  Comment: Once Latinized, compound species-group names ending in -philus and -phila are to be treated as adjectives only (ICZN 1999: Art. 31.2, 34.2) and do not fall under Art. 31.2.2 [...] episcopus is a noun in apposition. Consequently: Thraupis [F] episcopus nesophilus Riley, 1912, must be corrected to Thraupis episcopus nesophila (David and Gosselin, 2011)
