Dicrurus leucophaeus stevensi Stuart Baker 

Dicrurus leucophaeus stevensi Stuart Baker, 1918: 295 (Darjeeling)  .

Now Dicrurus leucophaeus hopwoodi Stuart Baker, 1918  . See Hartert, 1928: 191; Vaurie, 1949b: 249; 1962: 143; Dickinson, 2003: 491–492; and Rocamora and Yeatman-Berthelot, 2009: 220– 221.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 672024View Materials, adult female, collected at Rungarum (as on label), 5700 ft, Darjeeling, India, on 25 April 1900, by C.T. Bingham. From the Rothschild Collection. 

COMMENTS: In the original description, Stuart Baker designated as type of stevensi a female specimen in the Rothschild Collection collected on 25 April 1900 in Darjeeling by Bingham. He did not enumerate his paratypes. Vaurie (1949b: 249) discussed this form at length and concluded that the type was intermediate between his beavani and Stuart Baker’s hopwoodi and arbitrarily decided to synonymize it with hopwoodi. Vaurie’s beavani is now considered a synonym of longicaudatus (see Dicrurus leucophaeus beavani  above).

This name is sometimes spelled steveni, but it was spelled stevensi in the original description and was named for Herbert Stevens.
