Cracticus tibicen intermissus Mathews 

Cracticus tibicen intermissus Mathews, 1912a: 372  (Victoria).

Now considered an intergrade between Gymnorhina tibicen terraereginae  and tyrannia or undifferentiated from them. See Amadon, 1951: 20–21; 1962b: 169; Schodde and Mason, 1999: 545–550; Hughes et al., 2001: 25–34; Dickinson, 2003: 463; Toon et al., 2003: 337– 343; Toon et al., 2007: 2525–2547; and Russell and Rowley, 2009: 339–340.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 673014View Materials, adult female, collected at Bendigo (as on label), 36.48S, 144.21E (Times Atlas  ), Victoria, Australia, on 30 March 1907, by Thomas Tregellas. From the Mathews Collection (no. 5077) via the Rothschild Collection.GoogleMaps 

COMMENTS: In the original description, Mathews gave his catalog number of the holotype and the range as ‘‘ Victoria, South Australia.’’ He apparently did not have any specimens from South Australia. I have found only one definite paratype: Bendigo , AMNH 673013View Materials (Mathews no. 5076), male, 30 March 1907, collected by Tregellas. There are two additional Mathews specimens that are possible paratypes, but I did not find them in his catalog and don’t know when they came into his possession: AMNH 673016View Materials, female, Kerang, April 1905, collector  ?; AMNH 673021View Materials, male, Nagambie, 4 March 1908, collected by C.F. Cole. 

Although this Mathews form was not mentioned specifically by Schodde and Mason (1999: 445–450), the holotype appears to come from the zone of intergradation between Cracticus tibicen terraereginae  and tyrannica. But see the results of recent mtDNA results obtained by Hughes et al. (2001) and Toon et al. (2003, 2007).
