DEFINITIONS

EPINECROPHYLLA
(Thamnophilidae; Stipple-throated Antwren E. haematonota) Gr. επι epi  on; νεκρος nekros  dead; φυλλον phullon  leaf; "Epinecrophylla M. L. Isler & Brumfield, new genus.  Type species. - Formicivora haematonota Sclater, 1857.  ...  The distinctive foraging specialization of Epinecrophylla species further supports their placement in a distinctive genus.  Etymology.—The feminine generic name is taken from the Greek epi (on), necro (dead) and phyllo (leaf), meaning "on the dead leaf," reflecting the strong predeliction of members of the genus to search for insects on dead hanging leaves.   ...   The following species  ...  are included in the genus: Epinecrophylla fulviventris  ...  Epinecrophylla gutturalis  ...  Epinecrophylla leucophthalma  ...  Epinecrophylla haematonota  ...  Epinecrophylla fjeldsaai  ...  Epinecrophylla spodionota  ...  Epinecrophylla ornata  ...  Epinecrophylla erythrura" (M. L. Isler et al. 2006); "Epinecrophylla M. L. Isler and Brumfield in M. L. Isler, Lacerda, P. Isler, Hackett, Rosenberg and Brumfield, 2006, Proc. Biological Soc. Washington, 119 (4), p. 523." (JAJ 2021).  It has recently been suggested that the birds in this genus be given the substantive name  Stipplethroat (e.g. Rufous-backed Stipplethroat E. haematonota).
