Cracticus hypoleucus intermedius Mathews


Cracticus hypoleucus intermedius Mathews

Cracticus hypoleucus intermedius Mathews, 1912a: 373 (New South Wales).

Now considered an intergrade between Gymnorhina tibicen tyrannica View in CoL and G. t. tibicen View in CoL or undifferentiated from them. See Amadon, 1951: 21–22; 1962b: 169; Schodde and Mason, 1999: 545–550; Hughes et al., 2001: 25–34; Dickinson, 2003: 463; Toon et al., 2003: 337– 343; 2007: 2525–2547; and Russell and Rowley, 2009: 339–340.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 673093 View Materials , adult male, collected at Cooma , 36.15S, 149.07E (Times Atlas ), New South Wales, Australia, in June 1896, by an unknown collector. From the Mathews Collection (no. 7067) via the Rothschild Collection. GoogleMaps

COMMENTS: In the original description, Mathews cited his catalog number of the holotype and gave the type locality and the range as ‘‘ New South Wales.’’ The holotype bears the collecting locality ‘‘Cooma’’ on the original label. In addition the specimen bears Mathews and Rothschild type labels and a Mathews ‘‘Figured’’ label, indicating that the specimen was the model for Mathews (1923b: pl. 483, lower fig., opp. p. 337; text p. 351). In treating this form, Mathews placed it in a separate species, Gymnorhina hypoleuca , and noted that the above specimen was the type of intermedius . However, the species in the plate is labeled G. leuconota . Paratypes are: Bathurst, AMNH 673090 (Mathews no. 7068), male, May 1893, AMNH 673091 (7069), female, May 1883; Cooma, AMNH 673092 (7066), male, June 1896; New South Wales, AMNH 673096 (2564), male, December 1889, AMNH 673097 (2563), male, undated. Collectors of these specimens are unknown.

For a discussion of the identity of the type of intermedius , see Schodde and Mason (1999: 548). Hughes et al. (2001) and Toon et al., (2003, 2007) found no differentiation among this form, G. t. tibicen and G. t. tyrannica in selected DNA sequences.
