Comments.

Wagler did not mention how many specimens he examined, but clearly those in the MNHN ( Voisin and Voisin 2008: 483-484). There were originally two specimens, followed by a male from Timor, donated by Temminck in 1844 ( MNHN Laboratory, ZMO-GalOis 1). Both syntypes also form part of the type series of Psittacus jonquillaceus  Vieillot 1817. The type locality Timor is restricted to: West-Timor, near Kupang Bay (article 76a.2.A (ICZN 1999)). Wagler named this species vulneratus  or ‘wounded’ ( Jobling 2017).
