Atrichornis Stejneger, 1885 (Aves, atrichornithidae): generic name conserved
Abstract

The Commission has conserved the current usage of the widely used generic name Atrichornis Stejneger, 1885, which has been in universal use as a valid generic name for almost 90 years, for the Australian scrub-birds (atrichornithidae), by suppression of the name Atricha Gould, 1844, which was used in the incorrect subsequent spelling Atrichia for the scrub-birds into the first decade or so of the 20th century.
