Corvus enca celebensis Stresemann 

Corvus enca celebensis Stresemann, 1936: 368  (Rurukan, North Celebes).

Now Corvus enca celebensis Stresemann, 1936  . See Stresemann, 1940: 15–16; White and Bruce, 1986: 321; Coates et al., 1997: 414; Dickinson et al., 2004: 93–95; Dickinson et al., 2004b: 122; and dos Anjos, 2009: 619.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 299071View Materials, adult male, collected at Rurukan , 900 m, 01.20N, 124.48E (BirdLife International, 2001: 2609), north Sulawesi (= Celebes), Indonesia, on 17 February 1931, by Gerd Heinrich (no. 3753).GoogleMaps 

COMMENTS: In the original description, Stresemann gave Heinrich’s unique field number of the holotype but did not list the specimens he examined; however, he ( Stresemann, 1936: 359) noted that celebensis  was universally distributed on Sulawesi. Heinrich had collected for AMNH and ZMB, and types were to be deposited in AMNH, with the rest of the collection divided between the 

two institutions ( Stresemann, 1931: 7–9). Later, Stresemann (1940: 15–16) listed 24 specimens, giving the localities where they were collected. Sixteen of these, including the holotype, were deposited in AMNH. The 15 paratypes in AMNH are: Makassar, AMNH 299069, 299076, 299077, one male, two females; Paleleh, AMNH 299070, one male; Rurukan, AMNH 299072, 299073, 299079– 299081, two males, three females; Komersot, AMNH 299074, 299082, 299083, one male, two females; Wawo, AMNH 299075, 299084, one male, one female; Oeroe, AMNH 299078, female, all collected on Sulawesi between May 1930 and February 1932 by Gerd Heinrich. Steinheimer (2009: 25) reported four paratypes in ZMB from Rurukan and five additional specimens from other localities, which I believe should also be considered paratypes. This results in a total of 25 specimens. There apparently was a misprint in Stresemann’s sums as there is in fact a total of three males and four females from Makassar (one male, two females in AMNH and two males, two females in ZMB; S. Frahnert, personal commun.)
