The next in order of dateai)pears tt) be C. siniiatus Wagleh, Isis, 1829. p. 748, based on Mexican specimens; this Iam willing to adopt, in deference to my colleagues of the A. 0. U., though my well-knowncontention has long been in favor of Bartram. Other names are C luguhris of Agassiz, 1846,denounced as a nomen nudum, though nobody doubts what he meant by it; and C. catototl orcacalotl of Bonaparte, 1838 and 1850, and of Baird, 1858 (after Wagler, Isis, 1831, p. 748).For the case of C littoralis or principalis, see next article. C. c. principalis. (Lat. principal, foremost, chief; princeps, adj. first in time or order,and as noun a chief, a prince; from primus, first, and capere, to take, choose. Fig. 32G.)Northern Raven.

Tlie large uortherubird of Greenland and Labrador was first named C. c. littoralis by IIoLBOLL, in Kriiyers Tiilsk.iv, 1843, p. 390; but this name is preoccupied in the genus by A. E. Brehm, 1831. It is C. c.principalis Ridow. Man. 1887, p. 301; Coues, Key, 4th ed. 1890, p. 901; A. O. U. List, 2ded. 1895, p. 200, No. 486 a.
