Paradisea mirabilis Reichenow 

Paradisea mirabilis Reichenow, 1901: 186 (Umgegend von Friedrich-Wilhelmshafen)  .

Now considered a hybrid Paradisaea minor  X Seleucidis melanoleuca  . See Rothschild, 1903: 31–32; Rothschild, 1911: 358; Hartert, 1919: 130; Stresemann, 1930: 9–10; Mayr, 1962d: 204; Gilliard, 1969: 64–65; Fuller, 1995: 114–116; and Frith and Beehler, 1998: 516, pl. 15 (2).

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 679100View Materials, [adult male], collected in 1901, alledgedly in the neighborhood of Madang (= Friedrich-Wilhelmshafen), 05.18S, 145.47E ( Frith and Beehler, 1998: 569), now Papua New Guinea. From the Rothschild Collection.GoogleMaps 

COMMENTS: Reichenow had a single specimen when he named P. mirabilis  (it was figured in pl. 1, Journal für Ornithologie, 1902, without additional text); Rothschild (1903a: 32) placed it in the genus Janthothorax  . Even in the original description, Reichenow considered the specimen to be a hybrid between Paradisaea  and Seleucidis  . The holotype is missing the elongated central tail feathers, but they are present in specimens that Rothschild acquired later (AMNH 294648, 679099, and 679101).
