DEFINITIONS

CRYPTURELLUS
(Tinamidae; Tataupá Tinamou C. tataupa) Dim. < genus Crypturus Illiger, 1811, tinamou; "CRYPTURELLUS, gen.nov.  We have not included in the genus Crypturus the two species C. tataupa and C. parvirostris, as we consider them to differ generically, chiefly in the formation of the bills.  In all the South-American species of the preceding genus (twenty) the nostrils are placed in the anterior half of the bill, whereas in Crypturellus they are situated in the posterior portion.  The membrane on this part is more persistent than in Crypturus and the gonys is proportionately much longer.  We propose C. tataupa (Temminck) as the type" (Brabourne & Chubb 1914); "Crypturellus Brabourne and Chubb, Ann. and Mag. Nat. Hist., (8), 14, 1914, p. 322.  Type, by original designation, "C. tataupa Temm." (= Tinamus tataupa Temminck.)" (Peters, 1931, I, p. 15).
Synon. Crypturornis, Microcrypturus, Orthocrypturus.

● “Hellmayr proposed Automulus roraimae as a new name for Philydor albigularis Salvin and Godman on grounds that it was a homonym of Philydor albogularis Spix ... 1824 ... however under the International Rules albigularis and albogularis are different names” (Peters VII 1951); “Under the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature Art. 58 (8) these two names are homonymous variable spellings and under Arts. 57 and 59 (a) primary homonyms, so Hellmayr was correct and Vaurie was wrong” (Eisennann in Vaurie 1980) (syn. Automolus roraimae).
