AEluroedus [sic] jobiensis Rothschild  

AEluroedus [sic] jobiensis Rothschild, 1895b: 26   (Island of Jobi, New Guinea).

Now Ailuroedus melanotis jobiensis Rothschild, 1895   . See Hartert, 1919: 127; Mayr, 1962c: 174; Gilliard, 1969: 266–273; Diamond, 1985: 81; and Frith and Frith, 2004: 235–238; 2009a: 393– 394.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 679724 View Materials , unsexed, said to be from Pulau Yapen (= Japen or Jobi Island), 01.05S, 136.02E ( Frith and Beehler, 1998: 572), Papua Province, Indonesia, purchased from van Renesse van Duivenbode. From the Rothschild Collection. GoogleMaps  

COMMENTS: Rothschild apparently had the single specimen when he named this form. A note on the reverse of the Rothschild label reads: ‘‘Said to be from Bruijn’s Hunters. Jobi acc. [= according to?] letter.’’ According to Hartert (1919: 127) it apparently was prepared by Bruijn’s hunters, but the locality was probably incorrect; he considered it a synonym of arfakianus. Van Renesse van Duivenbode was known for carelessness concerning specimen localities. Mayr (1962c: 174) thought that it probably came from the north coast of New Guinea, east of Geelvink Bay, and this has proven to be correct. Later studies have shown that this subspecies occurs in the northern coastal ranges ( Diamond, 1985: 81), on the Idenburg River ( Rand, 1942: 499), and probably also on the Foja Mountains ( Beehler et al., 2012: 101).
