Aplonis panayensis leptorhynchus Stresemann 

Aplonis panayensis leptorhynchus Stresemann, 1913b: 377 (Pini)  .

Now Aplonis panayensis leptorhyncha Stresemann, 1913  . See Hartert, 1919: 135; Meyer de Schauensee, 1940: 41–42; Ripley, 1944: 405–406; Amadon, 1956: 18; 1962a: 84; van Marle and Voous, 1988: 195–196; Dickinson, 2003: 652; and Craig and Feare, 2009: 720.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 667594View Materials, ‘‘female,’’ collected on Pulau Pini (= Pini Island), 

00.08N, 98.40E ( van Marle and Voous, 1988: 214), Batu Islands, off the western coast of Sumatra, Indonesia, undated, by Hugo Raap (no. 34). From the Rothschild Collection.

COMMENTS: In the original description, Stresemann gave Raap’s number of the holotype but not the sex, noted that it was in the Rothschild Collection, and gave measurements for five specimens of leptorhynchus. The holotype is the only specimen that includes Raap’s original label with his no. 34 and is sexed as a female. Apparently, both Stresemann and Hartert doubted the sexing; Hartert (1919: 135) included the sex in quotation marks. The four paratypes are: AMNH 667595–667598View Materials, all collected on Pini by Raap  ; none are dated.

Van Steenis-Kruseman (1950: 421) gave details of Raap’s plant collecting in the Batu Islands; he was on P. Pini 28 October–14 November 1896 and 4–14 January 1897. Presumably he was collecting birds at the same time.

Meyer de Schauensee (1940: 41–42), Ripley (1944: 405–406) and van Marle and Voous (1988: 195–196) synonymized leptorhyncha with pachistorhina based on overlap in wing measurements, but Amadon (1956: 18) and Craig and Feare (2009: 720) recognized it, noting its very slender bill and pure blue gloss on the plumage.
