DEFINITIONS

ZENTRYGON
(Columbidae; Buff-fronted Quail Dove Z. costaricensis) Portmanteau of genera Zenaida Bonaparte, 1838, dove, and Geotrygon Gosse, 1847, quail dove; "A clade of six mainly montane species generally allotted to Geotrygon was recovered (Johnson and Weckstein 2011; Fig. 1) as sister to a clade containing all species of Zenaida.  No generic name is currently available for this group, for which we propose:  Zentrygon, new genus    Type species. Geotrygon costaricensis Lawrence, 1868.   ...   In addition to the type species this genus contains the species originally described as Geotrygon lawrencii Salvin, 1874; Geotrygon albifacies Sclater, 1858; Columba frenata Tschudi, 1843; Geotrygon goldmani Nelson, 1912; and Geotrygon chiriquensis Sclater, 1856  ...  Geotrygon carrikeri Wetmore, 1941  ...  and G. linearis (Prĕvost, 1843)  ...   Etymology. This feminine name is formed from Zenaida and Geotrygon, to reflect the phylogenetic relationship with the former genus and the general form and habits long associated with quail-doves." (Banks et al. 2013); "Zentrygon Banks, Weckstein, Remsen and Johnson, 2013, Zootaxa, 3669 (2), p. 185.  Type, by original designation, Geotrygon costaricensis Lawrence, 1868." (JAJ 2020).
