Reichenbach's 1849, plate XLIX, shows the large, pear-shaped nostrils of the Bushy-crested Hornbill opening upwards on the maxilla. "Anorrhinus Reichenbach, Av. Syst. Nat. [1849], pl. XLIX. No species; generic details only. Type, by subsequent designation, Buceros galeritus Temminck. (G. R. Gray, Cat. Gen. Subgen. Bds., 1855, p. 83.)1   ...   1 In Ateneo Italiano, 2, 1854, p. 312, Bonaparte added the species to Anorrhinus, but none of the three there included agrees with the figure of the generic details given by Reichenbach. As a matter of fact Bonaparte evidently transposed the species that he included in Anthracoceros with those placed in Anorrhinus." (Peters, 1945, V, p. 261).
