DEFINITIONS

ANDIGENA
(Ramphastidae; Grey-breasted Mountain Toucan A. hypoglauca) Mod. L. Andium  Andes; Gr. γενος genos  race, genus, species; "It had long been my intention to propose a generic name for the Andean group of Toucans, characterized by the dense villose clothing of the under surface, the colouring of which is of a uniform tint, instead of being crossed by bars of black, red and yellow as in the typical Pteroglossi; and at no moment could such a step be more appropriately taken than at the present, when characterizing a new species of this section, for which, indicative of the country in which the members are found, I propose the generic term of Andigena, and for the new species, A. laminirostris; the other species pertaining to this genus are A. hypoglaucus, A. nigrirostris, A. cucullatus, and A. Baillonii." (Gould 1851); "Andigena Gould, 1851, Proc. Zool. Soc. London, pt. 18, (1850), p. 93.  Type, by subsequent designation (Sundevall, 1853, Berättelse om Framstegen Vertebr. Naturalhist.
