"Alas! the little bird trochylus maketh its nest in the jaws of the crocodile."
"trochylus" is used as a biologic epithet, for which I could not find definition. It is used not only for birds, but also for butterflies. I wonder if it is cognate with
"trochlear" the distal end of the humerus, which I think is related to "pulley".
