DEFINITIONS

CYCLARHIS
(Vireonidae; Ϯ Rufous-browed Peppershrike C. gujanensis) Gr. κυκλος kuklos  circle; ῥις rhis, ῥινος rhinos  nostrils; “Another deviation from Lanius may be seen in the Sourcirou of M. Le Vaillant, introduced in the Ois. d'Afrique, (2. pl. 76. f. 2.) though in reality a native of America; it is the Tanagra Guianensis of Latham, and it is remarkable for its round, naked nostrils, and the tooth of its bill being nearly obsolete; it has the wings of Lanius, and the tail of Falcunculus; this type I have called Cyclarhis.*  I am unacquainted with any other kindred birds from the new world   ...   *The characters of such new Genera as may be proposed, will be given in the next number, accompanied by figures of their bills, &c.” (Swainson 1824); "Cyclarhis Swainson, 1824, Zool. Journ, 1, p. 294. Type, by monotypy, Tanagra gujanensis Gmelin." (Blake in Peters, 1968, XIV, p. 103).
