Buettikoferia

(syn. Buettikoferella Ϯ Buff-banded Grassbird B. bivittata) Dr Johann Büttikofer (1850-1927) Swiss zoologist; "Dr. J. VON MADARÁSZ wrote to point out that the name Muelleria, proposed by Dr. Büttikofer for a genus of Timeliidæ (cf. Notes Leyden Mus. xvii. pp. 68, 96, 1895), had been preoccupied more than once since 1803 [Muelleria Leach, 1814; Muelleria Férussac, 1824; Muelleria Jaeger, 1833; Muelleria Philippi, 1853], and could not be employed in Ornithology. He therefore proposed the name of Buettikoferia in its place." (von Madarász 1902).
