Paradisaea apoda salvadorii Mayr and Rand, 1935: 11 (Vanumai, Central Division, Territory of Papua).

Now Paradisaea raggiana raggiana Sclater, 1873 View in CoL . See Mayr, 1962d: 199; Gilliard, 1969: 222–229; Coates, 1990: 508–516; Cracraft, 1992: 34–35; Frith and Beehler, 1998: 456–469; and Frith and Frith, 2009b: 488.

COMMENTS: Mayr and Rand cited the AMNH catalog number of the holotype in the original description and listed their type series. Paratypes of salvadorii: Veimauri, Galley Reach, AMNH 295732 View Materials , male immature, 17 August 1920, collected by J.T. Zimmer (no. 1765) ; Cloudy Bay, AMNH 295734 View Materials , male immature, 6 January 1921, collected by J.T. Zimmer (2035) ; Vanuamai , AMNH 330367 View Materials , 330368 View Materials , adult males, both 13 June 1929, collected by Hannibal Hamlin (37297, 37295) ; Deva Deva , AMNH 330377 View Materials , adult male, 25 May 1929, collected by Hannibal Hamlin (–) ; Wuroi, Oriomo River , AMNH 422205–422208 View Materials , two adult males, one immature male, one female, 18 January–4 February 1934, collected by R. Archbold and A.L. Rand on the 1933–1934 Archbold Expedition. Most authors have recognized salvadorii, but Cracraft (1992: 34) synonymized salvadorii with raggiana , saying that ‘‘differences vary, probably clinally, over a large geographic area.’’ This appears to be correct .

Hannibal Hamlin collected these specimens while waiting for repairs to be made to the Whitney Expedition ship, France. The ornithological results of the Archbold Expedition were published by Mayr and Rand (1937) and included mention of the Hamlin and Zimmer collections on pages 1 and 2. A summary of the 1933–1934 expedition was provided by Archbold and Rand (1935).
