Sturnus Hollandiae C.L. Brehm 

Sturnus Hollandiae C.L. Brehm 1831: 1016  ( Holland).

Now Sturnus vulgaris vulgaris Linnaeus, 1758  . See Hartert, 1903d: 49; 1918a: 10; Amadon, 1962a: 107; Dickinson, 2003: 656; and Craig and Feare, 2009: 723–725.

LECTOTYPE: AMNH 665565View Materials, male, collected in Holland, on 4 May 1827. From the 

Brehm Collection via the Rothschild Collection.

COMMENTS: In the original description, Brehm did not designate a type or mention the number of specimens he examined. Hartert (1918a: 10) listed the male Brehm specimen from Holland as the type of S. Hollandiae  , thereby designating it the lectotype, and noted a second specimen in the Rothschild Collection, a female collected on 8 May 1827, both marked ‘‘ Sturnus batavorum  .’’ The paralectotype is AMNH 665566, female, Holland, 8 May 1827.

According to Hartert (1918a: 10), batavorum  was ‘‘a manuscript name published as a nomen nudum by A.E. Brehm in 1866, which C.L. Brehm preferred afterwards, instead of hollandiae  . At that time authors often changed names according to their fancy. As the description agrees in every detail with the male, there can be no doubt that is the type of S. hollandiae  .’’
