Oriolus sagittatus subaffinis Mathews 

Oriolus sagittatus subaffinis Mathews, 1912a: 435  (Cooktown, Queensland).

Now Oriolus sagittatus sagittatus (Latham, 1801)  . See Mathews, 1926: 266–274; 1930: 860; Greenway, 1962: 124; Schodde and Mason, 1999: 601– 603; Dickinson et al., 2004a: 67; and Walther and Jones, 2008: 717–718.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 670962View Materials, adult male, collected at Cooktown , 15.28S, 145.15E ( USBGN, 1957), Queensland, Australia, on 20 June 1900, by E. Olive for H.C. Robinson. From the Mathews Collection (no. 3574) via the Rothschild Collection.GoogleMaps 

COMMENTS: Mathews gave his catalog number of the holotype in the original description and the range as ‘‘ North Queensland’   ’; he apparently had the single specimen. Robinson and Laverock (1900: 625) reported on E. Olive’s collection and noted, under Mimeta sagittata, that he had collected six specimens at Cooktown in June and September. Both Rothschild and Mathews later purchased some of this collection from Robinson, but the other two Cooktown specimens in AMNH were never in the Mathews Collection. Other Mathews specimens from north Queensland were collected after subaffinis was published on 31 January 1912  .

Schodde and Mason (1999: 603), who examined this holotype, noted that it was based ‘‘either on a migrant nominotypical sagittatus  or an intergrade with prevailingly sagittatus  traits.’’ Most authors have synonymized it with O. s. sagittatus  .

The International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature (2009: 375–378) has conserved sagittatus  and rejected viridis  as the name of this species.
