(syn. Mycteria Ϯ Painted Stork M. leucocephala) Genus Diplura Jerdon, 1864, stork; L. avis bird. This name was created by Strand 1910. “Dipluravis would have priority for this genus, were it not for Ibis ... Diplocercus ... and Pseudotantalus ... It is, therefore, stranded on the beach of synonymy - a warning to entomologists who may be tempted to introduce ornithological terms in obscure places.” (Richmond 1917); "Dipluravis Strand, Soc. Ent. Stuttgart, 25, no. 4, 1910, p. 14. Substitute name for Diplura Jerdon, not Koch." (Peters 1931, 1, 126).
