DEFINITIONS

LISSOTIS
(Otididae; Ϯ Black-bellied Bustard L. melanogaster) Gr. λισσος lissos  smooth; ωτις ōtis, ωτιδος ōtidos  bustard; alluding to the uncrested head of the Black-bellied Bustard; "*Lissotis R. melanogarter [sic] RÜPP.  tab. CCLIII. fig. 2160-63.  senegalensis VIEILL.  Rhaad RÜPP. non SHAW.  Barrowii GRAY  tab. CCLIII. fig. 2164.   *afra L. GM. tab. CCLIV. fig. 2165-67.   *leucoptera RCHB. afroides A. SM. tab. CCLIV. fig. 2168-70" (Reichenbach 1848); "Lissotis Reichenbach, Syn. Av., no. 3, 1848, gallinaceae, p. [6], pl. CCLIII, figs. 2160-63. Type, by subsequent designation, Otis melanogaster Rüppell (Gray, Cat. Gen. Subgen. Bds., 1855, p. 109)." (Peters 1934, II, 224).  Reichenbach's 1848 plate CCLIII shows a group of four birds of this distinctive bustard, although his 1849, plate XXXI shows only the heads of two of those birds (thus bearing more resemblance to Eupodotis than to Lissotis).
