    Guaruba guarouba Citation ....;2005.01.30

    Hellmayrea gularis Citation

    Peters Checklist 7:93 has "p.390"; I follow {Richmond, et al. 1992} using p.290.


    Chordeiles gundlachii 1857 Chordeiles texana 1857 2013.12.28

    Aerodramus germanus 1876

    This citation, from the Richmond Index, antedates that given by Peters Checklist 4:223. A note on Richmond's card says 'Sig. marked "Extrait de l'Institut, 1876"; prob first publ. there.'


    Galloperdix 1845

    Peters Checklist 2:106 lists this as 1844. Vol. 13 pt.2 (II) shows a printed date of 1844. Richmond, et al. 1992 indicate that this number contains notes from the Dec. 17 meeting and may have not been published until 1845.
    My collation of citations from this Journal suggests 1845 appears likely, though uncertainty remains.


    Sula granti

    Treated as a subspecies in Peters Checklist 1:185.
    For treatment as a full species see Pittman RL, Jehl JL Jr., 1998. The Wilson Bulletin 110(2):155-170.


    Campylorhynchus gularis 1861

    Peters Checklist 9:380 has 1860. This protion of the PZS was published in 1861.


    Campylorhynchus griseus 1838

    Peters Checklist 9:382 has 1837, but see {Browning and Monroe, 1991}. The AOU Checklist 7th ed. p.472 has a note refering C. griseus in the entry for C. chiapensis and erroneously uses the date 1837.


    Thryothorus genibarbus 1838

    Peters Checklist 9:402 has 1837, but see {Browning and Monroe, 1991}.


    Glaucidium gnoma

    Considered by Robbins and Styles Auk 116 p.313, 1999 to be part of a superspecies with G. nubicola,costaricanum, and gnoma.


    Guarouba Systematics

    Hemitriccus grisepectus

    Cohn-Haft et al. (1997), Orn. Monogr. 48: 205-235 gave reasons for splitting Hemitriccus griseipectus from H. zosterops.


    Platylophus galericulatus 1816

    Peters Checklist 15:205 has 1817. See {Browning and Monroe, 1991}.


    Gymnoglaux Systematics

    Used by Peters Checklist vol.4 p.146.
    Not used by Sibley & Monroe.
    Used by HBW vol.5 p.182 "separated from [Otus nudipes] at generic level by very different morphology and vocal patterns."

    Zimmerius gracilipes 1868

    Peters Checklist 8:10 lists 1867 as the date.
    This protion of PZS (for 1867) was published in 1868 (fide CWR).


    Phyllomyias griseocapilla 1862

    Peters Checklist 8:6 lists the date as 1861. As verified in the Richmond Index, this was published Feb. 1, 1862.


    Prionops gabela Spelling ....;2006.04.08

    Podiceps grisgena Concept

    Often a form is separated as a full species:

    Normand David's note regarding this issue reads:

    "A case has been made for placing Colymbus major Boddaert, 1783 (= Podiceps major) in the newly established monotypic genus Podicephorus Bochenski, 1994.

    Bochenski, Z. B. 1994. The comparative osteology of grebes (Aves: Podicipediformes) and its systematic implications. Acta zool. cracov. 37 (1): 191-346.

    The summary reads: "...a revision of the genus Podiceps is proposed, to the effect that 1) the species "Podiceps" major is placed in a new monotypic genus Podicephorus, and 2) Podiceps grisegena grisegena and P. g. holboellii are restored to their species status".

    So it appears on the basis of osteological evidence this is elevated to full species status.

    Note however, that the AOU CL 7th ed. notes (p.8) that Storer 1996 Auk 113: 974-975 in a review argues against this split. Bochenski argued for separation based on his not finding sexual dimorphism in the Old world form of P. grisgena. It appears that Bochenski's data were not representative, obtained from birds far from the breeding grounds. Storer indicates that sexual dimorphism is found in grebes whenever sufficient material is available.

    In his review he includes raw data, provided by Jon Fjeldsa for European forms of P. grisgena that appear to strongly support the idea that sexual dimorphism (felt by Bochenski to be absent) is present.

    Storer in his review lists data (below) from Jon Fjeldsa for culmen measurements of European P. grisgena obtained on the breeding gounds (contra the data that Bochenski used, which was many regions, and often not on the breeding grounds.

    The data as presented by Storer are:

    Culmen measurements (as presented by Storer):

    Kazakhstan & Obj lowlands W. Siberia:
    F: 35.1 35.8 36.1 36.2 37.2
    M: 40.2 41.6 41.6 43.5
    Denmark:
    F: 31.5 33.3 35.0 35.0 35.9 36.0 36.1 36.4 36.8 36.8 36.8 37.1 37.2 38.2 38.5 38.6
    M: 38.0 38.0 39.0 39.2 39.5 40.0 40.2 40.2 40.3 40.6 41.5 42.0 42.1 43.2
    Arkhangelsk and Kola:
    F: 38.1 40.1 40.1 40.3
    M: 40.2 41.5 41.6 43.2 44.2

    These raw data are convincing, and even more convincing is a boxplot of the data, partitioned by gender.

    These boxplots include a "notch" that includes the 95% confidance interval for the median (median location is indicated by the dot).

    These specimens are clearly sexually dimorphic with regard to culmen length.
