Nucifraga arquata C.L. Brehm 

Nucifraga arquata C.L. Brehm, 1855a: 66  (no exact locality given).

Now Nucifraga caryocatactes caryocatactes (Linnaeus, 1758)  . See Hartert, 1918a: 9; Vaurie, 1959: 156–157; Dickinson, 2003: 511; and dos Anjos, 2009: 611–612.

LECTOTYPE: AMNH 675482View Materials, male, collected in Kärnten Province (= Kärnthen), Austria, on 3 October 1836. From the Brehm Collection via the Rothschild Collection. 

COMMENTS: Brehm (1855a: 66) named the form ‘‘mit bogenförmigen’’ as N. arquata  . Hartert (1918a: 9) said of this specimen collected on 3 October 1836: ‘‘This specimen must be the type; it has on its label the name arquata  ( Nucifraga caryocatactes arquata  ) in C.L. Brehm’s handwriting, and shows the exceptionally curved (‘bogenförmigen’) bill.’’ In addition to Brehm’s label, it bears a Rothschild Museum label (printed ‘‘Brehm-Collection’’) and a Rothschild type label. On the Rothschild Museum label Hartert has written ‘‘No. 110’’ and on the type label ‘‘This or no. 116 Type of Nucifraga arquata Brehm.  ’’ The significance of these two numbers is not known; neither appears on Brehm’s label. Six additional Brehm specimens, AMNH 675477–675481, 675483, are from ‘‘Altenberg, Kärnthen,’’ a locality not mentioned by Brehm; none of them bears the name arquata  on the Brehm label, and they are not considered type material.
