(syn. Lalage Ϯ Pied Triller L. nigra) L. eruca caterpillar; -vorus eating < vorare to devour; "6. Sub-genus (?), ERUCIVORA. ... Type.— Turdus orientalis, AUCT. (Saxicola orientalis, CUV. Mus. Paris.) OBS.—I have many doubts both as to the value of this group, and its precise situation among the Ceblepyrinæ. It is distinguished from all others I have yet seen, by its more lengthened and compressed bill; by the greater elevation of its tarsi, and by the softness or flexibility of its rump feathers. Judging theoretically, as these characters are the most aberrant I have seen, they might be supposed to indicate that genus which represented the tenuirostral type, particularly as the following [Oxynotus] is manifestly the representation of Prionops, VIEILL., Dasycephala, SWAINS., &c." (Swainson 1831); "Erucivora Swainson, 1832, Faun. Bor.-Amer., Birds, p. 483. Type, by original designation, Turdus orientalis Gmelin [= Turdus niger Forster]." (Mayr in Peters 1960, IX, 196).
