Astrapia splendidissima elliottsmithi Gilliard 

Astrapia splendidissima elliottsmithi Gilliard, 1961: 3  (Mt. Ifal, Victor Emanuel Mountains, Territory of New Guinea, 7200 feeet).

Now Astrapia splendidissima elliottsmithorum Gilliard, 1961  . See Mayr, 1962d: 192; Gilliard, 1969: 147–151; Coates, 1990: 448–449; Cracraft, 1992: 21–22; Frith and Beehler, 1998: 253–257; and Frith and Frith, 2009b: 467.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 648726View Materials, adult male, Mount Ifal , 7200 ft, 04.59S, 141.43E ( Frith and Beehler, 1998: 569), Victor Emanuel Mountains, West Sepik Province, Papua New Guinea (formerly in Territory of New Guinea), on 11 May 1954, by E. Thomas and Margaret Gilliard.GoogleMaps 

COMMENTS: In the original description, Gilliard gave the AMNH number of the holotype and measured six adult males, four subadult males, and 11 females from both the Victor Emanuel and Hindenburg ranges. The following specimens, all collected by Gilliard in 1954, are paratypes: Victor Emanuel Mountains , Mount Ifal, AMNH 765907– 765911View Materials, three adult males, two females, 6– 10 May  ; Deikimdikin , AMNH 765919– 765923View Materials, three immature males, one female, one female?, 20–22 April. Hindenburg Mountains, Ilkivip, AMNH 765912–765918View Materials, two adult males, one immature male, 4 four females, 2–7 April. Also a paratype is AMNH 765924View Materials, tail only, collected in the Ferramin Valley, the locality of which is uncertain. Of these paratypes, AMNH 765909View Materials and 765910 were exchanged to FMNH in the 1960s and AMNH 765922View Materials was given to the PNGM. Probably there were several females measured in the field but not collected  .

In the original description of this form, Gilliard noted that it was named for District Commissioner Sydney Elliott-Smith and his wife, Myola; in such case the plural masculine genitive Latin ending, - orum, should have been used (ICZN, 1999: 37, Art. 31.1.2).
