crassa   may prove to be conspecific with Napothera brevicaudata   .

Turdinulus roberti hainanus Hartert  

Turdinulus roberti hainanus Hartert, 1910c: 230 (Mt. Wuchi)   .

Now Napothera epilepidota hainana (Hartert, 1910)   . See Cheng, 1987: 654, and MacKinnon and Phillipps, 2000: 432–433.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 589408 View Materials , adult male, collected on Wu­Zhi Shan (5 Mount Wuchi ), 188599N, 1098459E ( Times Atlas ), Hainan Island, Guangdong, China, on 25 April 1903, by Zensaku Katsumata (no. 171) for Alan Owston. From the Rothschild Collection.  

COMMENTS: Hartert, in the original description, noted that he had three males and one female collected on Wu­Zhi Shan in March and April 1903. He designated as type the only male collected on 25 April. The number 171 that appears on all of the labels is Katsumata’s number for the species. Paratypes are AMNH 589409 and 589410, males collected on 28 March 1903, and AMNH 589411, female collected on 25 March 1903.

Turdinulus humei Hartert  

Turdinulus humei Hartert, 1902d: 564 (Gunong Tahan)   .

Now Napothera epilepidota granti (Richmond, 1900)   . See Hartert, 1920: 481, and Robson, 2000: 456.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 589382 View Materials , adult male, collected on Gunong Tahan , 1500 ft, 048349N, 1028179E (Times Atlas), Pahang, Malaysia, in September 1901, by Johannes Waterstradt. From the Rothschild Collection.  

COMMENTS: In the original description, Hartert noted that Waterstradt sent only one specimen to Rothschild. A second specimen, in BMNH, collected by Hume at Klang, Selangor, Malaysia, was listed as belonging to his new form and is a paratype.

Turdinulus exsul Sharpe  

Turdinulus exsul Sharpe, 1888: 479   (Kina Balu, North Borneo).

Now Napothera epilepidota exsul ( Sharpe, 1888)   . See Smythies and Davison, 1999: 506.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 589375 View Materials , adult male, collected on Kinabalu, 4000 ft, 068039N,  

1168329E (Times Atlas), Sabah, Malaysia, on 10 May 1888, by John Whitehead (no. 2581). From the Rothschild Collection.

COMMENTS: Whitehead (in Sharpe and Whitehead, 1889: 418) said that he obtained only two specimens, a male and a female. In the original description, Sharpe described only the male, and thus it is the holotype. However, on an earlier page, Sharpe (1888: 478) had noted that Whitehead had returned ‘‘with the rest of his collection’’, thus indicating that he had both specimens in hand when he described exsul   (ICZN, 1999: 76, Art. 72.4.1.1). Thus, I consider the female, AMNH 589376, the paratype.
