Comments.

Vieillot referred to a mounted bird. The MNHN specimen was catalogued around 1854 ( MNHN Laboratory, ZMO-GalOis 4) and represented the sole specimen of this species until 1856 when a specimen collected by Constantin de Sabir in the Amur region was added to the collection. The holotype also represents the only surviving / located syntype of Totanus pedestris  Lesson 1831 (see below). The type locality is lacking and clarified as: West-Timor, near Kupang Bay (article 76a.2.A (ICZN 1999)). Vieillot named this species brevipes  or 'short foot’ ( Jobling 2017).
