<[Scolopax] totanus [as Totanus] Linnaeus,1758,Systema Naturae,editio decima,tom.1,p.145;based on "Totanus" of Gesner,1617-21 et al. ("Habitat in Europa",restricted type locality, Sweden,ex Fauna Svecica,p.149.)
>Totanus Bechstein,1803,Ornithologisches Taschenbuch von und für Deutschland,2,p.282.Type,by tautonymy,Totanus maculatus Bechstein = Scolopax totanus Linnaeus.
>Note:Totanus contains only T.totanus.

#Tringa totanus britannica {br.nUnited Kingdom:Orkneys.Shetlands,nwFrance}
<Tringa totanus britannica Mathews,1935,British Birds,29,p.152.New Name for Tringa totanus bewickii Ticehurst,1932 (see note below). ("England" and "southern England,restricted to Yarmouth,Norfolk by Clancy,1947,Ibis,p.511.)
Note1#:Hale,1971,Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society,50,pp.199-268 considered the British breeding population of Redshank as a hybrid swarm between the Icelandic and W European breeding populations.However,Engelmoer & Roselaar,1998,Geographical
#(ctd): Variation in Waders,p.242 stated:"Our data showed large size differences from both Icelandic and N Fennoscandian populations.Since we do not agree with the hybrdisation criteria postulated by Hale,it was impossible to follow his classification.
#(ctd): We therefore re-introduce britannica for the breeding populations of the Netherlands,Germany,Denmark, the S Baltic and S and E England." Here we follow Delany & Scott,2002,Waterbird Population Estimates,p.173 in restricting the breeding range of
#(ctd): britannica to Britain and Ireland, also wintering in NW France.
Note2<:According to Vaurie,1965,The Birds of the Palearctic Fauna,Non-Passerines,p.410,fn 1,"Ticehurst...adopted for [the birds breeding in Britain] the name Totanus Beweckii of Rennie,but it has been shown that Rennie's bird was a Ruff (Philomachus
(ctd<): pugnax, not Tringa totanus."
