Ptilotis chrysops beaconsfieldi Mathews  

Ptilotis chrysops beaconsfieldi Mathews, 1912a: 407   (Victoria).

Now Lichenostomus chrysops chrysops (Latham, 1801)   . See Salomonsen, 1967: 379, Schodde and Mason, 1999: 232–233, Christidis and Boles, 2008: 185–191, and Higgins et al., 2008: 597– 598.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 694642 View Materials , male, collected at Beaconsfield (as on label), 38.03S, 145.22E ( USBGN, 1957), Victoria, Australia, undated, by F.E. Wilson and L.G. Chandler. From the Mathews Collection (no. 3213) via the Rothschild Collection. GoogleMaps  

COMMENTS: Mathews cited his catalog number of the holotype in the original description and gave the range as ‘‘ Victoria.’’ The number ‘‘775’’ that appears on the original label refers to the number of this species in Mathews (1908). The following six specimens are paratypes: Frankston , AMNH 694638 View Materials (catalog no. not found), male, 20 March 1908   ; AMNH 694640 View Materials (Mathews no. 384), female, 20 March 1908   ; AMNH 694641 View Materials (3214), female, 14 March 1908   ; Olinda, AMNH 694643 View Materials (5120), male, 1 February 1909   ; AMNH 694646 View Materials (9059), female, 17 April 1911   ; AMNH 694647 View Materials (8567), female, 11 February 1911. AMNH 694640 View Materials was received from T. Tregallas and cataloged 6 October 1910 in a space in the catalog that had been used previously to register a specimen of a different species, but the earlier specimen had apparently been exchanged by Mathews ! Two Victorian specimens were cataloged by Mathews after the publication of beaconsfieldi on 31 January 1912: AMNH 694649 View Materials (10096), female, Olinda, 11 February 1911   ; AMNH 694654 View Materials (10350), male, Melton, 6 June 1910   ; they are not considered paratypes. Three other Victorian specimens in the Mathews Collection were collected early enough but I do not know when they were acquired by Mathews : AMNH 694639 View Materials , male, Frankston , 1891   ; AMNH 694650 View Materials , female, Bayswater, 6 April 1901   ; AMNH 649666 View Materials , juv., Box Hill, 1 December 1895. They too are not considered paratypes. For the use of the date 1801 for Latham (1801), see Schodde et al. (2010)   .
