Genera are a little more tricky than species when resolving validity or
just generally tracking. There seems to be ample info on the species
involved via BHL etc, and it might be a tad unrealistic Rod to expect 100%
resolution/agreement in these matters without needing application of some
taxonomic intelligence to what shows up. At the birdwatcher level
probably they don't take too much notice of an ongoing conflict in genera
names between mega databases who (sadly & too frequently) may not provide
any sources to support their name choices.
Another database still using Granatina granatina is the online 'Handbook
of the Birds of the World'
