(syn. Ploceus Ϯ Holub's Golden Weaver P. xanthops) Genus Oriolinus Reichenbach, 1863, weaver; Gr. ωψ ōps, ωπος ōpos  appearance, countenance; "Another species that lacks black in the plumage is "Hyphantornis" xanthops, which occurs side by side with Xanthophilus and Oriolinus in the tropics; it is larger, lacks chestnut on the head and throat, and builds nests on the top of tall weeds or flowering tops of reeds with the entrance under a hood at the side.  ...  In a dozen full-plumaged males I have examined, I have found only two with fine nuchal hairs present. I propose to place it in a new genus ORIOLINOPS, genotype Hyphantornis xanthops Hartlaub" (A. Roberts 1947) (Laurent Raty in litt.).
