PHLEGOPSIS

(Thamnophilidae; Ϯ Black-spotted Bare-eye P. nigromaculata) Gr. φλοξ phlox, φλογος phlogos  flame  < φλεγω phlegō  to flame; οψις opsis  countenance; Reichenbach's 1850, plate LVII, labelled Motacillinae: Troglodytinae & Menurinae, shows the bare 'spectacles' of this group of birds. "The last three birds have the space round the eyes more or less denuded, and would form the subgenus Phlegopsis, Reichb., of which, I believe, F. nigromaculatus is the type" (P. Sclater 1857); "Phlegopsis Reichenbach, Av. Syst. Nat., 1850, pl. 57. Type, by subsequent designation, Myothera nigro-maculata d'Orbigny and Lafresnaye (G. R. Gray, Cat. Gen. Subgen. Bds., 1855, p. 42)." (Peters 1951, VII, 253).
