Cyanocitta pulchra Lawrence  

Cyanocitta pulchra Lawrence, 1876: 163   ( Ecuador, Quito).

Now Cyanolyca pulchra ( Lawrence, 1876)   . See Hellmayr, 1934: 46–47; Blake and Vaurie, 1962; Dickinson, 2003: 505; and dos Anjos, 2009: 575.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 42301 View Materials , sex?, ‘‘Quito,’’ Ecuador, undated, from A.H. Alexander. From the George N. Lawrence Collection.  

COMMENTS: When Lawrence named this species, he apparently had the single specimen, which he had obtained from A.H. Alexander, a New York taxidermist ( Wynne, 1969: 4). A second specimen was cataloged as AMNH 42302, also a ‘‘Quito’’ specimen obtained from Alexander and also undated. I was unable to find this specimen in the collection but do not believe that Lawrence had more than one specimen when he named pulchra   .
