Strepera versicolor vieilloti Mathews 

Strepera versicolor vieilloti Mathews, 1912a: 444  (Victoria).

Now Strepera versicolor versicolor (Latham, 1801)  . See Amadon, 1951: 29; 1962b: 171–172; Schodde and Mason, 1999: 557–560; Dickinson, 2003: 464; and Russell and Rowley, 2009: 341– 342.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 673716View Materials, adult female, collected at Olinda , 37.51S, 145.22E ( USBGN, 1957), Victoria, Australia, on 14 April 1911, by Thomas Tregellas (no. 878). From the Mathews Collection (no. 9044) via the Rothschild Collection.GoogleMaps 

COMMENTS: In the original description, Mathews cited his catalog number of the holotype and gave the range as ‘‘ Victoria, South Australia.’’ I was unable to decide which, if any, of Mathews’ specimens from South Australia he considered to be vieilloti  , especially as he accepted Sharpe’s S. v. intermedia ( Mathews, 1912a: 445)  and had labeled many of his specimens as intermedia  . The following two specimens from Victoria may be considered paratypes: AMNH 673715 (Mathews no. 8057), male (not sexed by collector), Olinda, undated; AMNH 673725 (8056), female (not sexed by collector), Healesville, undated (both cataloged by Mathews on 1 March 1911, before the publication of vieilloti  ). AMNH 673728 (5694), sex?, Gippsland, undated, is not considered a paratype. While the catalog number should indicate an early acquisition of the specimen, this is a specimen written into a space in the catalog that had been occupied by another specimen that Mathews no longer possessed (had exchanged?), and there is no indication when Mathews cataloged it! Other AMNH specimens from Victoria either had never been in Mathews’ collection, were labeled intermedia  by Mathews, or were collected or cataloged after the 31 January 1912 publication date of vieilloti  .
