I basically do not mind that kind of kind Bryoleuca. But the species of this genus on this site are in the subgenus Bryoleuca kind Bryophila. What are the actions of a moderator? Rises to the rank of subgenus kind? on what basis? no work with the establishment of a new rank Bryoleuca, there is the type species of the genus, there is no kind of list. (More precisely, those I do not know if it's all there). Any work on the description of three new species in the genus Bryoleuca.which is still some species of this genus (kindly provided me work Oleg).
There are three options for solving the situation:
1. Raising the rank of subgenus Bryoleuca. to sort, with automatic transfer of all types of the subgenus in the genus.(Here I ostanavlivaetdve things:
- Not knowing which species in this genus
- Perhaps a few clumsy Systematics (now may Peter and corrected) when subgenus raised to the rank of genus, vseravno remains in the mother's age. :(
2. Creating a new kind Bryoleuca and the inclusion of new species in the description of it.But it turns out that one taxon is in two ranks, and this is not good.
3. kompromisny version of new species in the subgenus Bryoleuca (authors without brackets) and wait for the audit of these groups, and then on the basis of the audit have already spread on leave.
If there are other opinions, I am pleased I will consider them.

Oleg, if not difficult to link to or even better than the work itself :) that would raise the rank consciously. In all European sites is still Bryophila. I'm not hard to raise the grade, but that would then have been no confusion. :) But for the sake of a new kind, and it is worth doing.

Today Bryoleuca schitiaetsya come on par with Bryophila. Not I started:) Scythobrya same genus, rather than a subgenus.

Kind of, I realized Bryoleuca pljushtchi. And what to do with the family? The site is a subgenus Bryoleuca (Hampson, 1908) in the genus Bryophila (Treitschke, 1825). Oleg, if Bryoleuca separate genus that remains in Bryophila?
