Babax waddelli jomo Vaurie  

Babax waddelli jomo Vaurie, 1955: 5   (below Tsechen (Tsechen is about 4 miles south of Gyangtse)).

Now Babax waddelli jomo Vaurie, 1955   . See Dickinson, 2003: 612.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 586805 View Materials , unsexed adult, collected below Tsechen , ca. 4 miles S of Chiang­tzu (5 Gyangtse), 288569N, 898359E ( Vaurie, 1972a: 353), Tibet, on 4 June 1905, by Captain R. Steen. From the Rothschild Collection.  

COMMENTS: The AMNH number of the holotype was cited in the original description. Vaurie (1955: 5) noted that B. w. jomo was known only from the region of Gyangtse. There is a single paratype in AMNH: AMNH 586806, unsexed, collected below Tsechen on 27 May 1905 by Steen. Other paratypes may be in BMNH.

Vaurie (1972a: 65–67) gave information about Captain Steen and ornithological collecting in Tibet at that time.

Garrulax schistochlamys Sharpe   Garrulax schistochlamys Sharpe, 1888: 479   ( Kina 

Balu).

Now Garrulax palliatus schistochlamys Sharpe,  

1888. See Smythies and Davison, 1999: 514.

LECTOTYPE: AMNH 587085 View Materials , adult male, collected on Kinabalu , 4000 ft, 068039N, 1168329E (Times Atlas), Sabah, Malaysia, on 15 May 1888, by John Whitehead (no. 2538). From the Rothschild Collection.  

COMMENTS: In his original description, Sharpe did not designate a type and gave neither the sex nor the number of his specimens. Later, Sharpe (in Sharpe and Whitehead, 1889: 411) listed a male and a female collected on 14 May 1888 and a male collected on 15 May 1888. Hartert (1920: 487) designated as lectotype Whitehead’s number 2538, the male collected on 15 May 1888, the specimen being marked ‘‘Type RBS’’ in Sharpe’s hand. Three additional specimens are in AMNH: AMNH 587088 (Whitehead no. 2537), female collected on 14 May, is a paralectotype; and AMNH 587086 (2536) and AMNH 587087 (2535) are both males collected on 14 May and are both probably paralectotypes, although Sharpe (in Sharpe and Whitehead, 1889: 411) listed only one male collected on 14 May. Because these specimens were all collected near the end of Whitehead’s stay on Kinabalu and have consecutive field numbers, it is likely that Sharpe had them all in hand when he described G. schistochlamys   .

Allocotops calvus Sharpe   Allocotops calvus Sharpe, 1888: 389   (Kina Balu). Now Garrulax lugubris calvus ( Sharpe, 1888)   .

See Smythies and Davison, 1999: 514.

LECTOTYPE: AMNH 586830 View Materials , adult male, collected on Kinabalu , 4000 ft, 068039N, 1168329E (Times Atlas), Sabah, Malaysia, on 27 March 1888, by John Whitehead (no. 2321). From the Rothschild Collection.  

COMMENTS: In his original description, Sharpe did not designate a type or say how many specimens he had but described male, female, and young male. Sharpe (in Sharpe and Whitehead, 1889: 413) listed two males, two females, and a young male, collected in March 1888 on Kinabalu. Hartert (1920: 487) designated as the lectotype Whitehead’s specimen no. 2321, which is marked ‘‘Type RBS’’ in Sharpe’s hand. Paralectotypes are: AMNH 586831 (Whitehead no. 2265), adult male, 21 March; AMNH 586832 (2226), young male, 16 March; AMNH 586833 (2248), adult female, 19 March; and AMNH 586834 (2235), adult female, 18 March. This latter specimen was also marked ‘‘Type RBS’’, indicating that Sharpe had considered it the type of the female.

The genus Allocotops   was also described at this time by Sharpe (1888: 389). Sibley and Monroe (1990: 627) conferred species rank on calvus   .
