Buchanga palawanensis Whitehead 

Dicrurus leucophaeus var. whiteheadi Dubois 

Dicrurus cinerasceus rebaptizatus Hartert 

Buchanga palawanensis Whitehead, 1890: 47 (Taguso)  .

Dicrurus leucophaeus var. whiteheadi Dubois, 1901  .

Dicrurus cinerasceus rebaptizatus Hartert, 1919  .

Now Dicrurus leucophaeus leucophaeus Vieillot, 1817  . See Hartert, 1919: 130–131; Vaurie, 1949b: 260–263; 1962: 145; Dickinson et al., 1991: 290; Dickinson, 2003: 491–492; and Rocamora and Yeatman-Berthelot, 2009: 220– 221.

LECTOTYPE: AMNH 672160View Materials, adult male, collected at Tagusao (= Taguso), 08.49N, 117.53E ( Dickinson et al., 1991: 426), Palawan Island , Philippines, on 3 July 1887, by John Whitehead (no. 1491). From the Rothschild Collection.GoogleMaps 

COMMENTS: In the original description, Whitehead did not enumerate his specimens but described male and female. Sharpe (1888a: 199) had earlier reported on Whitehead’s Palawan collection and listed this species as Buchanga leucophaeus  but also without mentioning the number of specimens. Five specimens collected at Taguso by Whitehead came to AMNH with the Rothschild collection. Hartert (1919: 130), by listing the male collected on 3 July 1887 with Whitehead no. 1491 as the type, designated it the lectotype. The four paralectotypes in AMNH, all collected at Taguso in 1887, are: AMNH 672159 (Whitehead no. 1439), male, 27 June; AMNH 672161 (1560), male, 10 July; AMNH 672162 (–), male, 3 August; AMNH 672163 (1635), female, 3 August.

When Buchanga is included in the genus Dicrurus  , palawanensis  is preoccupied by Dicrurus hottentottus palawanensis Tweeddale, 1878  . Dubois (1901: 530) provided the replacement name Dicrurus leucophaeus var. whiteheadi  and Hartert (1919: 130) provided the replacement name Dicrurus cineraceus rebaptizatus  . Both names share the same type as B. palawanensis  , and both are considered synonyms of nominate leucophaeus  ( Vaurie, 1962: 145; Dickinson, 2003: 492).
