Manucodiacus asymmetricus  papuanus Mey, 2017 

Manucodiacus asymmetricus  papuanus Mey, 2017: 140  , pl. X: figs 1–2.

Manucodicola asymmetrica papuana ( Mey, 2017)  . New combination, species subspecies inquirenda.

Type host: Manucodia chalybaeus (Forster, 1871)  —Crinkle-collared manucode.

Type locality: “ Hinterland des Sattelberges bei Finschhafen ”, Papua New Guinea  .

Remarks. Considering that both Manucodiacus asymmetricus  papuanus  and Manucodicola semiramisae Gustafsson & Bush, 2017  have two sternal plates anterior to the subgenital plate, it is possible that M. a. papuanus  is a junior synonym of Mn. semiramisae  . However, the absence of other illustrations of M. a. papuanus  makes it difficult to confirm such synonymy; therefore, we consider this taxon a species subspecies inquirenda.
