GRAUERIA

(Macrosphenidae; Ϯ Grauer's Warbler G. vittata) Rudolf Grauer (1871-1927) Austrian ornithologist, collector in tropical Africa 1904-1911. "GRAUERIA, gen. n.  Evidently near the genus Macrosphenus, but with the bill much stronger and shorter, not quite so long as the head, and less hooked at the tip.  Tail longer, nearly as long as the wing, and with wider rectrices.  Rictal bristles weak.  Sexes alike. Throat and fore-neck barred in the type species.  The type is GRAUERIA VITTATA, sp. n.   ...   Mr. Grauer, in whose honour the genus is named, sent six examples of this interesting new species in his last collection." (Hartert 1908). Grauer's Warbler is a bird of uncertain affinities, and may belong in Cisticolidae.
