Manucodia comrii trobriandi Mayr 

Manucodia comrii trobriandi Mayr, 1936: 3 (Kaileuna, Trobriand Islands)  .

Now Manucodia comrii trobriandi Mayr, 1936  . See Mayr, 1962d: 185; Gilliard, 1969: 102–104; Coates, 1990: 436–437; Cracraft, 1992: 9–10; Frith and Beehler, 1998: 224–229; and Frith and Frith, 2009b: 463–464.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 224342View Materials, adult male, collected on Kaileuna Island , 08.30S, 150.55E (PNG, 1984), Trobriand Islands , Milne Bay Province, Papua New Guinea, on 2 November 1928, by Hannibal Hamlin (no. 137) on the Whitney South Sea Expedition.GoogleMaps 

COMMENTS: Mayr gave the AMNH number of the holotype in the original description and measurements for 12 males and 10 females from Kiriwina and Kaileuna islands. There are 22 specimens from Kiriwina and Kaileuna in the type series, but 13 are sexed as males and nine as females. The 21 paratypes, all collected by Hannibal Hamlin, are: Kaileuna Island, AMNH 224338–224341View Materials, 224343–224346View Materials, 330444–330451View Materials, nine males, seven females, 1–3 November 1928  ; Kiriwina Island , AMNH 224347–224350View Materials, 330452View Materials, three males, two females, 7–8 November 1928. AMNH 224347View Materials was exchanged to ZMB in July of 1936 and is now ZMB 36.518View Materials ( Steinheimer, 2005: 10)  .

Of recent authors, only Cracraft considered Manucodia comrii  monotypic, although Frith and Beehler (1998: 226) and Frith and Frith (2009b: 463) noted that the two subspecies are poorly differentiated.
