Comments.

Vieillot did not describe how many specimens were available to him when preparing the species description. The two MNHN specimens are the only specimens that had entered the registration book around 1854 ( MNHN Laboratory, ZMO-GalOis 3). The bird now in NMW was also available to Vieillot as it was sent to Vienna in 1815 (see explantation in chapter: Timorese bird-specimens collected by Maugé and his colleagues). A specimen sent to Rouen on 23 April 1806 ( Muséum d’histoire Naturelle, Le Havre no 21111, 21114) and burned in the night of 30-31 December 1926 ( Bénédicte Percheron and Thierry Kermanach in litt.) was not part of the type-series. The first two syntypes listed above are also the syntypes of Turdus  Novæ Hollandiæ Lesson 1831. The type locality is erroneous (Nouvelle-Hollande), and therefore corrected and restricted to: West-Timor, near Kupang Bay (article 76a.2.A (ICZN 1999)). Vieillot paid tribute to François Péron when naming this species.
