Sylvia leucophoea Vieillot 

Sylvia leucophoea  Vieillot, 1817, Nouv. Dict. Nat. éd. 11: 189 (Nouvelle-Hollande).

Lalage sueurii  (Vieillot, 1818). - Now.

Type materials.

The two SYNTYPES are the same as Turdus Suerii  Vieillot.

Comments.

An unknown number of specimens was described by Vieillot. These specimens represent the only two in the registration book ( MNHN Laboratory, ZMO-GalOis 3). Another specimen collected in the Philippines by Dussumier entered the collection in 1820. The name suerii supersedes the chronologically senior name leucophaea, this needs to be subject to additional research. The syntypes are the same as that of Turdus Suerii  Vieillot 1818. 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 named this species leucophaea or 'shining white’ ( Jobling 2017).
