Comments.

Temminck did not mention the number of specimens or in which collection he examined them. The MNHN specimens were catalogued around 1854 ( MNHN Laboratory, ZMO-GalOis 4) and represent the only specimens of this species. The MNHN syntypes are also the type material of Glareola isabella  Vieillot 1816. The type locality is erroneous ( l’Austral-Asie), and therefore corrected and restricted to: West-Timor, near Kupang Bay (article 76a.2.A (ICZN 1999)). Temminck named this species grallaria  or ‘stilt-walker’ ( Jobling 2017).
