Comments.

Swainson studied one bird in the MNHN. The Baudin expedition bird represents the only specimen in the MNHN ( MNHN Laboratory, ZMO-GalOis 4). The bird which was once in NMS (Dufresne Ms 1818: 87) was not a type and is no longer present (Bob McGowan in litt.). The type locality is erroneous (New Holland), and therefore corrected and restricted to: West-Timor, near Kupang Bay (article 76a.2.A (ICZN 1999)). Swainson named this species buceroides  or 'resembling a hornbill’ ( Jobling 2017).
