DEFINITIONS

MYIODYNASTES
(Tyrannidae; Ϯ Northern Streaked Flycatcher M. maculatus) Gr. μυια muia,  μυιας muias  fly; δυναστης dunastēs  ruler  < δυναμαι dunamai  to be mighty; "Myiodynastes luteiventris, Bp., nouvelle espèce d'un nouveau genre qui en a quatre et que je décrirai comparativement ailleurs" (Bonaparte 1854); "Myiodynastes audax, Bp. ex Gm." (Bonaparte 1857); "The true type of the genus Myiodynastes, Bp. (a generic term published by the Prince, like many others, without characters, or even the indication of any exact type), was intended, I believe, to have been the Tyrannus audax, Auct. The name first appeared in print in the 'Comptes Rendus' for April 3, 1854, in connexion with M. luteiventris, which I have described above; but it also occurs in the catalogue of birds collected in Cayenne by M. Desplanches (p. 11), where it is applied to T. audax" (P. Sclater 1859); "Myiodynastes Bonaparte, 1857, Bull. Soc. Linn. Normandie, 2, p. 35. Type, by monotypy, "Myiodynastes audax Bp. ex Gm."1 = Muscicapa audax Gmelin = Muscicapa maculata Müller.   ...   1 Only the fact that Gmelin appears to have used the specific name audax for a single species makes this reference identifiable as given." (Traylor in Peters 1979, VIII, 215-216).
Synon. Hypermitres.
