● "Sporophila intermedia Cabanis  ...  Loxia grisea Gmelin (Syst. Nat., 1, [2], p. 857, 1789) was long used for the above species. The name rests exclusively upon "Le Gros-Bec de Virginie" Daubenton, Pl. Enl., pl. 393, fig. 1, called by Buffon "Le Grisalbin." The rather poor figure shows a blackish bill, white throat, and whitish superciliaries, and I am inclined to agree with Chubb (Bull. Brit. Orn. Cl., 41, p. 35, 1920) that the name is better dropped as undeterminable." (Hellmayr 1938, XIII, 176) (unident.).
