Muscicapa cyanea Vieillot 

Muscicapa cyanea  Vieillot, 1818, Nouv. Dict. Nat. éd. 21: 447 (no locality).

Cyornis hyacinthinus  (Temminck, 1820). See Vaurie 1952: 104-105 and Anon. 1956: 257-264. - Now.

Type materials.

The two SYNTYPES are the same as Muscicapa hyacinthina  Temminck.

Comments.

Vieillot did not record how many specimens were available to him when examening the species. The two syntypes are the only specimens of this taxon that where registered ( MNHN Laboratory, ZMO-GalOis 3). The name has been suppressed (Anon. 1956) at request of Vaurie (1952). Both syntypes double as those of Muscicapa hyacinthina  Temminck 1820, which name now takes precedence. The type locality is lacking, and therefore clarified as: West-Timor, near Kupang Bay (article 76a.2.A (ICZN 1999)). Vieillot named this species cyanea  (= dark-blue) ( Jobling 2017).
