Comments.

Lesson did not specify how many birds were examined, only that they originated from Timor and were brought back by Maugé. These were the only specimens in the collection until a specimen arrived from the Philippines via Maison Verreaux in 1837 ( MNHN Laboratory, ZMO-GalOis 3). Mees (1982) drew attention to an issue regarding Lesson’s name, which included reference to the specimens collected by Maugé listed above, but could be interpreted as a replacement name for Ocypterus leucogaster  Valenciennes 1820. The issue is not yet solved, and more research is needed. The type locality is restricted to: Timor, near Kupang Bay (article 76a.2.A (ICZN 1999)). Lesson named this species albiventer  or ‘white-bellied’ ( Jobling 2017).
