Artamus leucorhynchus melvillensis Mathews 

Artamus leucorhynchus melvillensis Mathews, 1912b: 45  (Melville Island).

Now Artamus leucorynchus leucopygialis Gould, 1842  . See Stresemann, 1913a: 293; Hartert, 1920: 455; Mathews, 1923b: 217–224; 1930: 635; Mayr, 1962b: 162; Schodde and Mason, 1999: 561–562; Dickinson, 2003: 464; and Rowley and Russell, 2009b: 305.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 664698View Materials, adult male, collected at Coopers Camp , Apsley Strait, Melville Island, Northern Territory, Australia, on 1 October 1911, by J.P. Rogers (no. 2082). From the Mathews Collection (no. 10780) via the Rothschild Collection. 

COMMENTS: Mathews cited his catalog number of the holotype in the original description and gave the range of melvillensis as Melville Island . The holotype, in addition to Rogers’ label and Mathews and Rothschild type labels, also bears a ‘‘ Figured’ ’ label, indicating that it was the model for Mathews (1923b: pl. 475, opp. p. 217; text p. 218), where the figured bird is confirmed as the type of melvillensis. Paratypes are: Coopers Camp, Melville Island, AMNH 664699–664706View Materials (Mathews nos. 10779, 11487– 11490, 11492–11494), five males, three females, 25 October–14 December 1911, collected by Rogers. A male cataloged as no. 11491 by Mathews, collected on 12 December 1911, did not come to AMNH with the Rothschild Collection  .

Coopers Camp was said to be directly across Apsley Strait from the Bathurst Island mission station ( Hart and Pilling, 1964: 101) at 11.45S, 130.41E (Times Atlas  ).
