Falcinellus striatus atratus Rothschild and Hartert 

Falcinellus striatus atratus Rothschild and Hartert, 1911: 160  (Mt. Goliath, at altitudes of not less than 5000 ft).

Now Epimachus fastosus atratus ( Rothschild and Hartert, 1911)  . See Hartert, 1919: 130; Mayr, 1941; 1962d: 190; Gilliard, 1969: 137–141; Diamond, 1972: 328; Cracraft, 1992: 19; Frith and Beehler, 1998: 517; and Frith and Frith, 2009b: 479.

LECTOTYPE: AMNH 677957View Materials, adult male, collected on Mount Goliath , 04.41S, 139.50E ( Frith and Beehler, 1998: 569), Pegunungan Jayawijaya (= Oranje Mountains), Papua Province, Indonesia, on 12 January 1911, by Albert S. Meek (no. 5100). From the Rothschild Collection.GoogleMaps 

COMMENTS: No type was designated in the original description, with both male and female described. Rothschild and Hartert (1913: 522) listed one adult male, two juvenile males, three adult females, one juvenile female, along with Meek’s field numbers. All these specimens would have been available to Rothschild and Hartert when atratus was described. Hartert (1919: 130), by listing the adult male bearing Meek’s no. 5100 as the type, designated it the lectotype. Paralectotypes, all from Mount Goliath, are: AMNH 677958 (Meek no. 5369), female; AMNH 677959 (5401), immature male; AMNH 677960 (5370), AMNH 677961 (5126), AMNH 677962 (5306), females; AMNH 677963 (5413), immature female, all collected in January and February 1911 by Meek.

During his collecting in western New Guinea, Meek was accompanying Dutch exploratory expeditions ( Rothschild and Hartert, 1913; LeCroy and Jansen, 2011: 182–183). No doubt as a gesture of appreciation, an adult male specimen was sent by Meek to the ‘‘Governor-General of the Dutch East Indies’’ ( Rothschild and Hartert, 1913: 522); this specimen was not part of the type series.

In the ornithological literature, the species name has been variously spelled fastosus  and fastuosus  . Hermann (1783: 194) described this species as Promerops fastuosus  but later, on page 202 of the same publication, corrected the spelling to fastosus  , as noted by Frith and Frith (2009b: 479). For use of Epimachus  instead of Falcinellus  , see Laubmann (1920: 160); and for use of fastosus  instead of striatus  , see Stresemann (1920: 328).
