DEFINITIONS

CERTHIAXIS
(Furnariidae; Ϯ Yellow-chinned Spinetail C. cinnamomea) Portmanteau of genera Certhia Linnaeus, 1758, treecreeper, and Synallaxis Vieillot, 1818, spinetail; "LVI. Cinnycerthia cinnamomea, Lesson, g. et sp. nov.   L'oiseau qui sert de type au genre cinnycerthie tient à la fois des sucriers, des grimpereaux, des cœreba et des troglodytes américains.  Par son bec, c'est un sucrier ou un cœreba; par ses tarses, c'est un grimpereau; par sa coloration, son port, il est presque semblable au certhia cinnamomea de Cayenne, type de notre genre certhiaxis, mais il n'a pas le sommet des rectrices usé ou formant pointe" (Lesson 1844); "Certhiaxis LESSON, Echo du Monde Savant, II (2), No. 8, p. 182, July 1844—type by orig. desig.
