Pomatostomus innominatus Mathews  

Pomatostomus innominatus Mathews, 1924b: 223   (Point Torment, West Kimberley, North­west Australia).

Now Pomatostomus temporalis rubeculus (Gould, 1840)   . See Mees, 1961: 111–113, and Schodde and Mason, 1999: 401–402.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 585896 View Materials , adult male, collected at Point Torment, 178039S, 1238369E (Times Atlas), King Sound , Western Australia, on 11 February 1911, by John P. Rogers (no. 1264). From the Mathews Collection (no. 8414) via the Rothschild Collection.  

COMMENTS: Pomatostomus innominatus   is a name introduced by Mathews (1924b: 223) to be applied to ‘‘the bird figured in my Birds of Australia, Vol. IX, pl. 432 (top figure), and described on p. 255’’ ( Mathews, 1924a: 255). In the text referred to, the illustrated bird was said to be a male from Point Torment, West Kimberley, northwest Australia, and collect­ ed on 11 February 1911 by Rogers. There are in AMNH four specimens collected by Rogers in 1911. Neither female is eligible to be the type. Of the two males, both collected on 11 February 1911, AMNH 585897 bears Rothschild and Rogers (no. 1263) labels, and a pink Mathews label with the Mathews catalog number 8413 (not a type label, as Mathews type labels are green). It does not bear a ‘‘Figured’’ label and thus is not the type. The second male, AMNH 585896, bears Rothschild and Rogers labels and the Mathews yellow ‘‘Figured’’ label and is thus the holotype. Paratypes are: AMNH 585897, detailed above, and the two female specimens, AMNH 585898 (Mathews no. 8412, Rogers no. 1262), collected 11 February 1911, and AMNH 585899 (Mathews no. 8748, Rogers no. 1579), collected 13 April 1911. Mathews (1930: 564) synonymized innominatus   with his Pomatorhinus temporalis nigrescens   .
