Procnias cyanotropus Wied  

Procnias cyanotropus Wied, 1820: 187 (Bara de Jucú)   .

Now Tersina viridis viridis (Illiger, 1811)   . See Allen, 1889b: 218, Hellmayr, 1936: 1, and Dickinson, 2003: 813.

SYNTYPES: AMNH 4368, juvenile male, AMNH 4369, adult male, Rio Jucú (5 Bara de Jucú), 20.24S, 40.19W ( Paynter and Traylor, 1991), Espiritu Santo, Brazil, from the Maximilian Collection.

COMMENTS: In the original description, only the adult male is described, but both Wied specimens would have been in his possession when cyanotropus   was described as they shared a Wied label, one side of which was marked ‘‘mas iuv’’ and the other ‘‘Mas.’’ Allen considered these two formerly mounted male specimens to be syntypes, with both bearing AMNH type labels. The Wied label is glued to the back of the label on AMNH 4369.

Wied’s (1820: 187) original description reads: ‘‘betrachtet man ihn gegen des Licht, so ist der ganze Vogel prachtvoll himmelblau, and vom Lichte abgewant erscheint er glänzend hellgrün; Zügel, Kehle und Kinn sind schwarz; der Unterlieb weiss; in Berliner Museum hat man ihn Procnias ventralis   gennant.’’
