Cissilopha melanocyanea chavezi Miller and Griscom 

Cissilopha melanocyanea chavezi Miller and Griscom, 1925: 8  (Matagalpa, Nicaragua).

Now Cyanocorax melanocyaneus chavezi ( Miller and Griscom, 1925)  . See Hellmayr, 1934: 40–41; Blake and Vaurie, 1962: 219; Dickinson, 2003: 505; dos Anjos, 2009: 579; and Martínez and Will, 2010: 75.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 101402View Materials, adult male, collected at Matagalpa, 12.52N, 85.58W (Times Atlas  ), Nicaragua, on 23 March 1907, by William B. Richardson.GoogleMaps 

COMMENTS: The AMNH number of the holotype was cited in the original description and nine paratypes were listed. Paratypes in AMNH are: Nicaragua, Rio Coco, AMNH 103437View Materials, male, 17 November 1908  ; Ocotal , AMNH 102968–102970View Materials, one male, two females, May 1908  ; San Rafael del Norte , AMNH 101404View Materials, female, 4 April 1907  ; Matagalpa, AMNH 101403View Materials, female, 2 March 1907, AMNH 144800View Materials, female, 8 April 1917, AMNH 423534View Materials, male, 18 January 1917, all collected by Richardson or W. deW. Miller, L. Griscom, and Richardson. Honduras, AMNH 42293View Materials, sex?, undated, from the Lawrence Collection  .

Miller and Griscom did not include AMNH 42292 from the Lawrence Collection, another specimen from Honduras, in their type series, and they discuss how it differed from their series, including AMNH 42293. It is now included with the nominate subspecies in the AMNH collection.

Howell in Martínez and Will (2010: 75) thought that the species is ‘‘best regarded as monotypic,’’ but most other authors have recognized chavezi.
