Stachyridopsis ruficeps goodsoni Rothschild  

Stachyridopsis ruficeps goodsoni Rothschild, 1903: 8   (Mt. Wuchi, Hainan).

Now Stachyris ruficeps goodsoni ( Rothschild, 1903)   . See Mackinnon and Phillipps, 2000: 436.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 589959 View Materials , adult male, collected on Wu­Zhi Shan (5 Mount Wuchi ), 188599N, 1098459E ( Times Atlas ), Hainan Island , Guangdong, China, on 24 March 1903, by Zensaku Katsumata (no. 172). From the Rothschild Collection.  

COMMENTS: Rothschild gave the date of collection of the holotype in the original description and said that he had 12 specimens. Actually 12 Wu­chi Shan specimens in addition to the holotype came to AMNH, all collected by Katsumata in March–May 1903; the above holotype is the only one collected on 24 March. The 11 paratypes are AMNH 589960–589971. The number ‘‘172’’ appears on all of Katsumata’s labels of this form; an ‘‘a’’ has been added to the ‘‘172’’ on Katsumata’s label of the holotype, but this number was not cited by Rothschild (1903: 8) or by Hartert (1920: 480). The reverse of the label is in Japanese and bears the number ‘‘182’’.

See Cibois et al. (2002) for recent molecular studies of this species.

Zosterornis pygmaeus Ogilvie­Grant   Zosterornis pygmaeus Ogilvie­Grant, 1896b: 18  

(Samar).

Now Stachyris plateni pygmaea (Ogilvie­Grant   ,

1896). See Dickinson et al., 1991: 307.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 590004 View Materials , adult female, collected at Bonga (probably near Bagacay, 128509N, 1258139E, according to Dickinson et al., 1991: 416), Samar Island , Philippines, on 2 July 1896, by John Whitehead (no. B.742). From the Rothschild Collection.  

COMMENTS: The adult male and female are alike and both were listed in the original description, but only one set of measurements was given. Later, Ogilvie­Grant (1897: 211) combined Whitehead’s Samar and Leyte birds in the same report and mentioned that Whitehead had only collected a single specimen of this form on Samar and four on Leyte ( Ogilvie­Grant, 1897: 232, pl. 6, fig. 1). Because the new forms described by Ogilvie­ Grant (1896b: 16) were said to be from Samar, I agree with Dickinson et al. (1991: 307) that the Samar specimen must be considered the holotype, contra Warren and Harrison (1971: 455). The four Leyte specimens would have been in Ogilvie­Grant’s hand when he described the form, as Whitehead returned to England with both collections in December 1896 ( Ogilvie­Grant, 1897: 211); thus, the two Leyte specimens in BMNH and two in AMNH (AMNH 590002 and 590003) are paratypes. This holotype does not bear a Rothschild type label and was not recognized as a type until its status was established in Dickinson et al. (1991: 307).

Stachyris nigriceps coltarti Harington   Stachyris nigriceps coltarti Harington, 1913: 61  

(Margherita).

Now Stachyris nigriceps coltarti Harington, 1913   .

See Grimmett et al., 1999: 761, and Robson,

2000: 458.

LECTOTYPE: AMNH 589662 View Materials , adult female, collected at Margherita , 278179N, 958409E (Times Atlas), Upper Assam, India, on 4 December 1901, by Henry N. Coltart. From the Rothschild Collection.  

COMMENTS: In the original description, the type with the above data was said to be in the Rothschild Collection. However, there are two Rothschild Collection specimens bearing these data, and Hartert (1920: 481) did not further distinguish between them in his list of Rothschild types. AMNH 589662 bears the Rothschild type label, indicating Harington’s intent to designate that specimen as the type. Because it is labeled as the type and is so cataloged at AMNH, I hereby designate AMNH 589662 the lectotype to avoid any future confusion with regard to the older literature. Paralectotypes are AMNH 589663–589668, all collected by Coltart at Margherita in November and December 1901.

See Cibois et al. (2002) for recent molecular studies of this species.

Stachyris nigriceps spadix Ripley   Stachyris nigriceps spadix Ripley, 1948: 89   (Lai­

sung, north Cachar, Assam).

Now Stachyris nigriceps coltarti Harington, 1913   .

See Ali and Ripley, 1996a: 176, Grimmett et

al., 1999: 761, and Robson, 2000: 458.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 589672 View Materials , adult female, collected at Laisung, northern Cachar , Assam, on 6 April 1895, by E.C. Stuart Baker. From the Rothschild Collection.  

COMMENTS: The AMNH number of the holotype was given in the original description. Ripley did not say how many specimens he examined, but four additional specimens collected by Baker in northern Cachar in April, May, and December 1895 are probably paratypes: AMNH 589669–58967l and 589673.

See Cibois et al. (2002) for recent molecular studies of this species.

Stachyris natunensis Hartert   Stachyris natunensis Hartert, 1894: 470 (Insula  

Bunguran).

Now Stachyris nigriceps davisoni Sharpe, 1892   .

See Hartert, 1895: 467, and Smythies and Dav­

ison, 1999: 509.

LECTOTYPE: AMNH 589701 View Materials , adult male, collected on Great Natuna Island (5 Natuna Besar or Bunguran Island), 038559N, 1088149E ( Seltzer, 1962: 714), Natuna Islands, Kalimantan, Indonesia, on 5 October 1893, by Alfred Everett. From the Rothschild Collection.  

COMMENTS: Everett collected a male and a female on Bunguran ( Hartert, 1894: 471), but no type was designated in the original de­ scription. Hartert (1920: 481) later designat­ ed the male as the ‘‘type’’ (5 lectotype). The original Everett label is marked ‘‘Type’’ and the specimen bears a Rothschild type label. The female, AMNH 589702, collected on 7 October, is the paralectotype; its label had been marked ‘‘Type of /’’, but this has been crossed out.

Deignan (1964b: 311) and Dickinson (2003: 607) recognized S. n. natunensis   . See Cibois et al. (2002) for recent molecular studies of this species.
