DEFINITIONS

TINAMUS
(Tinamidae; Ϯ Great Tinamou T. major) Galibi (Cayenne) name Tinamú for the tinamous (cf. Wayāpi name Inämu); "alterius dudum demum post exaratam tabulam in cognitionem veni, novi scilicet generis quod Tinami nomine ab ill. BUFFONIO º) propositum inter Otides minores Perdicesque ambigit.   ...º) Ornithol. T. IV. ed. 4to. p. 502. Non video quid impediat, quo minus & latina lingua hoc nomen Tinamus pro designando americano avium genere recipiatur. Characterem ejus condere & nervose describere, suoque ordine anceps genus ponere, alii qui ipse viderit relinquo. Inter Otides & Perdices locandum judicat BUFFON. l. c. & Otidis generi subjungendum p. 503. A gallinaceis utique differt rostro non fornicato, sed gracili, producto, obtuso, naribus in medio locatis, nulla sine dubio membrana cornea semiclausis, tibiis parum denudatis, digito postico brevi a terra elevato, quod ultimum tamen etiam in nonnullis gallinaceis occurrit. Sed volatu gravi, ovis pluribus, nido in terra, pulveratrice natura, gallinaceæ utique gentis.  ...  [tabula] Tin. Soui. ——Tinamus. B." (Hermann 1783): based on “Tinamous” of de Buffon 1770-1783; "GENUS LV.  TINAMUS.  Rostrum longiusculum, obtusum; nares in medio rostri.  Rictus ampla.  Latera capitis subdenudata.  Cauda breviuscula.  Pedes tetradactyli, digito postico a terra elevato.  1. brasiliensis.  ...  2. cinereus.  ...  3. variegatus.  ...  4. Soui." (Latham 1790); "Tinamus Latham, Ind. Orn., 2, 1790, p. 633. Type, by subsequent designation, Tinamus brasiliensis Latham = Tetrao major Gmelin (Gray, List Gen. Bds., 1840, p. 63." (Peters 1931, 1, 12); "Tinamus Hermann,1 Tabl. Aff. Anim., pp. 164, 235, 1783—based on "Les Tinamous" Buffon (Hist. Nat. Ois., 4, p. 502, 1778); type, by subs. desig. (Apstein, Sitzungsb. Ges. Naturf. Freunde Berlin, 1915, p. 197), Tetrao major Gmelin [= "Le Magoua" Buffon].  ...  1 Tinamus, though universally credited to Latham (Ind. Orn., 2, p. 633, 1790), was already proposed by Hermann for Buffon's "Les Tinamous," comprising the four species listed by Latham. Apstein appears to have been the first to select a genotype for Tinamus Hermann. Fortunately, it is the same species as the one designated by G. R. Gray (List Gen. Bds., p. 63, 1840) as genotype of Tinamus Latham, viz., Tetrao major Gmelin." (Hellmayr & Conover 1942, XIII, 6-7).
