(syn. Campethera Ϯ Knysna Woodpecker C. notata) Gr. νοτος notos south; Late Gr. πικος pikos woodpecker < L. picus woodpecker; "The typical Chrysoptilopicus must contain the type species and C. abingoni A. Smith, and the subgenus Chrysopicus would include our species C. bennetti (A. Smith) and C. capricornis (Strickland and Scl.). The single species P. notatus Lichtenstein is characterised by its entirely different style of coloration and has the tail longer in proportion to the wing than in the preceding, the wing itself more rounded in shape. I make it the type of a new genus NOTOPICUS." (A. Roberts 1922).
