  Comment: See Peterson's comments (Zoonomen website). The AOU check-list committee rejected a proposal to merge Phaeochroa Gould, 1861 (TSN 553669) into Campylopterus Swainson, 1827 (TSN 553670) on the basis of insufficient published evidence. The South American AOU committee made the same decision
