Bulaca

(syn. Strix Ϯ Brown Wood Owl S. leptogrammica newarensis) Nepalese name Būlākā for the Brown or Mountain Wood Owl (see Meseidus); "Genus ULULA? Species new, NEWARENSIS, Newár* Owl, nobis.  ... *Name of the indigenous people of Nepal proper.  ... In the present state of Strigine classification it is impossible to say to what genus or subgenus our birds should be referred. They may be Nycteæ, or Ululæ, or a tertium quid: and at all events, the bill is neither short nor arched from the base, as (for example) in Otus, in Scops, and in Noctua. I have set them down in my note book as the type of a new genus or subgenus under the Newar generic title of Bulaca" (Hodgson 1836).   Var. Bulacca.
