Semioptera wallacei  var. H almaherae Salvadori

Semioptera wallacei  var. Halmaherae Salvadori, 1881: 573 (Halmahera).

Now Semioptera wallacii halmaherae Salvadori, 1881  . See Mayr, 1962d: 188; Gilliard, 1969: 121– 126; Frith and Beehler, 1998: 417–427; and Frith and Frith, 2009b: 484–485.

SYNTYPE: AMNH 678719, [female plumage], collected on Halmahera Island, 01.00N, 128.00E ( White and Bruce, 1986: 490), Moluccas, Indonesia, undated, by A.A. Bruijn’s hunters. From the Rothschild Collection.

COMMENTS: When Salvadori named halmaherae, he did not designate a type; rather, he listed 50 syntypes in his own and in other collections, with each identified by a letter. The above syntype is identified as specimen ‘‘t’’’ on the original label and on the Rothschild label. It has not previously been recognized as a type. There are an additional eight syntypes in MSNG (see Arbocco et al., 1979: 247) and 11 in RMNH (see Dekker and Quaisser, 2006: 61).

For discussions about the spelling of this specific name, see McAlpine (1979: 108–110), LeCroy (1983), LeCroy (1988), LeCroy and Bock (1989), Mlíkovský (1989), and for the decision on conservation of the spelling Semioptera wallacii  , see ICZN (1990).

‘‘Pajahe,’’ written on the original label, is the local name for this species (C. Violani, personal commun.).
