Lioptila robinsoni Rothschild  

Lioptila robinsoni Rothschild, 1921: 38   (Dalat, S. Annam).

Now Heterophasia melanoleuca robinsoni (Rothschild, 1921)   . See Inskipp et al., 1996: 191, and Dickinson, 2003: 621.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 590908 View Materials , adult male, collected at Da Lat, 5000 ft, 118569N, 1088259E (Times Atlas), Langbiang Plateau , Vietnam, on 4 April 1918, by Cecil Boden Kloss. From the Rothschild Collection.  

COMMENTS: Rothschild , in the original description, designated his single male, number 224, as the holotype   ; this number appears on the Rothschild type label. On the Boden Kloss label, the number 224 appears as the ‘‘T[otal] L[ength]’’ measurement. Of the six males and six females that Boden Kloss had collected in Vietnam, Rothschild received only one of each sex. Nevertheless , he included in the description of robinsoni   the measurements of the entire series as given by Robinson and Boden Kloss (1919: 586, listed as Malacias desgodinsi   ). Thus , the remaining 10 specimens would also be part of the type series. The female received by Rothschild is the only paratype in AMNH: AMNH 590909 View Materials , female from Langbiang Peaks, 6000–7500 ft, 20 April 1918   .

Robson (2000: 469) included robinsoni   as a subspecies of the separate species H. desgodinsi   , and Sibley and Monroe (1990: 643) considered robinsoni   as possibly deserving species status.
