The currently accepted citation for Gymnoris: J.E. Gray, 1831, is shown to be fundamentally erroneous. The first valid citation is that of Blyth in 1845. However the nominal type species’ name is preoccupied, and the nomen novum of Fringilla xanthocollis E. Burton, 1838, should be associated with it. The correct citation is given in full.
