 Comments
       
  Comment: AOU supplement 45 (2004) states that a taxonomic proposal has been submitted to separate Basilinna Boie, 1831 (TSN 693124) from Hylocharis Boie, 1831 (TSN 178067), but the committee has not yet accepted this proposal. Trochilus leucotis Vieillot is the type species of Basilinna Boie
