Comments.

Many individuals were examined by Temminck, including birds from Batavia (Java), Moluccas, Timor, Manilla, Luçon and from China. The Timorese specimens were catalogued around 1854 ( MNHN Laboratory, ZMO-GalOis 4), and for a long time represented the sole specimens in MNHN, to be followed by a bird from Batavia by Pierre-Médard Diard which arrived in 1821. One of the type localities (Timor), is restricted to: West-Timor, near Kupang Bay (article 76a.2.A (ICZN 1999)). Temminck named this species excalfactoria  or 'warming, heating’ ( Jobling 2017).
