Comments.

In the original description Temminck mentioned that it was described from a single specimen. This specimen was catalogued around 1854 ( MNHN Laboratory, ZMO-GalOis 4) and represented the sole specimen in the MNHN for a long time. It was followed by a bird from Sumatra collected by Pierre-Médard Diard and subsequently donated to the MNHN in 1821. This Baudin expedition bird arrived with Le Naturaliste in Le Havre, France on 7 June 1803 and subsequently entered the MNHN in the week of 13-20 July 1803 ( Jansen 2016). The type locality is erroneous ( l’Inde), and therefore corrected and restricted to: West-Timor, near Kupang Bay (article 76a.2.A (ICZN 1999)). Temminck named this species bitorquata  or ‘double-banded’ ( Jobling 2017).
