Apologies - By the time i'd uploaded my ID and refreshed the page your ID was already in.
I think my ID is a synonym ??
However - Info taken from
http://www.birdlife.org/datazone/speciesfactsheet.php?id=32601

Cecropis doesnt appear to be listed here, although other sites obviously do.
Are they one and the same ?

They are indeed the same, the new name is fairly recent. It can at times be difficult to keep up, check out some of the new names for some of tits and gulls.
