Parotia carolae clelandiae Gilliard 

Parotia carolae clelandiae Gilliard, 1961: 5  (Telefolmin, Victor Emanuel Mountains, Mandated Territory of New Guinea, 5000 feet).

Now Parotia carolae clelandiorum Gilliard, 1961  . See Mayr, 1962d: 194; Gilliard, 1969: 176–181; Coates, 1990: 472–475; Cracraft, 1992: 26–27; Frith and Beehler, 1998: 298–304; and Frith and Frith, 2009b: 472.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 708171View Materials, adult male, collected at Telefomin (= Telefolmin ), 5000 ft, 05.07S, 141.38E ( Frith and Beehler, 1998: 571), Victor Emanuel Mountains, West Sepik Province, Papua New Guinea (formerly in Mandated Territory of New Guinea), on 13 May 1954, by Margaret and E. Thomas Gilliard.GoogleMaps 

COMMENTS: Gilliard cited the AMNH number of the holotype in the original description and gave measurements for two males and one female. The two paratypes are: Telefomin, 4800 ft, AMNH 675925View Materials, male molting into adult plumage, 25 April 1954  ; AMNH 675926View Materials, female, 22 March 1954. Because Gilliard named this subspecies in honor of Brigadier Donald M. Cleland and his wife, Rachel, the original spelling should have been clelandiorum ( ICZN, 1999: 37, Art. 31.1.2)  .

AMNH 811999, adult male, was not part of the type series. It was captured alive, photographed, and deposited at the Honolulu Zoo in 1954 in the care of Paul Breeze, then director, with the understanding that when it died it would come to AMNH. It died in 1968 and was frozen. A chance question to Breeze in August 1975 led to its being shipped to AMNH frozen, where it was made into a study skin by David Schwendeman, AMNH taxidermist.
