Diphyllodes magnificus intermedius Hartert 

Diphyllodes magnificus intermedius Hartert, 1930: 36  (Snow Mountains, 2,500 feet).

Now Cicinnurus magnificus chrysopterus Elliot, 1873  . See Mayr, 1962d: 198; Gilliard, 1969: 201–210; Diamond, 1972: 310–311, 317; Coates, 1990: 496–507; Cracraft, 1992: 32–34; Frith and Beehler, 1998: 391–400; and Frith and Frith, 2009b: 483.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 678407View Materials, adult male, collected in the Pegunungan Maoke (= Snow Mountains), 2500 ft, 04.00, 138.00E ( USBGN, 1982), Papua Province, Indonesia, on 13 August 1910, by Albert S. Meek (no. 4604). From the Rothschild Collection. 

COMMENTS: Hartert cited Meek’s field number in the original description and gave his type series as three males and two females as well as ‘‘half a dozen fully adult males from the Kapare, Waitakwa, Utakwa valleys.’’ Meek collected three males and three females ( Rothschild and Hartert, 1913: 521) on the Setekwa River, 04.54S, 137. 19E (USBGN, 1982), a tributary of the Otakwa (= Utakwa) River, in the lower reaches of the Snow Moutains ( Rothschild and Hartert, 1913: 473; LeCroy and Jansen, 2011: 182). I have considered the five specimens in addition to the type to be paratypes of interme- dius: AMNH 678408 (Meek no. 4552), adult male, 29 July 1910; AMNH 678409 (4712), immature male, 4 September 1910; AMNH 678410–678412 (4716, 4642, 4919), three females, 26 August–29 October 1910. The ‘‘half dozen fully adult males’’ may have been borrowed from the Dutch and comparisons made with Meek’s material.

Diamond (1972: 310–311, 317) suggested combining Diphyllodes  and Cicinnurus  in Cicinnurus  and this has been followed by Coates (1990: 496), Frith and Beehler (1998: 392–393), and Frith and Frith (2009b: 483). The last two references also included intermedius  as a synonym of chrysopterus, as did Cracraft (1992: 33).
