Comments.

Lesson did not say how many specimens he examined, only refering to a female collected by Maugé. This female was the sole specimen from the Baudin expedition that entered the registration book around 1854 ( MNHN Laboratory, ZMO-GalOis 4) as can be seen from the original description. There was also one other bird, collected by Labillardière in Tasmania which arrived between 1816-1818. The type locality is restricted to: West-Timor, near Kupang Bay (article 76a.2.A (ICZN 1999)). Lesson commemorated Maugé in the species’ name.
