Now Corvus corone sharpii Oates, 1889  . See Meinertzhagen, 1926: 109; Hartert, 1928: 189; Blake and Vaurie, 1962: 272; Madge and Burn, 1994: 159–161; Shirihai, 1996: 573–575; Dickinson, 2003: 513; Dickinson et al., 2004c: 95– 102; and dos Anjos, 2009: 630–631.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 675132View Materials, adult male, collected in the Candia District, 2000 ft, Crete, Greece, on 13 June (not May) 1920, by Richard Meinertzhagen. From the Rothschild Collection. 

COMMENTS: Meinertzhagen based his description of minos on four males and one female from Crete and noted that the type, a male, collected at Candia, Crete, on 13.v.20, was in the Rothschild Collection. While the month of collection of the holotype was given as May by Meinertzhagen , on the original label the month is clearly given as ‘‘6.’’ In addition to the holotype, three paratypes also came to AMNH with the Rothschild Collection : Candia District, AMNH 675133View Materials, 675134View Materials, male and female, 29 June 1920  ; Halmyos , AMNH 675135View Materials, male, 9 June 1920, all collected by Meinertzhagen.
