Rimator Ϯ Indochinese Wren-babbler R. danjoui) Pierre Charles Edmond Jabouille (1875-1947) French colonial administrator in Indochina 1905-1932, and China 1932-1933, ornithologist, editor of L’Oiseau; "Jabouilleia, gen nov. Intermediate between the Pomatorhinus of the tickelli group and Rimator. Differs from the first-mentioned genus in having the tail shorter than the wing and a very different bill, not so long, more compressed, with a higher ridge; nostrils are open and oval. From Rimator, in which it was previously placed, the new genus differs in the much larger size, less Wren-like, with a longer tail, stronger and coarser bill and legs. Culmen ridge higher. Type: Rimator danjoui Rob. & Kloss. ('Ibis,' 1919, p. 578, no. 133). ... Named in honor of my friend and associate-ornithologist, M. P. Jabouille." (Delacour 1927). This bird was formerly known as the Short-tailed Scimitar-babbler.
