DEFINITIONS

PHOENICOPARRUS
(Phoenicopteridae; Ϯ Andean Flamingo P. andinus) Gr. φοινιξ phoinix, φοινικος phoinikos  crimson, red; L. parrus or parra  unknown bird of omen (variously identified, e.g. nightjar, owl, woodpecker, lapwing, wheatear); "Si le Phœnicoptère a trois doigts (Ph. andinus, Philippi, ex Am. m. Chili, in Caban. Journ.) existe véritablement, et qu'il n'y ait pas de méprise quant à ses pieds tridactyles, ce troisième Phœnicoptère américain, si différent de ruber, L. (americanus, Orbigny ex Seba) et de ignipalliatus, Geoff. (chilensis? Molina), devra incontestablement former un second genre dans cette singulière famille: nous proposons pour lui le nom de Phœnicoparrus." (Bonaparte 1856).
Var. Phaenicoparrus, Phoenicoparra.
Synon. Lipocentrus.
