Paradigalla brevicauda Rothschild and Hartert 

Paradigalla brevicauda Rothschild and Hartert, 1911: 159  (Mt. Goliath, Central Dutch New Guinea).

Now Paradigalla brevicauda Rothschild and Hartert, 1911  . See Rothschild and Hartert, 1913: 523; Hartert, 1919: 128; Mayr, 1962d: 189; Gilliard, 1969: 132–133; Coates, 1990: 439–440; Cracraft, 1992: 17; Frith and Beehler, 1998: 244–249; Frith and Frith, 2009b: 465.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 678355, adult male, collected on Mount Goliath, not less than 5000 ft, 04.41S, 139.50E ( Frith and Beehler, 1998: 569), Pegunungan Jayawijaya (= Oranje Mountains), Papua Province, Indonesia (formerly Dutch New Guinea), on 22 January 1911, by Albert S. Meek (no. A. 5164). From the Rothschild Collection.

COMMENTS: Rothschild and Hartert gave Meek’s field number of the holotype in the original description and discussed characteristics of female and immature male specimens without enumerating them. Rothschild and Hartert (1913: 523) listed the 19 specimens collected by Meek and gave his field numbers. Of these, 17 came to AMNH with the Rothschild Collection. The 16 paratypes in AMNH, all collected on Mount Goliath in 1911, are: AMNH 678349–678354, 678356– 678360, 11 males, collected 14 January–11 February (Meek numbers 5323, 5357, 5250, 5467, 5462, 5322, 5123, 5145, 5138, 5231, 5220, respectively); AMNH 678361–678365, five females, collected between 14 January and 20 February (Meek numbers 5428, 5247, 5124, 5191, 5340, respectively). Of these, AMNH 678356 and AMNH 678365 were exchanged to FMNH in the 1960s. Apparently two specimens were exchanged by Rothschild before the collection came to AMNH. While the Meek numbers for specimens given by Rothschild and Hartert (1913: 523) do not always match the numbers on the specimens, the error usually seems to be typographical. It appears that the two Meek specimens not in AMNH bear his numbers 5099 and 5120; these are also paratypes.
