other collected by Mr. Bruzin, also in Mexico.


Namensanpassung nach Zuordnung zu Bolborhynchus

Der Artname muss dem Genus des Gattungsnamens folgen.
Cassin hat als Gattungsnamen PSITTACULA verwendet und dazu korrekt lineola, also eine weibliche Form des Artnamens verwendet.
Nach einordnung in die Gattung Bolborhynchus muss die Artbezeichnung ins männliche angepasst werden.
Das wäre dann lineolatus.
Diese Korrektur hat schon Baird durchgeführt laut Finch1.

Die korrekte Benennung ist also eigentlich Bolborhynchus lineolatus und nicht B.lineola wie aktuell meist verwendet.

Der Hexenwahn vom 15. bs zum 17. Jahrhundert war keine Ausgeburt des finsteren Mittelalters, war keine kollektieve Manie, es war stattdessen eine von Gelehrten! kräftig propagierte Theorie.
