Taxonomic Swap 107791 (Committed on 2022-03-23)

In accord with AOS-SACC (Proposals 780 and 781) and AOS-NACC (Chesser et al. 2020b), the sequence of hummingbirds in the group previously listed between Chlorostilbon and Hylocharis is revised, based primarily on McGuire et al. (2014) and Hernández-Baños et al. (2020). In accord with AOS-NACC (Chesser et al. 2020b), change the scientific name of White-bellied Emerald from Amazilia candida to Chlorestes candida, based on genetic evidence that the traditional genus Amazilia is not monophyletic (McGuire et al. 2014), and that White-bellied Emerald belongs to a disparate group of species for which the oldest available genus name is Chlorestes (Stiles et al. 2017a, b).
