Grallina cyanoleuca neglecta Mathews 

Grallina cyanoleuca neglecta Mathews, 1912a: 372  (North-West Australia (Parry’s Creek)).

Now Grallina cyanoleuca neglecta Mathews, 1912  . See Mathews, 1923b: 323–333; Mayr, 1962a: 159; Schodde and Mason, 1999: 507–508; Dickinson, 2003: 503; Johnstone and Storr, 2004: 236–238; and Tingay and Tingay, 2009: 270–271.

COMMENTS: Mathews cited his catalog number of the holotype in the original description and gave the range as ‘‘North- West Australia.’’ The following specimens are considered paratypes: Parry Creek, AMNH 665454View Materials, 655455View Materials, 655461–655464View Materials, two males, three females, one sex?, collected October 1908 – February 1909, by Rogers  ; Derby , AMNH 655456View Materials, 655457View Materials, male, female, collected November, December 1910, by Rogers  ; Point Torment , King Sound, AMNH 655459View Materials, 655460View Materials, male, female, collected February 1911, by Rogers  ; Broome Hill , AMNH 655465–655468View Materials, three males, one juvenile, collected February and October 1906, December 1907, by T. Carter  ; Strelley River , AMNH 655471View Materials, male, September 1907, collector?. These specimens, including the holotype, were found in Mathews’ catalog under the following numbers: 2530– 2541, 6289–6290, and 8410–8411. Other specimens were either cataloged after the publication of the description or were never in the Mathews Collection  .

The ICZN (2009: 375–378) has voted to conserve the specific name cyanoleucus  and reject the specific name picata in reference to this species.


Schodde et al. (2013: 238–244) have submitted to the ICZN an application to conserve Corcoracidae  as the valid name of this family based on its prevailing usage in relevant literature. Until a decision is reached by the Commission, the name Corcoracidae  is to be used (ICZN, 1999: 96, Art. 82.1).
