Ptilopsis

Kaup, Johannes (Johann) Jacob. 1851. Archiv Für Naturgeschicthe. (Arch.Naturgesch.; In Verbindung mit mehreren Gelehreten herausgegeben von Ar. Aug. Wiegmann.) 17: p 106. Alan Peterson states: “Type is currently uncertain. No type given by Kaup in erection of genus. He included two species Scops leucotis Sw. and Scops megalotis Gray according to the Richmond Index entry. I have yet to determine (2001.10.27) which species is the type.”
