Oriolus vulneratus Sharpe 

Oriolus vulneratus Sharpe, 1887: 437  (Kina Balu). Now Oriolus cruentus vulneratus Sharpe, 1887  .

See Sharpe, 1889: 186; Greenway, 1962: 135;

Smythies, 2000: 625–626; Dickinson et al., 2004a: 71; and Walther and Jones, 2008: 730.

SYNTYPES: AMNH 671276, AMNH 671277, adult males, collected on Kina Balu, 3000 ft, 06.03N, 116.32E (Times Atlas  ), Sabah, Borneo Island, Malaysia, on 5 March 1887 and 25 February 1887, respectively, by John Whitehead (no. 1064 and no. 1021). From the Rothschild Collection.

COMMENTS: Only Whitehead’s specimens collected on his first expedition to Kinabalu in 1887 were included by Sharpe (1887) in the original description; he based vulneratus  on adult males, without stating how many specimens he had. Later, he ( Sharpe, 1889: 186) listed his specimens from Whitehead’s 1887 expedition; the two syntypes listed above are specimens ‘‘b’’ and ‘‘d’’ in his list. In addition, he had an immature male and a female. Those specimens are also in AMNH but were not part of Sharpe’s type series. Hartert did not mention these syntypes in any of his lists of types in the Rothschild Collection  ; AMNH type labels have been added.
