Abstract
In a recent paper, we described a new bird species, Scytalopus gonzagai, and proposed the English name “Bahian Mouse-colored Tapaculo” for it (Maurício et al. 2014). However, this proposal conflicts with general principles of the formation of English names and, thus, we propose the name “Boa Nova Tapaculo” for S. gonzagai.
