Transcription Notes:
It is probably "ospenis", which is more correctly os penis: http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/us/definition/american_english/os-penis. Latin names googled and confirmed. Spelling mistakes kept. Any not sure of are in [[?]]. Best guess given Otocosis = Otocorys alpestris = prairie horned lark
