Long-tailed broadbill taxonomy

The family Eurylaimidae is named after the type genus Eurylaimus. "The name means ‘broad throat’, from the Greek eurus (εὐρύς, ‘broad, wide’) and laimos (λαιμός, ‘throat’)."

The family Eurylaimidae contains eleven genera classified in four subfamilies (Smithornithinae, Pseudocalyptomeninae, Calyptomeninae and Eurylaiminae).

The subfamily Eurylaiminae has eight species under six genera (Corydon, Cymbirhynchus, Eurylaimus, Sarcophanops, Psarisomus, Serilophus) grouped under it.

The genus Psarisomus is monotypic having only species Psarisomus dalhousiae. The scientific name, Psarisomus dalhousiae, commemorates Christina Broun, Countess of Dalhousie (1786–1839) wife of General George Ramsay, 9th Earl of Dalhousie GCB (23 October 1770 – 21 March 1838).

The species was first identified by Professor Robert Jameson FRS FRSE (11 July 1774 – 19 April 1854), a Scottish naturalist and mineralogist.
