MYIOTRICCUS

(Tyrannidae; Ϯ Eastern Ornate Flycatcher M. phoenicurus) Gr. μυια muia, μυιας muias  fly; τρικκος trikkos  unidentified small bird. In ornithology triccus signifies tyrant flycatcher; "Myiotriccus gen. nov.  (Tryannidæ.[sic])   Similar to Aphanotriccus in those structural characters which separate the latter from Myiobius, but outermost primaries longer (tenth equal to second or third, ninth longer than fifth or sixth), tail much shorter than wing to end of distal secondaries, a yellow spot on crown and rump (as in Myiobius), and tail at least partly rufous.   Type, Tyrannula phœnicura Sclater.   (Mυια, a fly; τρικκος, a small bird.)"
