Comments.

Temminck stated that the Baudin expedition brought back three specimens which entered the MNHN ( Voisin and Voisin 2015: 54). One specimen is therefore missing. The MNHN specimen was catalogued around 1854 ( MNHN Laboratory, ZMO-GalOis 4) and represents the sole specimen of this species. The RMNH specimen was exchanged with Temminck in 1812. At that time, Temminck had one of the largest private collections in Europe ( Jansen 2017a). The two surviving syntypes, and likely the missing third syntype as well, are also the type series of Turnix maculatus  Vieillot 1819. The type locality is erroneous (le continent de la Nouvelle-Hollande), and therefore corrected and restricted to: West-Timor, near Kupang Bay (article 76a.2.A (ICZN 1999)). Temminck himself described this species and named it maculosus  or ‘spotted’ ( Jobling 2017).
