(Thamnophilidae; Ϯ Black-throated Antshrike F. viridis) Frederick Vavasour McConnell (1868-1914) English ornithologist, explorer in British Guiana, collector; L. suffix -ena  relating to; "FREDERICKENA, gen. nov.  The species which I propose to separate as a new genus under the above title has also been previously placed in the genus Thamnophilus, Vieillot, with which it has no near affinity; it may be characterized by the absence of a concealed white dorsal patch. The nuchal crest is composed of rather broad feathers with rounded tips. The bill is short and stout, the depth being equal to about one-half the length of the exposed culmen. The wing is rounded, the fourth, fifth, and sixth primaries longest and subequal; the seventh is longer than the third, but shorter than the fourth. The tail, which is rounded and graduated, is about two-thirds the length of the wing.  The male is almost uniform in colour, but the female has the tail and entire under surface barred.  Type, Thamnophilus viridis Vieillot."
