PARADOXORNITHIDAE Paradoxornis webbianus intermedius Delacour and Jabouille

Paradoxornis webbianus intermedius Delacour

and Jabouille, 1930: 395 (Chapa ( Tonkin), al­

titude: 1.600 mètres).

Now Paradoxornis webbianus yunnanensis (La

Touche, 1921). See Deignan, 1964c: 435, Han,

1991: 122, Cheng, 1993: 109, and Dickinson,

2003: 623.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 292192 View Materials , adult male, collected at Cha Pa , 228209N, 1038509E (Times Atlas), Vietnam, on 16 December 1929, by Jean Delacour and Pierre Jabouille (no. 2848).

COMMENTS: The field number of the holotype was cited in the original description, and the authors examined seven males, five females, and one sex? from Chapa. Of the 12 paratypes, three males, one female, and one sex? came to AMNH: AMNH 291454– 291458.

See Bock (1994: 206–207) for use of Paradoxornithidae rather than Panuridae . Paradoxornis is treated in the tribe Timaliini , subfamily Sylviinae , by Sibley and Monroe (1990: 645); it is placed in the family Timaliidae by Dickinson (2003: 622).

Suthora fulvifrons albifacies Mayr and Birckhead (in Birckhead), 1937: 15 (Lichiang Range, Yunnan (11,000 ft. )).

Now Paradoxornis fulvifrons albifacies (Mayr and Birckhead, 1937) . See Cheng, 1987: 755, and MacKinnon and Phillipps, 2000: 460–461.

COMMENTS: The AMNH number of the holotype was cited in the original description, and the authors noted that they had examined 24 specimens. However, specimens were borrowed from many museums ( Birckhead, 1937: 1) and only seven paratypes are in AMNH: AMNH 679970–679975 View Materials , George Forrest specimens collected in the Lichiang Range, in Tengyueh , and on the Shweli­Salwin Divide , Yunnan ; and AMNH 292063 View Materials , female, from Nda­mucho, Yunnan, collected in October 1929 by Joseph F. Rock. The latter specimen was exchanged to AMNH by USNM (no. 314492) in September 1930 .

The Lijiang Range is north of the town of Lijiang, 268519N, 1008169E (Times Atlas); see maps in Cowan (1952) and LeCroy and Dickinson (2001: 196–197).
