Astrapia splendidissima helios Mayr 

Astrapia splendidissima helios Mayr, 1936: 3  (Mt. Goliath, Oranje range, Dutch New Guinea).

Now Astrapia splendidissima helios Mayr, 1936  . See Mayr, 1962d: 192; Gilliard, 1969: 147–151; Cracraft, 1992: 21–22; Frith and Beehler, 1998: 253–257; and Frith and Frith, 2009b: 467.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 448981View Materials, adult male, collected on Mount Goliath , 04.41S, 139.50E ( Frith and Beehler, 1998: 569), Pegunungan Jayawijaya (= Oranje Mountains), Papua Province, Indonesia (formerly Dutch New Guinea), in January-February, 1911, by A.S. Meek. From the Rothschild Collection.GoogleMaps 

COMMENTS: In the original description, Mayr cited the AMNH number of the holotype and gave measurements of three adult males, four immature males, and five females. Rothschild and Hartert (1913) reported on the entire Meek collection from Dutch New Guinea and on page 522 reported two adult males, four juvenile males, and six females. The 11 paratypes, all collected on Mount Goliath between 15 January and 20 February 1911 and with sex recorded as given by Meek, are: AMNH 678042View Materials (Meek no. 5127), adult male  ; AMNH 678043View Materials (5463), AMNH 678044View Materials (5269), AMNH 678045View Materials (5150), AMNH 678046View Materials (5431), four immature males  ; AMNH 678047View Materials (5389), AMNH 678048View Materials (5268), AMNH 678049View Materials (5139), AMNH 678050View Materials (5128), AMNH 678051View Materials (5318), five females  ; AMNH 678052View Materials (–), [male molting to adult plumage]. Rothschild and Hartert (1913: 522) noted that the Meek label was missing from one of their specimens  ; at present two of those specimens have labels missing: the holotype and AMNH 567052View Materials. One of them should 

have Meek’s number 5271. Meek’s labels from this expedition are extremely brittle and subject to tearing. For an account of Meek’s trip to Mount Goliath, see Rothschild and Hartert (1913: 473–475) and LeCroy and Jansen (2011: 183).
