Cyanocorax ortoni Lawrence 

Cyanocorax ortoni Lawrence, 1876: 166  (North Peru, Pacasmayo and Ticapa).

Now Cyanocorax mystacalis (Geoffroy St. Hilaire, 1835)  . See Hellmayr, 1934: 22–23; Blake and Vaurie, 1962: 224; Dickinson, 2003: 506; and dos Anjos, 2009: 583.

SYNTYPE: AMNH 42337, adult male, collected at Tecapa (= Ticapa), ca. 07.21S,

79.09W ( Stephens and Traylor, 1983), La Libertad, Peru, on 22 October 1874, by James Orton.

COMMENTS: In the original description, Lawrence noted that Orton had collected two specimens, the other one at Pacasmayo. The second specimen was probably returned to Professor Orton at Vassar College and is no longer in that collection, nor is it among the Vassar specimens deposited in NYSM (J. Kirchman, personal commun.). The AMNH syntype was presented to Lawrence by Orton, and is so noted on the Lawrence Collection label, and, remarkably, it still retains Orton’s original label giving the place and date of collection as well as the sex of the specimen.
