Phonygammus aruensis Cracraft 

Phonygammus aruensis Cracraft, 1992: 10  (Sq. Wanoem Bay, Kobror Island, Aru Islands, West Irian).

Now Phonygammus keraudrenii aruensis Cracraft, 1992  . See Diamond, 1972: 326–327; Nunn and Cracraft, 1996; Frith and Beehler, 1998: 229– 240; Dickinson, 2003: 516; and Frith and Frith, 2009b: 464.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 677414View Materials, adult male, collected on Sungai (= Sg. as on label), Wanoembai , 06.02S, 134.18E ( Frith and Beehler, 1998: 571), Kobror Island , Aru Islands , Papua Province (= West Irian ), Indonesia, on 2 September 1900, by Heinrich Kühn (no. 2499). From the Rothschild Collection.GoogleMaps 

COMMENTS: Cracraft listed the AMNH number of the holotype in the original description and noted that he had four additional specimens in his type series, all collected by Kühn. The paratypes are: Trangan Island , Aru Islands, AMNH 677411View Materials (Kühn’s no. illegible), male, 14 September 1900  ; Sungai Wanoembai, Kobror Island , Aru Islands, AMNH 677412View Materials (2500), AMNH 677413View Materials (2498), AMNH 677415View Materials (2497) three males, 3–4 September 1900  .

The species Phonygammus keraudrenii  was included in the genus Manucodia  by Diamond (1972: 307–308), and this has been followed by Coates (1990: 437–439), Frith and Beehler (1998: 229) and Frith and Frith (2009b: 464), but the genus Phonygammus  has been retained by Cracraft (1992: 10), Nunn and Cracraft (1996), Schodde and Mason (1999: 525–526), and Dickinson (2003: 516). Recognition of Phonygammus  is followed here.

Described as a phylogenetic species by Cracraft, aruensis  has been included as a subspecies of Phonygammus keraudrenii  by Dickinson (2003: 516) and as a subspecies of Manucodia keraudrenii  by Frith and Beehler (1998: 232–233) and Frith and Frith (2009b: 464).

Sungai Wanoem Bay is the narrow strait that separates Kobror Island from Wokam Island in the Aru Islands.
