(syn. Syndactyla Ϯ Peruvian Recurvebill S. ucayalae) Gr. σιμος simos  snub-nosed; genus Xenops Illiger, 1811, xenops; "My colleague, Dr. W. Meise, of the Staatliche Museen für Tierkunde und Völkerkunde, Dresden, kindly calls my attention to the fact that my Anachilus (Amer. Mus. Novitates, no. 332, p. 11, Oct. 31, 1928) proposed for a new genus of furnariine bird from Perú, is preoccupied by Anachilus Leconte (Smithsonian Misc. Coll., vol. 3, no. 3, p. 175, 1861) in Coleoptera.  I therefore propose to replace Anachilus with Simoxenops." (Chapman 1937).
