Comments.

Vieillot did not mention the number of specimens he examined. The MNHN specimens were catalogued around 1854 ( MNHN Laboratory, ZMO-GalOis 4) and represent the only specimens of this species. The syntypes of Glareola isabella  also form part of the type series of G. grallaria  Temminck 1820. The type locality is erroneous ( l’Australasie), and therefore corrected and restricted to: West-Timor, near Kupang Bay (article 76a.2.A (ICZN 1999)). Vieillot named this species isabella  or ‘isabelline-coloured’ ( Jobling 2017).
