  Comment: Recent work suggests oseryi should not be retained in Psarocolius, though it's closest allies (perhaps Ocyalus latirostris) remain unclear. Gill & Wright (2006) have apparently followed the unpublished conclusion of the American Ornithologists' Union "South American Classification Committee," and give the combination as Clypicterus oseryi. ITIS is awaiting further clarification before taking action on this matter
