Comments.

Lesson did not mention the number of specimens examined from the Baudin expedition. The MNHN specimen was catalogued around 1854 ( MNHN Laboratory, ZMO-GalOis 5) and represented the sole specimen in the MNHN for a long time. It was followed by two birds collected on Java by Labillardière between 1794-1796 and donated to the museum in 1817. The latter two birds are the syntypes of Ardea bilineata  Cuvier in Lesson, 1831 ( Voisin and Voisin 1996: 604, who designated MNHN-ZO-MO1992-242 as the lectotype). The type locality is lacking and added as: West-Timor, near Kupang Bay (article 76a.2.A (ICZN 1999)). Cuvier named this species australis  or ‘southern’ ( Jobling 2017).
