Comments.

Vieillot did not specify how many specimens were present in the MNHN. The current MNHN specimen was the sole specimen in the MNHN until another arrived in 1844 with La Zélée from Dumont d’Urville’s Astrolabe expedition (1837-1840), donated by Hombron and Jacquinot. The type locality is erroneous (Nouvelle-Hollande), and therefore corrected and restricted to: West-Timor, near Kupang Bay (article 76a.2.A (ICZN 1999)). Vieillot named this species ruficollis  or ‘red-necked’ ( Jobling 2017).
