I have just updated my bird sightings software, which is based on the latest Clements list. I have been checking the listings and discovered in the species entries there are holes where Scarlet Honeyeater Myzomela sanguinolenta should be. It seems I now have to call it Scarlet Myzomela. I referred to the Clements site at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and their overview of updates and corrections they mention that they have updated their data for Australia, Based on Birds Australia's checklist, with a link to it. In the BA checklist M. sanguinolenta is still given the common name of Scarlet Honeyeater.

Can anyone throw some light on what name we should actually use?
