Etymology. The replacement name has the same origin, but here I use the spelling which hews more closely to the Greek: Ὠρeίθυια. For Orithyia the usual primary stress in English is on the “y” (although this departs from both the Greek and the Latin, through which this spelling comes). For Oreithyia, primary stress on the diphthong “ei” (pronounced ī) would be proper, but by retaining stress on the “y” the phonetic similarity to Corytophanes remains. 
New constraints on the evolution of the snake clades Ungaliophiinae, Loxocemidae and Colubridae (Serpentes), with comments on the fossil history of erycine boids in North America
The past assignment of most North American Paleogene taxa to Erycinae (sand boas) is further undone in this work; there is no well-founded record of an erycine in North America prior to the Miocene.
