Pyrgita rupestris C.L. Brehm  

Pyrgita rupestris C.L. Brehm, 1831: 264   (Er lebt nur in manchen Jahren in Saalthale und brütet selten daselbst.)

Now Petronia petronia petronia (Linnaeus, 1766)   . See Hartert, 1918a: 14; Vaurie, 1959: 584–585; Moreau and Greenway, 1962: 24; and Dickinson, 2003: 718.

LECTOTYPE: AMNH 456560 View Materials , adult male, collected at Lobeda (= Lobedaburg, as on label), 50.53N, 11.36E (Times Atlas), near Jena , Germany, on 15 June 1816. From the Brehm Collection via the Rothschild Collection. GoogleMaps  

COMMENTS: This specimen is one of four Brehm specimens labeled rupestris   communis that came to AMNH with the Rothschild Collection. It was listed as the type by Hartert (1918a: 14), who thereby designated it the lectotype. As he noted, Brehm had written on his label that the specimen was ‘‘taken from nest on the Lobedaburg near Jena, 15.vi.1816, died in cage, 10.x.1816.’’ Tied to the lectotype is AMNH 456561, female juvenile, taken with the male on 15 June 1816, but apparently not kept in captivity. It is a paralectotype of rupestris   . Because it is tied to the adult male, it is kept in the type collection with it. The other two specimens labeled rupestris   communis were collected prior to the 1831 publication of rupestris   but are not specifically mentioned in the description: AMNH 456562, male juvenile, and AMNH 456563, female juvenile, collected at Lobeda near Jena on 20 June 1828. They are also tied together.
