COMMENTS: Only adult males were mentioned in the original description, where Rothschild was said to have five specimens ‘‘collected by Dr. Guillemard and others.’’ No type was designated. Hartert (1919: 129), by listing as type the unique specimen collected on 9 November 1883 and bearing Guilemard’s label, designated it the lectotype.

The four paralectotypes, all adult males from Yapen Island, are: AMNH 678911View Materials, undated, from the Guillemard Collection  ; AMNH 678913View Materials, 10 November 1883, from the Guillemard Collection  ; AMNH 678914View Materials, 9 November 1883, collected by R. ff. Powell  ; AMNH 678915View Materials, undated, collector unknown. Other Yapen specimens that came to AMNH with the Rothschild Collection were either collected after the description was published or were not fully adult  .

Guillemard (1885c: 651–652) reported on the specimens of P. minor  collected on Yapen; the extemely large number of specimens collected may or may not have included any collected by Lt. R. ff. Powell, who was aboard the yacht Marchesa, owned by C.T. Kettlewell, on which the Guillemard party was traveling ( Guillemard, 1889: 286). Powell’s label is similar to Guillemard’s but has only his name printed on it.
