Drymodes brunneopygia victoriae Mathews  

Drymodes brunneopygia victoriae Mathews, 1912a: 332   (Victoria).

Now Drymodes brunneopygia Gould, 1841   . See Mathews, 1921: 214, and Schodde and Mason, 1999: 392.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 585433 View Materials , adult male, collected on Kow Plains , Victoria, Australia, on 6 October 1909. From the Mathews Collection (no. 4534) via the Rothschild Collection.  

COMMENTS: In the original description, Mathews gave his catalog number of the holotype, which bears both a Mathews and a Rothschild type label. Mathews did not say how many specimens he had, but two female specimens from Kow Plains, registered at the same time, are paratypes: AMNH 585434 (no. 4533) and AMNH 585435 (no. 4532). Mathews obtained these specimens from Frank E. Howe and cataloged them on 12 April 1910. The range of victoriae   was given as New South Wales and Victoria, but there is no way of knowing which additional specimens Mathews had in hand when the taxon was described.

Kow Plains is in western Victoria, some 35 miles east of Pinnaroo (358189S, 1408549E, Times Atlas), South Australia ( Howe, 1909: 132–133).

Schodde and Mason (1999: 348–350) have summarized the convoluted taxonomic history of the Australasian robins, placing them in the family Petroicidae   , as did Christidis and Boles (1994: 23) and Dickinson (2003: 522). Earlier authors ( Sibley and Monroe,1990: 448 and Coates,1990: 186) have used Eopsaltriidae Mathews, 1946   , as the family name; however, Bock (1994: 153, 210) showed that Petroicidae Mathews, 1920   , has priority. Other authors have placed the genus Drymodes   in the Turdidae ( Ripley, 1964: 29)   and in the Timaliidae ( Rand and Gilliard, 1967: 338)   . See also Sibley and Ahlquist (1982).

As noted by Schodde and Mason (1999: 392), the date of publication of Drymodes brunneopygia Gould   is 1841, not 1840 as usually cited ( Duncan, 1937: 79).
