col. 100.   Reinwardii. Ib. 248.   infuscata. Lich. (Brazil.)" (Swainson 1837); "Macropygia Swainson, Classif. Bds., 2, 1837, p. 348. Type, by subsequent designation, Columba phasianella Temminck, 1824, pl. col. 100. (not Columba phasianella Temminck 1821)  = Macropygia tenuirostris Bonaparte (Salvadori, Orn. Pap. e Mol., 3, 1882, p. 132)....  1 Gray mentions two species in 1840 and again in 1841 without designating a type; in 1855 he designates amboinensis which was not one of the originally included species. Strangely enough neither Bonaparte nor Reichenbach actually designated a type." (Peters 1937, III, 75).
