Dicrurus hottentottus samarensis Vaurie 

Dicrurus hottentottus samarensis Vaurie, 1947: 1  (Bonga, Samar).

Now Dicrurus hottentottus samarensis Vaurie, 1947  . See Vaurie, 1949b: 282; 1962: 148; Dickinson et al., 1991: 291–292; Dickinson, 2003: 492–493; and Rocamora and Yeatman- Berthelot, 2009: 213–214.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 672295View Materials, adult male, collected at Bonga , Samar Island , Philippines, on 7 June 1896, by John Whitehead (no. B.527). From the Rothschild Collection. 

COMMENTS: Vaurie gave the AMNH number of the holotype in the original description and central tail feather measurements for four males and six females from Samar and Leyte. Later, he ( Vaurie, 1949b: 282) listed his specimens in more detail: Bonga, Samar, one male (type)  ; Catbalogan , Samar, two adult males, five adult females, one subadult female  ; no locality, Samar, one adult male [?]; northern mountains, Leyte, one immature male, one adult female. I have considered the following five specimens in AMNH to be paratypes of samarensis: AMNH 69043View Materials, [s] initialed CV[aurie], Samar, April 1888, Bourns and Worcester collectors, exchanged to AMNH by USNM (no. 161327)  ; AMNH 272293View Materials, immature male, AMNH 272294View Materials, female, mountains of northern Leyte, 10 and 4 August 1896, collected by Whitehead (nos. B.833 and B.840)  ; AMNH 272296View Materials, female, Samar, 6 June 1896, collected by Whitehead (B.515)  ; AMNH 292297View Materials, sex?, Catbalogon , Samar, 20 April 1888, from the Steere Collection via the Rothschild Collection. This last specimen would have been available to Vaurie, but there is no indication as to whether he considered it male or female. Vaurie borrowed specimens from several museums, undoubtedly including other paratypes of samarensis. Although Vaurie (1947: 2) included Panaon and possibly Bohol islands in the range of samarensis he did not have specimens from those islands  .

Dickinson et al. (1991: 416) placed Bonga as ‘‘probably at or near Bagacay 12.50N 125.13E.’’
