Fulvetta vinipectus perstriata Mayr  

Fulvetta vinipectus perstriata Mayr   [in Stanford and Mayr], 1941a: 79 (Chawngmawhka, 9500 ft., Burma­Yunnan border).

Now Alcippe vinipectus perstriata (Mayr, 1941)   . See Smythies, 1986: 309, and Robson, 2000: 466.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 305837 View Materials , adult male, collected at Chawngmawhka , 9500 ft, northern Myanmar, on 19 January 1939, on the Vernay­Cutting Burma Expedition (no. 620).  

COMMENTS: Mayr gave the AMNH number of the holotype in the original description and noted that he examined 29 specimens from the mountains between the Irrawaddy and Salween rivers, including Tengyueh and the Salween­Shweli Divide. The 28 paratypes are AMNH 306761–306781 and 590043–590049.

An itinerary of this expedition is given in Stanford and Mayr (1940: 680–686) and in Anthony (1941). The expedition collected in the area of the Chimeli Pass from 14 January to 13 February and collected this subspecies in the Chawngmaw Valley in January ( Stanford and Mayr, 1940: 682). Chimeli Pass is shown on the map and described in Anthony (1941: 41, 45).

Alcippe vinipectus valentinae Delacour and Jabouille  

Alcippe vinipectus valentinae Delacour and Jabouille, 1930: 401   (Fan­si­pan, Chapa ( Tonkin), altitude: 2.800 m.).

Now Alcippe vinipectus valentinae Delacour and Jabouille, 1930   . See Hennache and Dickinson, 2000: 620, and Robson, 2000: 466.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 292188 View Materials , adult male, collected on Fan Si Pan , 228199N, 1038469E (Times Atlas), Vietnam, on 13 December 1929, by Jean Delacour and Pierre Jabouille (no. 2729).  

COMMENTS: The type series comprised three males and three females, and the field number of the holotype was cited in the original description. Of the five paratypes, two are in AMNH: AMNH 290646, female, 2 December 1929, and AMNH 290647, male?, 1 December 1929, both collected on Fan Si Pan.

Proparus striaticollis yunnanensis Rothschild  

Proparus striaticollis yunnanensis Rothschild   ,

1922: 11 (Mekong­Salwin Divide).

Now Alcippe cinereiceps manipurensis   (Ogilvie­

Grant, 1906). See Deignan, 1964b: 402, Cheng,

1987: 727, and MacKinnon and Phillipps, 2000:

448.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 590118 View Materials , adult male, collected on the Mekong­Salwin Divide , 10,000 ft, Yunnan, China, on 26 August (not September) 1921, by George Forrest (no. 475). From the Rothschild Collection.  

COMMENTS: In the original description, Rothschild noted that he had a male and a female specimen, designating the male as type. The female paratype did not come to AMNH with the Rothschild Collection and has not been found in the BMNH either (M. Walters, personal commun.). In both the original description and in Rothschild (1923: 45) the male was listed as having been collected in September; it is given as 26/8/21 on the Forrest label and was corrected without comment by Hartert (1928: 217). A collecting latitude of 28859N was given on the Forrest label. See LeCroy and Dickinson (2001: 191) for a discussion of this type.

Seltzer (1962: 1180) gave the Chinese name of the Mekong River as ‘‘Lantsang Chiang (or Kiang)’’ and the Salween (5 Salwin) River as ‘‘Lu Chiang or Nu Chiang’’ ( Seltzer, 1962: 1655–1656). These names are rendered by Cheng (1987: 727) as ‘‘Lancang’’ and ‘‘Nujiang’’ rivers.

Alcippe ruficapillus   [sic] tonkinensis Delacour and Jabouille

Alcippe ruficapillus   [sic] tonkinensis Delacour and Jabouille, 1930: 402 (Fan­si­pan, Chapa ( Tonkin), altitude: 2.800 mètres).

Now Alcippe cinereiceps tonkinensis Delacour and Jabouille, 1930   . See Robson, 2000: 466, and Hennache and Dickinson, 2000: 620.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 292187 View Materials , adult male, collected on Fan Si Pan , 2800 m, 228199N, 1038469E (Times Atlas), Vietnam, on 24 November 1929, by Jean Delacour and Pierre Jabouille (no. 1553).  

