Saxicola caprata wahgiensis Mayr and Gilliard  

Saxicola caprata wahgiensis Mayr and Gilliard, 1951: 8   (Mafulu, Central Division, Papua, New Guinea).

Now Saxicola caprata wahgiensis Mayr and Gilliard, 1951   . See Coates, 1990: 54, and Urquhart, 2002: 232.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 419990 View Materials , adult female, collected at Mafula (5 Mafulu), 1250 m, Central Prov., Papua New Guinea, on 29 September 1933, by Richard Archbold and Austin L. Rand. From the 1933–1934 (First) Archbold Expedition (no. 1468).  

COMMENTS: The AMNH number of the holotype was given in the original description   ; this specimen is also a paratype of S. c. belensis, see above. Paratypes of S. c. wahgiensis from the Wahgi region , collected in 1950, are AMNH 705048–705054 View Materials , three males, one female, and two juveniles. Of these, AMNH 705048 View Materials was sent to the Australian Museum in 1953, AMNH 705049 View Materials was not found, and AMNH 705050 View Materials was ex­ changed to the FMNH in the early 1960s. The mountains of southeastern New Guinea were also included in the range although no measurements were given, and the eight males and eight females listed above as paratypes of belensis would be the holotype and paratypes of wahgiensis   .

See Wink et al. (2002a, 2002b) for molecular studies of Saxicola caprata   . Mafulu is shown on the map in Archbold and Rand (1935: opposite p. 527) and on modern maps as Mafula at ca. 088319S, 1478019E.
