(Troglodytidae; Rufous-and-white Wren T. rufalbus) Gr. θρυον thruon  reed; φιλος philos  lover; this name reflects the relationship with Thryothorus, rather than a preferred habitat; "Thryophilus: rufalbus, poliopleura, sinaloa, modestus, albipectus, galbraithi, striolatus, longirostris, castaneus, nigricapillus, schottii.   ...   THRYOPHILUS, BAIRD.   Thryophilus, BAIRD.  (Type Thryothorus rufalbus.)   ...   In the introductory remarks on the Troglodytidæ I have already alluded to a genus of American Wrens, the species of which have hitherto been included in the genus Thryothorus.  They differ, however, in having a much more distinctly notched bill, and in the peculiarly open nostrils, which seem to lack the overhanging scale or membrane of Thryothorus and Pheugopedius, leaving the nasal aperture to occupy the anterior extremity of the nasal groove, with the internal lateral septum exposed, but vertical, and extending forward to the anterior extremity of the nostril, not ending abruptly behind.  This is a peculiarity very easily appreciated in most cases.  ...  Finding, therefore, no name ready at hand for this group, I am compelled to make a new one." (Baird 1864); "Thryophilus Baird, 1864, Review Amer. Birds Mus. Smithson. Inst., I, p. 127.  Type, by original designation, Thryothorus rufalbus de La Fresnaye, 1845." (JAJ 2020).
