Aplonis fuscus hullianus Mathews 

Aplonis fuscus hullianus Mathews, 1912a: 451  (Lord Howe Island).

Now Aplonis fusca hulliana Mathews, 1912  . See Hartert, 1928: 192; Amadon, 1962a: 79; Schodde and Mason, 1999: 653–654; and Dickinson, 2003: 653.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 668044View Materials, unsexed, collected on Lord Howe Island , 31.28S, 159.09EGoogleMaps 

(Times Atlas  ), Australia, undated, by (or for) Henry H. Travers. From the Mathews Collection (no. 9361) via the Rothschild Collection.

COMMENTS: Mathews, in the original description, listed his catalog number of the holotype but did not mention other specimens. Opposite his catalog number 9361, Mathews noted that he had obtained this specimen from Rothschild, but a Rothschild Collection label is no longer on the specimen. In addition to Travers’ label, and Mathews and Rothschild type labels, the specimen bears a small metal label imprinted with the number ‘‘0.1486.’’

Mathews (1928: 55) listed this subspecies and gave descriptions of a male and a female, both collected after the description of hulliana; there is no indication that he had more than one specimen when he named the form.

Hartert (1928: 192) listed this specimen as the type of hulliana and noted the uncertainty as to whether the specimen was collected by Travers himself or was collected for him by someone else. The species is considered to be extinct and was not listed by Craig and Feare (2009), but was discussed by Hume and Walters (2012: 275–276).
