Nucifraga platyrhynchos C.L. Brehm 

Nucifraga platyrhynchos C.L. Brehm, 1833: 973  , 974 (Ein Stück meiner Sammlung wurde bei Greifswald, ein anderes, ein Weibchen, in der hiesigen Gegend, beide im September 1821, erlegt).

Now Nucifraga caryocatactes caryocatactes (Linnaeus, 1758)  . See Hartert, 1918a: 9; Vaurie, 1959: 156–158; Dickinson, 2003: 511; and dos Anjos, 2009: 611–612.

LECTOTYPE: AMNH 675462View Materials, female ‘‘pr. auct.’’ (primo auctumno), Roda River valley (= Rodathal), Germany. From the Brehm Collection via the Rothschild Collection. 

COMMENTS: No type was designated in the original description, but Brehm had at least two specimens. Part of Brehm’s original label is missing from this specimen, but ‘‘ tyrhynchos ’’ remains. The date is also missing, but Hartert has written ‘‘ September 1821 ’’ on the Rothschild Collection label. On the reverse of the Rothschild type label is the following note by Hartert: ‘‘Dies muss das in Sept. 1821 erlegte ♀ sein, das Isis 1833 p. 974 erwähnt ist.’’ Hartert (1918a: 9) listed the above specimen as the type, thereby designating it the lectotype, and wrote: ‘‘This must be the type. No specimen from Greifswald can be traced, and the Nutcrackers that appear in autumn and winter in Pommerania are almost without exceptions long-billed Siberian wanderers, N. caryocatactes macrorhynchos  .’’
