Fulvous-dotted Treerunner is very misleading: the bird's basic color is only vaguely fulvous, actually a more rich rufous, but the dots themselves are startlingly white. We prefer our newly coined but far more evocative name of Star-chested Treerunner." Ridgely & Greenfield (2001) also used "Star-chested," but Remsen (2003) stuck with "Fulvous-dotted." Analysis: This is another of many, many proposals we need to consider on English names. More
