EDOLISOMA
(Campephagidae; New Guinea Cicadabird E. melas) Genus Edolius Cuvier, 1816, drongo; Gr. σωμα sōma, σωματος sōmatos  body; "GENRE EDOLISOME. — EDOLISOMA, Nob.  Ce genre est établi d'après une espèce intermédiaire, par ses formes, entre les Ceblepyris et les Edolius.  Le bec est assez large à la base, et se comprime de plus en plus en se rapprochant de la pointe.  Mais les plumes du croupion sont épineuses comme dans les Graucalus, Ceblepyris et Lalage.  La type est l'EDOLISOME DE MARESCOT. — EDOLISOMA MARESCOTI ."

SULA
(Sulidae; Ϯ Brown Booby S. leucogaster) Norwegian name Sula for a gannet  < Old Norse Súla. The suppositions that this name is derived either from Gr. συλαω sulaō  to rob, or from Gaelic souler  sharp-sighted, are erroneous. In fact, the gannets Morus no longer hold this generic tag, which is restricted to the tropical and subtropical boobies; "LE FOU.  ...  SULA" (Brisson 1760): based on "Booby" of Catesby 1731, "Stultus" of Barrère 1741 and 1745, "Plancus Morus" of Klein 1750, and Pelecanus Piscator Linnaeus, 1758; "Sula, Brisson, Orn., 1, 1760, p. 60; 6, 1760, p. 494. Type, by tautonymy, "Sula" = Sula leucogaster Boddaert." (Peters 1931, I, 83).   
Var. Suca.
