1 For recognition and circumscription of this family see Barker et al. (2013) [Barker, 2013 #14348].
2 For treatment as a separate species from C. frugivorus, see A.O.U. (1998) [A.O.U., 1998 #9] and Townsend et al. (2007) [Townsend, 2007 #10652]. But see Bond & Dod (1977) [Bond, 1977 #435] and Isler & Isler (1987) [Isler, 1987 #2092].
3 Proposed subspecies selleanus may merit recognition, but further study is desirable; see Keith et al. (2003) [Keith, 2003 #14531].
4 Correct original spelling. Spelling neibei in Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533] was an ISS.
5 For placement in C. frugivorus see Wetmore & Swales (1931) [Wetmore, 1931 #15729], Townsend et al. (2007) [Townsend, 2007 #10652]; but see Hilty (2011) [Hilty, 2011 #13517].
