Comments.

Temminck only mentioned that the species could be found in the MNHN. The only two specimens at the MNHN at the time of writing are birds from the Baudin expedition ( MNHN Laboratory, ZMO-GalOis 4). The specimen now in NMW ( NMW 35.339) left the MNHN by 1815, was not examined by Temminck, and has no type status. The type locality is restricted to: West-Timor, near Kupang Bay (article 76a.2.A (ICZN 1999)). Temminck named this species reticulata  or 'reticulated/with net-like markings’ ( Jobling 2017).
