Turdus poliocephalus tolokiwae Diamond  

Turdus poliocephalus tolokiwae Diamond, 1989: 59 (Tolokiwa)   .

Now Turdus poliocephalus tolokiwae Diamond, 1989   . See Clement, 2000: 360, 364.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 818431 View Materials , adult male, collected on Tolokiwa Island , 1300 m, 058239S, 1478379E (Times Atlas), Siassi Archipelago, Morobe Prov., Papua New Guinea, on 16 August 1972, by Jared M. Diamond (no. 2810).  

COMMENTS: The AMNH number of the holotype was cited in the original description, and measurements were given for six males (including the holotype) and 13 females. Paratypes are AMNH 836154 –836158, males, AMNH 836159 –836171, females, and AMNH 836172–836178, immature male and unsexed specimens that were part of the same collection but not listed in the description.

Turdus melanarius heinrothi Rothschild and Hartert  

Turdus melanarius heinrothi Rothschild and Hartert, 1924: 53   (St. Matthias Island).

Now Turdus poliocephalus heinrothi Rothschild and Hartert, 1924   . See Coates, 1990: 56, Clement, 2000: 360, 364, and Mayr and Diamond, 2001: 390.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 575398 View Materials , adult male, collected on Mussau (5 St. Matthias) Island, 018259S, 1498409E ( USBGN, 1943), St. Matthias Islands, New Ireland Prov., Papua New Guinea, on 9 July 1923, by Albert F. Eichhorn (no. 8647). From the Rothschild Collection.  

COMMENTS: Eichhorn collected a single specimen ( Hartert, 1928: 217), still the only one known. Hartert (1924a: 261–278) reported in full on Eichhorn’s collection and inexplicably noted ‘‘Wings 111 to 112’’ for heinrothi.

Turdus poliocephalus bougainvillei Mayr  

Turdus poliocephalus bougainvillei Mayr, 1941b: 6   (Bougainville Island).

Now Turdus poliocephalus bougainvillei Mayr, 1941   . See Coates, 1990: 56, Clement, 2000: 360, 364, and Mayr and Diamond, 2001: 390.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 226229 View Materials , adult male, collected near the village of Kupei (ca. 068109S, 1558309E), Bougainville Island , Solomon Islands, on 20 January 1928, by Guy Richards (no. 379) on the Whitney South Sea Expedition.  

COMMENTS: The AMNH number of the ho­

lotype was cited in the original description. Mayr (1941b: 6) noted that the ‘‘typical series of this form’’ was collected near Kupei , five hours walk from Kieta , and that ‘‘ Later on Hamlin collected two additional specimens ... on the slope of Mt. Balbi’ ’. Their measurements were given separately, and Mayr noted differences, but considered them too slight to justify naming. I interpret this to mean that only the Kupei specimens are part of the type series. The expedition was at Kupei from 31 December 1927 through 1 February 1928   ; the altitude at which the thrush was obtained was 4000–5000 ft (unpubl. journal of Hannibal Hamlin , vol. S, Whitney South Sea Expedition , Archives , Dept. of Ornithology, AMNH). Paratypes are AMNH 226224–226232 View Materials and 226234– 226239. AMNH 226233 View Materials and 226240, the Mt. Balbi specimens, were collected 22 and 24 April 1928 and are not considered paratypes   .
