Dicruropsis viridinitens Salvadori 

Dicruropsis viridinitens Salvadori, 1894: 593 (Si Oban)  .

Now Dicrurus sumatranus viridinitens ( Salvadori, 1894)  . See Hartert, 1919: 131; Vaurie, 1949b: 304; 1962: 152; van Marle and Voous, 1988: 160; Dickinson, 2003: 292; and Rocamora and Yeatman-Berthelot, 2009: 215.

SYNTYPE: AMNH 672257, adult male, collected at Pisac Sac, Sipura (= Si Oban)

Island, 02.12S, 99.40E ( van Marle and Voous, 1988: 216), Mentawai Islands, Indonesia, on 28 April 1894, by Elio Modigliani (no. 91). From the Rothschild Collection.

COMMENTS: Salvadori had seven specimens from Sipura when he named viridinitens  and considered them all ‘‘tipi della species’’ without designating a type. Modigliani’s label is marked ‘‘Typus’’ by Salvadori, as was his habit for all of his specimens included in a new form. AMNH 672257 is Salvadori’s specimen ‘‘b’’ and is listed as a ‘‘Co-type’’ by Hartert (1919: 131). It is the only Modigliani specimen of this form in AMNH. Four additional syntypes are in MSNG ( Arbocco et al., 1979: 246).

Most authors have treated viridinitens  as a subspecies of D. hottentottus  , but Rocamora and Yeatman-Berthelot (2009: 215) elevated D. sumatranus  to full species status with viridinitens  as a second subspecies.
