(syn. Glareola Ϯ Madagascar Pratincole G. ocularis) L. sub near to; genus Glareola Brisson 1760, pratincole; "In the Catalogue of the Birds in the British Museum a number of species are classed under the generic name Galactochrysea. The correct spelling is Galachrysia (Bonaparte, Comptes Rendus Sci. (Paris), Vol. XLIII., p. 419, 1856), introduced for lactea and cinerea. These species are miniatures of Glareola, with a short, forked tail and form quite a distinct little group. With these, however, Sharpe associated Glareola ocularis Verreaux (S. Afr. Quart. Journ., Vol. II., p. 80, 1833), but this species is a typical Glareola in size, coloration, and detail, save that it lacks the long, deeply-forked tail, having a short, slightly forked one. I would separate it as a new genus under the name SUBGLAREOLA, with G. ocularis Verreaux as type." (Mathews 1913).
