Comments.

Temminck did not mention the number of specimens he examined in the MNHN. The only two MNHN specimens were a male and a female ( MNHN Laboratory, ZMO-GalOis 3). The two syntypes are also the syntypes of Muscicapa cyanea  Vieillot 1818, making it an objective junior synonym, but Vieillot’s name has been suppressed (Anon. 1956). The type locality is restricted to: West-Timor, near Kupang Bay (article 76a.2.A (ICZN 1999)). Temminck named this species hyacinthina  or 'hyacinthine/like the hyacinth’ ( Jobling 2017).
