Formicaphagus rhamphasti ( Carriker, 1903) 

Nirmus rhamphasti Carriker, 1903: 135  .

Degeeriella rhamphasti ( Carriker, 1903)  ; Harrison, 1916: 122. Brueelia rhamphasti ( Carriker, 1903)  ; Hopkins & Clay, 1952: 60. Formicaphagus grallariae Carriker, 1957: 426  .

Sturnidoecus rhamphasti ( Carriker, 1903)  ; Carriker [in Emerson], 1967: 106. Formicaphagus rhamphasti ( Carriker, 1903)  ; Price et al. 2003: 180.

Type host. Ramphastos tocard  = Ramphastos swainsonii Gould, 1833  [Ref.: Emerson 1981]—chestnut-mandibles toucan.

Remarks. Emerson (1981) examined the type material of Nirmus rhamphasti  and compared it to the type material of Formicaphagus grallariae  , which he determined to be a junior synonym of Nirmus rhamphasti  . Price et al. (2003: 180) followed Emerson (1981) regarding Nirmus rhamphasti  as a valid species of Formicaphagus  and listed F. grallariae  as a junior synonym of the former. Mey & Barker (2014: 93, 100) argued that Nirmus rhamphasti Carriker 1903  should be placed in Sturnidoecus  . We have not examined any material of this species, but include it here because it has been associated by various authors with genera we recognized as belonging to the Brueelia  - complex.
