Cracticus nigrogularis territori Mathews


Cracticus nigrogularis territori Mathews

Cracticus nigrogularis territori Mathews, 1913b: 77 (Mount Shoobridge, Northern Territory).

Now Cracticus nigrogularis picatus Gould, 1848 View in CoL . See Amadon, 1951: 10–11; 1962b: 167; Schodde and Mason, 1999: 543–544; Dickinson, 2003: 463; and Russell and Rowley, 2009: 338–339.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 673358 View Materials , adult, collected on Mount Shoobridge , 13.32S. 131.16E ( USBGN, 1957), Northern Territory, Australia, on 13 November 1894, by Knut Dahl (no. 935). From the Mathews Collection (no. 10986) via the Rothschild Collection. GoogleMaps

COMMENTS: In the original description, Mathews mentioned only the type from Mount Shoobridge, dated 13.1.1894, without giving further information on the range. He had four specimens from Mount Shoobridge, which he had received from Professor R. Collett at ZMO and had cataloged after the publication of his ‘‘Reference-list’’ ( Mathews, 1912b: 25). Two of the specimens were collected on 13 November 1894, but the original description refers to the ‘‘narrower black band on the back,’’ which eliminates the other specimen collected on that date, an immature male with no black band on the back. The holotype does not bear a Mathews type label, but Dahl’s original label is marked ‘‘type of territori’’ by Mathews. The AMNH type label was added by Amadon. The date of collection of the holotype was incorrectly cited as ‘‘ 13-1-1894 ’’ in the original description, but all four of the specimens were collected in month ‘‘11.’’ A spot check of Dahl’s specimens in AMNH revealed that he did not use Roman numerals for the month; thus, all four Mount Shoobridge specimens were collected in November.

The three paratypes of territori are: AMNH 673355 View Materials (Dahl no. 955, Mathews no. 10985), immature male, 13 November 1894 ; AMNH 673356 View Materials (958, 10984), immature male, 9 November 1894 ; AMNH 673357 View Materials (934, 10987), adult female, 6 November 1894 .

Dahl (1927: 146–150) described his stay on Mount Shoobridge.
