Pnoepyga squamata magnirostris Rothschild  

Pnoepyga squamata magnirostris Rothschild, 1925: 297   (Shweli Valley, 7,000 ft.).

Now Pnoepyga albiventer albiventer (Hodgson, 1837)   . See Rothschild, 1926b: 249, Cheng, 1987: 655, and MacKinnon and Phillipps, 2000: 433.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 573660 View Materials , adult female, collected in the Shweli Valley , 7000 ft, Yunnan, China, in November 1924, by George Forrest (no. 5819). From the Rothschild Collection.  

COMMENTS: In the original description, Rothschild stated that he had a single female, and later that it was the only known specimen ( Rothschild, 1926b: 249, under Pnoepyga albiventer magnirostris   ). Deignan (1964b: 293) noted that Microura squamata Gould, 1837   was a nomen oblitum. Pnoepyga Hodgson, 1844   , became the next available generic name, and Zimmer and Vaurie (1954: 40–41) designated albiventer   as the type species. P. a. magnirostris is now considered a synonym of the nominate race. For a discussion of the types of taxa named by Rothschild, based on specimens collected by Forrest in Yunnan and a map of the area, see LeCroy and Dickinson (2001).
