Cacicus uropygialis pacificus Chapman  

Cacicus uropygialis pacificus Chapman, 1915: 657   (Alto Bonito, R. Sucio, Chocó, Colombia).

Now Cacicus uropygialis pacificus Chapman, 1915   . See Hellmayr, 1937: 33–34; Blake, 1968: 145– 146; Dickinson, 2003: 769; and Fraga, 2011: 748–749.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 134533 View Materials , adult male, collected at Alto Bonito , 1500 ft, ca. 07.05N, 76.30W ( Paynter, 1997), Antioquia, Colombia, on 17 February 1915, by Leo Miller (no. 11227) and Howarth Boyle. GoogleMaps  

COMMENTS: Chapman gave the AMNH number of the holotype in the original description and gave measurements for 13 males (including the type) and seven females from Colombia and Ecuador. The following specimens are considered paratypes of pacificus: Colombia, Rio Salaqui, AMNH 113363 View Materials , male, 23 February 1912, by Kerr   ; Alto Bonito , AMNH 134534 View Materials , male [female], 18 February, AMNH 134535 View Materials , 134537 View Materials , males, 23 February, AMNH 134538 View Materials , sex?, 17 February, AMNH 134539 View Materials , female, 23 February, all collected in 1915 by Miller and Boyle   ; Baudo, AMNH 123504 View Materials , male, 29 June, AMNH 123505 View Materials , male, 17 June, both collected in 1912 by Kerr, the latter specimen exchanged to O. Bangs in 1918, now in MCZ   ; Barbacoas , AMNH 118349 View Materials , male, 3 September, AMNH 118350 View Materials , female?, 1 September (measurments on label), AMNH 118353 View Materials , female, 5 August (no measurementson label), all collected in 1912 by W.B. Richardson   ; Puerto Valdivia, AMNH 134531 View Materials , 134532 View Materials , males, 14 December 1914, by Miller and Boyle, the latter specimen exchanged with Bangs in September 1918 and now in MCZ   ; La Vieja, AMNH 123506 View Materials , female, 2 October 1912, by Kerr. Ecuador, Esmeraldas, AMNH 119038 View Materials , male, 27 October, AMNH 119039 View Materials , female, 24 October (exchanged to ANSP in 1928), AMNH 119040 View Materials , female, 25 October (exchanged to MCZ in 1928), AMNH 119041 View Materials , male, 24 October, AMNH 119042 View Materials , male, 20 November , AMNH 119043 View Materials , male, 27 November, all collected by Richardson in 1912   .

I was not able to verify that the following specimens should be considered paratypes: AMNH 134536, male, Alto Bonito, 19 February 1915 was exchanged with USNM, no date, and was perhaps not available to Chapman. AMNH 118351, female, Barbacoas, 22 August 1912, was exchanged to USNM, no date, and I did not find AMNH 118352, male, Barbacoas, 18 August 1912 in the collection. AMNH 155193, although collected by Richardson on 24 August 1912 at Barbacoas, was not cataloged until 1920, and then only to genus. It is not a paratype.

Chapman (1917: 58–68, 640) gave more information on the Miller and Boyle expedition and the locality Alto Bonito.

The subspecies pacificus is usually considered a subspecies of C. uropygialis   , but Fraga (2011: 749) has separated the subspecies pacificus and microrhynchus   as the separate species C. microrhynchus   based on vocal differences. He also suggested that pacificus may merit treatment as a full species based on vocal differences, but that more research is required.
