DEFINITIONS

ANAIRETES
(Tyrannidae; Ϯ Tufted Tit Tyrant A. parulus) Gr. αναιρετης anairetēs  destroyer (i.e. tyrant). Illustrated in Reichenbach 1850, plate LXVI, labelled Muscicapinae: Tyranninae, with other tyrant flycatchers, this epithet seems scarcely warranted for the small Tufted Tit Tyrant, although it does tend towards aggression during the breeding season; "Anairetes Reichenbach, 1850, Avium Syst. Nat., pl. 66. Type, by subsequent designation (Sclater, 1888, Cat. Birds. Brit. Mus., 14, p. 106), Anairetes parulus." (Traylor in Peters 1979, VIII, 45); G. Gray, 1855, Cat. Genera Subgenera Birds Brit. Mus., p. 50, treated this name under Serpophaga, and gave the type as S. albocoronata Gould, 1839 = Muscicapa straminea Temminck, 1822 (now a subsp. of S. subcristata), but Reichenbach's plate cannot be identified with this bird.  I have elsewhere suggested that the birds of this genus be given the substantive name of Cachudito (from the Spanish cachudito  little long-horn).
Var. Anaeretes.
Synon. Spizitornis, Yanacea.
