Aplonis insularis Mayr 

Aplonis insularis Mayr, 1931a: 19  (Rennell Island).

Now Aplonis insularis Mayr, 1931  . See Amadon, 1962a: 80; Dickinson, 2003: 651; Mayr and Diamond, 2001: 399–400; Mayr and Hamlin, 1931; and Craig and Feare, 2009: 718.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 226540View Materials, adult male, collected on Rennell Island , Solomon Islands, on 21 May 1930, by William F. Coultas, Walter J. Eyerdam, and Hannibal Hamlin on the Whitney South Sea Expedition (no. 40199). 

COMMENTS: In the original description, Mayr gave the AMNH number of the holotype but did not enumerate his specimens, although he described males, females, immatures, and juveniles. Excluding the holotype, all specimens of insularis  collected on Rennell Island by the Whitney South Sea Expedition in 1928 and 1930 are paratypes: AMNH 223118View Materials, 223120View Materials, 223121View Materials, one male, two females, 28 August–1 September 1928  ; AMNH 226481View Materials, male, 18 May 1930  ; AMNH 226537–226539View Materials, three males, 16–18 May 1930  ; AMNH 839381–839384View Materials, four females, 27–31 August 1928  .

AMNH 226481 had been mistakenly cataloged as Turdus poliocephalus rennellianus  in the catalog and was noted as ‘‘not found’’ by LeCroy (2005: 45) when listing type material for the Turdidae  ; at some point it had been correctly reidentified as Aplonis insularis  and the specimen placed with that species without the catalog having been marked. AMNH 839381–839384 had previously been given invalid catalog numbers and have now been given four current numbers.
