Epimachus astrapioides Rothschild 

Epimachus astrapioides Rothschild, 1897d: 22  (Dutch New Guinea).

Now considered a hybrid Epimachus fastosus  X Astrapia nigra  . See Hartert, 1911a: 604, pl. 7; Hartert, 1919: 129; Stresemann, 1930: 13; Rothschild, 1930: 16–17; Mayr, 1962d: 203; Gilliard, 1969: 63–65; Fuller, 1995: 50–53; Frith and Beehler, 1998: 508.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 679119View Materials, [adult male], purchased from van Renesse van Duivenbode, collected somewhere in Papua Province, Indonesia (formerly Dutch New Guinea). From the Rothschild Collection. 

COMMENTS: This specimen is generally accepted as a hybrid between Epimachus fastosus  and Astrapia nigra ( Stresemann, 1930: 13)  . It is illustrated by Hartert (1911a: 604 and pl. 7), by Fuller (1995: pl. 7), and by Frith and Beehler (1998: pl. 14, no. 1). Although nothing is known about where this single specimen was collected, it was presumably from somewhere on the Vogelkop as its putative parents occur there.
