Le Vaillant, introduced in the Ois. d'Afrique, (2. pl. 76. pl. 2.) though in reality a native of America; it is the Tanagra Guianensis of Latham, and it is remarkable for its round, naked nostrils, and the tooth of its bill being nearly obsolete; it has the wings of Lanius, and the tail of Falcunculus; this type I have called Cyclarhis.*  ...  *The characters of such new Genera as may be proposed, will be given in the next number, accompanied by figures of their bills, &c.” (Swainson 1824).
