Archboldia papuensis sanfordi Mayr and Gilliard View in CoL

Archboldia papuensis sanfordi Mayr and Gilliard, 1950: 1 View in CoL (southwestern slope of Mount Hagen, 4 miles west of Tomba, Central Highlands, Mandated Territory of New Guinea; altitude 8500 feet).

Now Archboldia papuensis sanfordi Mayr and Gilliard, 1950 View in CoL . See Mayr and Gilliard, 1954: 362–363, pl. 13; Gilliard, 1969: 281–293; Coates, 1990: 385–391; and Frith and Frith, 2004: 300– 302; 2009a: 396.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 348448 View Materials , adult male, collected on the southwestern slope of Mount Hagen , 05.52S, 144.13E ( Frith and Beehler,1998: 569), 4 mi. west of Tomba (= 5 mi. west of Base Camp , as on label), 8500 ft, Western Highlands Province, Papua New Guinea (formerly the Central Highlands of the Mandated Territory of New Guinea), on 18 July 1950, by E. Thomas Gilliard. GoogleMaps

COMMENTS: The AMNH number of the holotype was cited in the original description and measurements were given for three adult males and one adult female. As mentioned in the original description, Gilliard was allowed by the Australian authorities to bring these four specimens to the AMNH on his return, the remainder of the specimens of this form being shipped with the rest of his 1950 collection. Using the measurements given, I was unable to determine which three specimens are paratypes. A total of 11 specimens were collected, with the 10 in addition to the holotype cataloged as AMNH 705703– 705707, 705707bis, 705708–705711, six adult males, one immature male, two females, one female?, near Base Camp, Mount Hagen, 8500–10,000 ft., 12–22 July 1950. AMNH 705708 was sent to AM in 1953. See Mayr and Gilliard (1954) for a report on the collections made on Gilliard’s 1950 and 1952 expeditions.
