Collared owlet taxonomy

The family Strigidae was introduced by William Elford Leach, MD, FRS (2 February 1791 – 25 August 1836), an English zoologist and marine biologist, in a guide to the contents of the British Museum published in the year 1820.

The Strigidae is a large family comprising 189 living species in 25 genera. The genus Glaucidium consists of about 26 to 35 species and the exact number of species is under dispute.

The genus Glaucidium was first described by Friedrich Boie (4 June 1789 – 3 March 1870), a German entomologist, herpetologist, ornithologist, and lawyer, in the year 1826.

The species Glaucidium brodiei (as Noctua Brodiei) was first described by Edward Burton FRS FLS (1790 – 11 March 1867), a British Army surgeon and a zoologist, in the year 1836.

The four recognized subspecies are, Glaucidium brodiei brodiei, Glaucidium brodiei borneense, Glaucidium brodiei pardalotum and Glaucidium brodiei sylvaticum.
