status

 

Turnix maculatus Vieillot 

Turnix maculatus  Vieillot, 1819, Nouv. Dict. Nat. éd. 35: 47 (Assam).

Turnix maculosus  Temminck, 1815. See Hellmayr 1914: 94-96, van den Hoek Ostende et al. 1997: 53 and Voisin and Voisin 2015: 54 and 57 - Now.

Type materials.

The three SYNTYPES are the same as Hemipodius maculosus  Temminck.

Comments.

Vieillot refers to the Baudin expedition and an Australian orgin, but not to the number of specimens examined. Vieillot referred to Temminck (1815) for the birds he examined. The three syntypes form part of the type series of Hemipodius maculosus  Temminck 1815, as well. The type locality is erroneous (Assam), and therefore corrected and restricted to: West-Timor near Kupang Bay (article 76a.2.A (ICZN 1999)). Vieillot, described this species and named it maculatus  or ‘spotted’ ( Jobling 2017).
