Dicruropsis

(syn. Dicrurus Ϯ Kai Drongo D. megalornis) Genus Dicrurus Vieillot, 1816, drongo; Gr. οψις opsis  appearance; "7. DICRUROPSIS MEGALORNIS (G. R. Gr.).  ...  This bird and the other allied Austro-Malayan species have been united by Mr. Sharpe to the genus Chibia Hodgs., the type of which, Chibia hottentotta (Linn.), has a much longer and more acute bill, and is also very conspicuous for the tuft of silky hairs springing from the forehead - a feature which, among the Austro-Malayan species, is only to be found in Dicrurus pectoralis, Wall., from the Sula Islands1.   ...   1 I think that the Austro-Malayan species may be more properly referred to a peculiar genus, which I propose to call Dicruropsis, characterized as follows: - Rostrum crassum, rostro specierum generis Dissemuri simile, sed culmine minus acuto, crassiusculo; cauda bifida divaricata, rectricibus extimis superne introrsum paullum convolutis." (Salvadori 1878); "Dicruropsis Salvadori, 1878, Proc. Zool. Soc. London, p. 88. Type, by subsequent designation, Dicrurus megalornis G. R. Gray (Salvadori, 1881, Agg. Orn. Papuasia Mol., 2, p. 173)." (Vaurie in Peters 1962, XV, 138).
