COMMENTS: Mayr and Gilliard gave the AMNH number of the holotype in the original description and gave measurements for five males and five females, the range being Mount Hagen. Specimens collected on Mount Kubor, Mount Wilhelm, and at Nondugl are not included. Mount Hagen specimens, collected in 1950, are paratypes of bloodi: AMNH 705512–705525, 788298– 788306, 802648, six adult males, four immature males, one male juvenile, 10 females, one female?, two sex?, all collected at Base Camp, 8200–8300 ft, 1–24 July 1950, by E.T. Gilliard. Of these 705518 and 705521 were sent to AM in 1958.

Mayr and Gilliard (1954) reported on Gillard’s 1950 and 1952 expeditions, but only the Mount Hagen specimens collected in 1950 were included in the description of bloodi.
