"Valde affinis hæc pulchra species, Psaridi roseicolli   ...   Sed differte rostro breviore et dorsi coloribus pallidioribus" (de La Fresnaye 1839); "153. PSARINÆ.  ...  1411. Platypsaris, Bp." (Bonaparte 1854); "Platypsaris, Bp. Ann. d. Sc. Nat. 1854.   ...   6. PACHYRHAMPHUS LATIROSTRIS.   ...  This bird I consider to be a strict congener of the last species P. validus.  It is, as appears from Mr. Gray's 'List of Genera,' the type of Prince Bonaparte's genus Platypsaris, and I have therefore placed that term at the head of this section of the present group."
