Authorities such as Zoonomen and Avibase uniformly prefer Amazilia; so Wikispecies should follow the generally accepted view. RobHickling (talk) 21:03, 22 July 2015 (UTC)

Author[edit]

Weller (2009) has now said that the earlier brevirostris is valid. See http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/zoos.200800020/abstract So the citation should be restored to (Lesson, 1829). RobHickling (talk) 21:03, 22 July 2015 (UTC)
