Chlamydera maculata macdonaldi   [sic] Mathews

Chlamydera maculata macdonaldi   [sic] Mathews, 1913b: 78 ( McDonald Ranges, Central Australia).

Now Chlamydera guttata guttata Gould, 1862   . See Mathews, 1926: 332; Hartert, 1929a: 57; Mayr and Jennings, 1952: 8–10; Mayr, 1962c: 180; Gilliard, 1969: 361–363; Schodde and Mason, 1999: 632–633; and Frith and Frith, 2004: 417– 418; 2009a: 403.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 679148 View Materials , unsexed, collected in the Macdonnell Ranges (spelled McDonald Ranges on the original label), 23.45S, 133.20E ( USBGN, 1957), Northern Territory, Australia, undated, from the Edwin Ashby Collection (no. 280). From the Mathews Collection (no. 3657) via the Rothschild Collection. GoogleMaps  

COMMENTS: Mathews apparently had the single specimen; it bears Ashby’s label, a Mathews Collection label marked ‘‘Type’’ with his catalog number 3657 (which was not otherwise mentioned), and a Rothschild type label. Mathews noted in the description that it was darker and had a much smaller bill than subguttata; Hartert (1929a: 57) dismissed it as ‘‘Bad specimen, bill half decayed, therefore appearing small.’’

A female obtained by S.A. White at Jay Water Hole in the Macdonnell Ranges on 3 September 1913 was not received by Mathews prior to his description of macdonaldi. It is now AMNH 679149 and bears a Mathews ‘‘Figured’’ label. It is the second female described by Mathews (1926: pl. 585, top fig., opp. p. 324; text p. 324) and the ‘‘Figured’’ label is so annotated by Hartert. It has no nomenclatural standing.
