Lanius asturinus Lesson 

Lanius asturinus  Lesson, 1830, Traité d’Orn. 5: 351 (terres Australes).

Comments.

Lesson did not mention the number of specimens he examined or the collection. These were the only specimens in the MNHN until another one arrived via Maison Verreaux in 1830 ( MNHN Laboratory, ZMO-GalOis 3). Other specimens which are not regarded as types are: NMW 52.648, which arrived in NMW in or before 1806; one in C. J. Temminck’s private collection, which could presently be in Naturalis ( Temminck 1803-04: 27, Temminck 1807: 50 and 204, no 320) and one specimen which could not be located in NMS (Dufresne Ms 1818: 16). The type locality is erroneous (terres Australes), and therefore corrected and restricted to: West-Timor, near Kupang Bay (article 76a.2.A (ICZN 1999)). Lesson named this species asturinus  or 'goshawk like’ ( Jobling 2017).
