Il ne contient que la Columb. campestris, Spix, du Brésil, qui méritait si bien le nom de venusta sous lequel Temminck aussi l'a fait figurer.   ...   o. Zenaideæ.  ...   69. Uropelia, Bp.  255. campestris, Spix." (Bonaparte 1855 (Comptes Rend.)); "*74. Uropelia, Bp.(Columbina! part. Spix.)

Av., 2, p. 85, "1854"), but it is extremelty doubtful whether the second volume of this work can be considered as actually published prior to 1857" (Hellmayr & Conover 1942, XIII, 551).
