Comments.

These two syntypes were the only two specimens in the MNHN until a specimen arrived with La Zélée from Dumont d’Urville’s Astrolabe expedition (1837-1840), donated by Hombron and Jacquinot ( MNHN Laboratory, ZMO-GalOis 1). Wagler did not mention the number of specimens examined, only that they were present in MNHN. Other Baudin expedition specimens (not examined by Wagler) is one bird in C.J. Temminck’s private collection ( Temminck 1807: 33, no 1060) and two birds that arrived in 1815 in NMW ( NMW 50.150 and NMW 50.149). The type localities are erroneous (Java and Nova Hollandia australi), and therefore corrected and restricted to: West-Timor, near Kupang Bay (article 76a.2.A (ICZN 1999)). Wagler named this species batavensis  or 'from Batavia’ ( Jobling 2017).
