These specimens, including the holotype, were found in Mathews’ catalog under the following numbers: 2530– 2541, 6289–6290, and 8410–8411. Other specimens were either cataloged after the publication of the description or were never in the Mathews Collection .

The ICZN (2009: 375–378) has voted to conserve the specific name cyanoleucus and reject the specific name picata in reference to this species.


Schodde et al. (2013: 238–244) have submitted to the ICZN an application to conserve Corcoracidae as the valid name of this family based on its prevailing usage in relevant literature. Until a decision is reached by the Commission, the name Corcoracidae is to be used (ICZN, 1999: 96, Art. 82.1).
