Slender-billed gull taxonomy

The family Laridae includes around 100 species arranged into 23 genera.

"Most of these birds were placed in the genus Larus, but this arrangement is now known to be polyphyletic, leading to the resurrection of the genera Ichthyaetus, Chroicocephalus, Leucophaeus, Saundersilarus, and Hydrocoloeus."

The genus Chroicocephalus contains medium and small birds, comprising eleven living species and one extinct species, Chroicocephalus utunui.

The eleven species are Chroicocephalus novaehollandiae, Chroicocephalus hartlaubii, Chroicocephalus saundersi, Chroicocephalus maculipennis, Chroicocephalus cirrocephalus, Chroicocephalus serranus, Chroicocephalus bulleri, Chroicocephalus brunnicephalus, Chroicocephalus ridibundus, Chroicocephalus genei and Chroicocephalus philadelphia.

The genus name Chroicocephalus is from Ancient Greek khroizo, "to color", and cephalus is from Kephalē (Greek: κεφαλή) literally means "head" in ancient Greek. The species name genei commemorates Italian naturalist Carlo Giuseppe Géné (7 December 1800 – 14 July 1847).
