Oriolus finschi Hartert  

Oriolus finschi Hartert, 1904b: 219 (Wetter)   .

Now Oriolus melanotis finschi Hartert, 1904   . See Hartert, 1919: 133; Greenway, 1962: 123; Mees, 1965: 194; White and Bruce, 1986: 318; Dickinson et al., 2004a: 67; and Walther and Jones, 2008: 717.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 671111 View Materials , adult male, collected on Wetar (= Wetter) Island, 07.48S, 126.18E ( White and Bruce, 1986: 491), Lesser Sunda Islands, Indonesia, on 16 April 1901, by Heinrich Kühn (no. 5604A). From the Rothschild Collection. GoogleMaps  

COMMENTS: Hartert gave Kühn’s number of the holotype in the original description and listed five males and five females that he had collected. The following seven paratypes came to AMNH with the Rothschild Collection, all collected by Kühn on Wetar in 1902: AMNH 671112 View Materials (Kühn no. 5601), AMNH 671113 View Materials (5600), males, 29 September   ; AMNH 671114 View Materials (5599), male, 4 October, AMNH 671115 View Materials (5603), female, 5 October   ; AMNH 671116 View Materials (–), AMNH 671117 View Materials (5754), females, 22 October   ; AMNH 671118 View Materials (–), [male], 20 October. The two paratypes that did not come to AMNH were females without Kühn numbers   .

Hartert (1919: 133) included finschi   as a subspecies of O. striatus   ; Greenway (1962: 123) and many other authors included it in viridifuscus   . However, Mees (1965: 194) pointed out that O. melanotis Bonaparte, 1850   , predated Heine’s name and is the valid name for what had been called O. viridifuscus (Heine, 1859)   . Authors since then have used O. melanotis   for the species.
