Temenuchus pagodarum afghanorum Koelz, 1939: 73  (Tagau, Afghanistan).

Now Sturnus pagodarum (Gmelin, 1789)  . See Amadon, 1962a: 106; Feare and Craig, 1999: 175–177; Dickinson, 2003: 655; Rasmussen and Anderton, 2005: 582; Lovette and Rubenstein, 2007: 1031–1056; and Craig and Feare, 2009: 732.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 466605View Materials, adult male, collected at Tagan (= Tagau), Afghanistan, on 8 June 1937, by Walter Koelz. 

COMMENTS: In the original description, Koelz designated as type of afghanorum a specimen with the above data and listed his paratypes as four specimens from Mamakhel, 20–24 May 1937 and three from Chandan on 7 June 1937. Of the seven paratypes, the following six came to AMNH: Māmā Kheyl (= Mamakhel), AMNH 466599View Materials, 466603View Materials, 466604View Materials, two males, one female, 23–24 May 1937  ; Chandan, AMNH 466600–466602View Materials, two males, one female, 7 June 1937. The type locality of afghanorum was spelled Tagau on Koelz’s label and Tagan by Vaurie (1959: 125)  .

This species has been included in three different genera by recent authors: Sturnus, Amadon (1962a: 106)  , Dickinson (2003: 655), Lovette and Rubenstein (2007: 1031–1056); Temenuchus, Feare and Craig (1999: 175– 177)  , Rasmussen and Anderton (2005: 582); and Sturnia, Craig and Feare (2009: 732)  .
