ANTROSTOMUS BONAPARTE, 1838  

Type species

Antrostomus carolinensis   (previously Caprimulgus carolinensis J.F. Gmelin, 1789   ).

Definition

The clade containing A. carolinensis   and all species that share a more recent common ancestor with A. carolinensis   than with Phalaenoptilus nuttallii   , or any species in the genera Nyctiphrynus   and Siphonorhis   , or with species in other nightjar genera such as Caprimulgus   , Chordeiles   , Eurostopodus   , Gactornis   , Hydropsalis   , Lyncornis   , Macrodipteryx   , Nyctidromus   , Nyctiprogne   , Podager   , and Veles   .

Included species

Antrostomus arizonae (Brewster, 1881)   , Antrostomus badius (Bangs & Peck, 1908)   , Antrostomus carolinensis (Gmelin, 1789)   , Antrostomus cubanensis (Lawrence, 1860)   , Antrostomus noctitherus (Wetmore, 1919)   , Antrostomus ridgwayi (Nelson, 1897)   , Antrostomus rufus (Boddaert, 1783)   , Antrostomus salvini ( Hartert, 1892)   , Antrostomus saturatus (Salvin, 1870)   , Antrostomus seriocaudatus (Cassin, 1849)   , and Antrostomus vociferus (Wilson, 1812)   . The inclusion of A. ekmani   , as suggested by Cleere (2010), is possible, but this study does not have data to support its split from A. cubanensis   .

Comments

Genetic evidence in this study supports the move of these 11 species from Caprimulgus   into Antrostomus   ( Han et al., 2010; Chesser et al., 2012), and demonstrates the monophyly of the genus ( Fig. 5 View Figure 5 ). This was proposed by Han et al. (2010), but this study also provides the first molecular evidence for the placement of A. cubanensis   and A. seriocaudatus   in the genus, as well as the elevation of A. v. arizonae   to full phylogenetic species status as A. arizonae   , which has already been supported by morphological and vocalization data ( Chesser et al., 2012).
