ERYTHROGENYS

(TimaliidaeϮ Rusty-cheeked Scimitar-babbler E. erythrogenys) Specific name Pomatorhinus erythrogenys Vigors, 1832. "Erythrogenys "Hodgs." = Baker, 1930, Fauna Brit. India, Birds, ed. 2, 7, p. 39. Type, by original designation and tautonymy, "E[rythrogenys]. gouldii = P[omatorhinus]. erythrogenys Vigors." Not Erythrogenys Brandt, 1841, nomen emendatum for Erythrogonys Gould, 1838" (Deignan 1964 in Peters, X, 266); "Baker (1930) coined this name by accident, citing Hodgson, 1836 but Hodgson had in fact used Erythrogonys, which was preoccupied. Baker's name is not preoccupied by Erythrogenys von Brandt as that was a nomen emendatum and has no standing" (Dickinson & Christidis (eds.) 2014).
Synon. Megapomatorhinus, Orthorhinus.
