Corvonirmus hamatofasciatus ( Piaget, 1890) 

Docophorus hamatofasciatus Piaget, 1890: 225  .

Philopterus hamatofasciatus Piaget, 1888  [sic]; Harrison 1916: 96.

Brüelia hamatofasciata ( Piaget, 1890)  ; Hopkins & Clay 1952: 56.

Brueelia hamatofasciata ( Piaget, 1890)  ; Ansari 1956a: 402.

Type host: Penelopides manillae (Boddaerts, 1783)  —Luzon hornbill.

Type locality: None given in the original description.

Remarks. Mey (2017: 116) regards Co. hamatofasciatus  as a species inquirenda within Corvonirmus  , and questions whether Ansari (1956a) examined the same specimen as Piaget (1890) did for his original description. Piaget (1890) examined only one female specimen of Co. hamatofasciatus  , which is now in the collection of the Museum of Natural History, London ( Thompson 1938). That specimen, the holotype, examined by both Ansari (1956a) and Gustafsson & Bush (2017: 418, but listed as “ Lectotype ”) is a Corvonirmus  , and can also be identified as such in the illustrations provided by Ansari (1956a). The differences between the illustrations of Piaget (1890) and Ansari (1956a) can be attributed to the fact that these authors were not detailed illustrators. In our opinion, Co. hamatofasciatus  is not a species inquirenda.
