1 As stated by David & Gosselin (2002) [David, 2002 #1125] the name Callaeas was not, when first used, combined with a species-group name, and is thus masculine. It's grammatical gender is covered by Art. 30.1.4.2 of the Code (I.C.Z.N., 1999) [I.C.Z.N., 1999 #2059].
2 For elevation to species rank based morphological distinctness; see Higgins et al. (2006) [Higgins, 2006 #13593] and Murphy et al. (2006) [Murphy, 2006 #9985].
3 For correction of spelling see David & Gosselin (2002) [David, 2002 #1125].
4 This name conserved in preference to Creadion; see I.C.Z.N. (2011) [I.C.Z.N., 2011 #12806].
5 For treatment at species rank; see Scofield (2009) [Scofield, 2009 #12260] and Gill et al. (2010) [Gill, 2010 #12348].
