Corvus meeki Rothschild 

Corvus meeki Rothschild, 1904: 21  (Bougainville Island).

Now Corvus meeki Rothschild, 1904  . See Hartert, 1919: 125; Mayr, 1955: 37–38; Vaurie, 1958: 8– 10; Blake and Vaurie, 1962: 266; Mayr and Diamond, 2001: 401; Dickinson, 2003: 513; Hadden, 2004: 232–233; and dos Anjos, 2009: 621–622.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 673987View Materials, adult male, collected on Bougainville Island , North Solomons Province, Papua New Guinea, on 2 May 1904, by Albert S. Meek (no. A.1719). From the Rothschild Collection. 

COMMENTS: In the original description, Rothschild gave Meek’s unique field number of the holotype and noted that he had a second male specimen. The paratype is AMNH 673986, adult male, collected on Bougainville on 6 May 1904, by Meek (no. A.1748). Rothschild and Hartert (1905: 268) listed these two specimens in their report on Meek’s entire collection made in the Solomon Islands in 1904. Other specimens were collected later.

This population has been variously considered a full species, part of a superspecies, or as a subspecies of Corvus woodfordi  . Most recent authors have considered it a full species.
