COMMENTS: In the original description, Rothschild and Hartert designated the male bearing Meek’s number 3188 as the holotype and listed two specimens in their type series. The paratype is AMNH 672565, adult male, Guadalcanal, 8 May 1901, collected by Meek (no. 3110). The female specimen mentioned by Vaurie (1949b: 291) as a paratype of meeki  is a specimen collected by the Whitney South Sea Expedition in 1927, long after the publication of meeki  .
