DEFINITIONS

TERENOTRICCUS
(Tityridae; Ϯ Ruddy-tailed Flycatcher T. erythrurus fulvigularis) Gr. τερην terēn, τερενος terenos  soft, delicate; τρικκος trikkos  unidentified small bird. In ornithology triccus signifies tyrant flycatcher. "Terenotriccus gen. nov.  (Tyrannidæ.)   In form somewhat like Myiobius Gray, but second phalanx of middle toe partly adherent to outer toe, lateral toes relatively much shorter, tail shorter than distance from bend of wing to end of distal secondaries, and style of coloration very different (under parts uniform cinnamon-buff, tail rufous-buff, and no yellow on rump nor crown.)   Type, Myiobius fulvigularis Salvin and Godman.  (Tερενος, soft, delicate; τρικκος, a small bird.)   Species: Terenotriccus fulvigularis (Salvin and Godman), Terenotriccus erythrurus (Cabanis)." (Ridgway 1905). It has been suggested that this genus, together with Onychorhynchus and Myiobius, be moved to the Oxyruncidae.
