Comments.

Lesson did not mention the number of specimens examined. The two MNHN specimens are the only specimens that had entered the registration book around 1854 ( MNHN Laboratory, ZMO-GalOis 3). Both syntypes listed above are also part of the type material of Turdus peronii  Vieillot 1817. The type locality is erroneous (Nouvelle-Hollande), and therefore corrected and restricted to: West-Timor, near Kupang Bay (article 76a.2.A (ICZN 1999)). Lesson named this species novaehollandiae or 'from New Holland’ ( Jobling 2017).
