scientific name

Meliphaga maculata Temminck
status

 

Meliphaga maculata Temminck 

Meliphaga maculata  Temminck, 1820, Man. d’Orn. Liv. 5: plate 29, fig. 1 ( l’Océanie).

Lichmera flavicans  (Vieillot, 1817). See Hellmayr 1916: 102. - Now.

Type materials.

The two SYNTYPES are the same as Melithreptus flavicans  Vieillot.

Comments.

Temminck did not mention the number of specimens he examined in the MNHN. The only two specimens in the MNHN were the birds collected at the Baudin expedition ( MNHN Laboratory, ZMO-GalOis 4). These syntypes also are those of Melithreptus flavicans  Vieillot 1817, making it an objective junior synonym. The type locality is erroneous ( l’Océanie), and therefore corrected and restricted to: West-Timor, near Kupang Bay (article 76a.2.A (ICZN 1999)). Temminck, named this species maculata  or ‘spotted’ ( Jobling 2017).