COMMENTS: The field number of the holotype was cited in the original description and the type series was said to consist of six males, three females, and three unsexed. Of the 11 paratypes, four came to AMNH: AMNH 290626 View Materials , male, AMNH 290627 View Materials , female, and AMNH 290628 View Materials , unsexed, from Lo­qui­Ho   ; and AMNH 290629 View Materials , female, from Fan Si Pan   .

Alcippe collaris Walden  

Alcippe collaris Walden, 1874: 156   (Sudya, Upper Assam).

Now Alcippe rufogularis collaris Walden, 1874   . See Ali and Ripley, 1996b: 119.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 590216 View Materials , adult male, collected at Sadiya (5 Sudya), 278499N, 958389E (Times Atlas), Assam, India, on 12 January 1874, by Surgeon­Major F. Day. From the Rothschild Collection.  

COMMENTS: Walden based his original description on a male specimen with the above data. Hartert (1920: 481) commented that this specimen was purchased by Rothschild with the Elwes Collection.

Proparus brunnea   [sic]

argutus Hartert

Proparus brunnea   [sic] argutus Hartert, 1910c: 231 (Mt. Wuchi).

Now Alcippe brunnea arguta (Hartert, 1910)   . See Cheng, 1987: 730, MacKinnon and Phillips, 2000: 449, and Dickinson, 2003: 619.

LECTOTYPE: AMNH 590147 View Materials , adult male, collected on Wu­Zhi Shan (5 Mt. Wuchi ), 188599N, 1098459E ( Times Atlas ), Hainan Island, Guangdong, China, on 25 March 1903, by Zensaku Katsumata for Alan Owston. From the Rothschild Collection.  

COMMENTS: In the original description, Hartert designated as type a male collected on 25 March 1903 on Mt. Wuchi. Three specimens bearing those data came to AMNH with the Rothschild Collection and must therefore be considered syntypes. Hartert (1920: 481) did not further distinguish among them when he published on the types in the Rothschild Collection. AMNH 590147 bears the Rothschild type label, was so cataloged when the Rothschild Collection came to AMNH, and its status has apparently nev­ er been questioned. Therefore, to avoid possible confusion in interpreting the older literature, I hereby formally designate AMNH 590147 the lectotype of Proparus brunnea   [sic] argutus. The two additional syntypes become paralectotypes: AMNH 590148 and 590149, both males collected on 25 March 1903 on Mt. Wuchi. Other specimens in the original series have no nomenclatural standing.

Alcippe haringtoniae Hartert  

Alcippe haringtoniae Hartert, 1909d: 10   (Bhamo, Upper Burma).

Now Alcippe poioicephala haringtoniae Hartert, 1909   . See Smythies, 1986: 307, and Robson, 2000: 467.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 589596 View Materials , adult male, collected at Bhamo , 248159N, 978159E (Times Atlas), Myanmar, on 29 March 1909, by Col. Herbert H. Harington. From the Rothschild Collection.  

COMMENTS: In the original description, Hartert gave the date of collection of the male type as 29 March 1909. The above specimen is the only male in the type series collected on that date. There are two paratypes: AMNH 589597 and 589598.

This subspecies was named in honor of Mrs. Harington.

Proparus nipalensis rufescentior Hartert  

Proparus nipalensis rufescentior Hartert, 1910c: 231 (Mt. Wuchi)   .

Now Alcippe morrisonia rufescentior (Hartert, 1910)   . See Cheng, 1987: 734, and MacKinnon and Phillipps, 2000: 450.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 589558 View Materials , adult male, collected on Wu­Zhi Shan (5 Mt. Wuchi ), 188599N, 1098459E ( Times Atlas ), Hainan Island, Guangdong, China, on 28 March 1903, by Zensaku Katsumata for Alan Owston. From the Rothschild Collection.  

COMMENTS: In the original description, Hartert gave the number of the holotype as ‘‘103a’’. All of the Hainan specimens of this taxon are numbered ‘‘103’’ on the English side of the Owston label, but only the holotype has had the number ‘‘103a’’ added to the Rothschild Collection label. Hartert’s type series comprised 11 males and females from Mt. Wuchi, two males from Lei Mui Mon, and two males (not females as listed by Hartert) from No Tai. The 14 paratypes are AMNH 589559–589572.

The Rothschild type label bears the number ‘‘159’’. This number appears on the Japanese side of the Owston label on all but one of the Mt. Wuchi specimens, with that label having the number ‘‘177’’   ; specimens from No Tai and Lei Mui Mon are numbered ‘‘91’’. These numbers may refer to individual collectors, as Katsumata may have had field assistants.
