Cracticus cassicus hercules Mayr 

Cracticus cassicus hercules Mayr, 1940: 3  (Kaileuna Island, Trobriand Islands).

Now Cracticus cassicus hercules Mayr, 1940  . See Mayr, 1941: 165; Amadon, 1962b: 284; Coates, 1990: 376–377; Dickinson, 2003: 463; and Russell and Rowley, 2009: 339.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 329975View Materials, adult male, collected on Kaileuna Island , 08.30S, 150.55E (Times Atlas  ), Trobriand Islands , Milne Bay Province, Papua New Guinea, on 2 November 1928, by Hannibal Hamlin on the Whitney South Sea Expedition (no. 143).GoogleMaps 

COMMENTS: In the original description, Mayr gave the AMNH number of the holotype and included specimens from Kaileuna, Kitava, and Kiriwina islands in the Trobriands and Fergusson and Goodenough islands in the D’Entrecasteaux Islands . He gave measurements for 10 males and eight females from the Trobriands and five males and three females from the D’Entrecasteaux Islands , but additional specimens were available to him. The following specimens are paratypes of hercules: Kaileuna, AMNH 224052View Materials, 224053View Materials, 329976–329978View Materials, two males, three females, 1–2 November 1928  ; Kitava , AMNH 224054–224058View Materials, 329979–329981View Materials, six males, two females, 10–30 October 1928  ; Kiriwina , AMNH 224059–224061View Materials, 329966– 329970View Materials, 673325View Materials, four males, five females, 6–8 November 1928, 15 February 1895  ; Fergusson , AMNH 224062View Materials, male, 14 November 1928, AMNH 329971–329974View Materials, 673323View Materials, 673324View Materials, four males, two females, 12–13 November 1928, 6, 19 September 1894  ; Goodenough , AMNH 673321View Materials, male, 4 April 1913, AMNH 673322View Materials, female, 17 December 1896. Of these paratypes, I did not find AMNH 224062View Materials and AMNH 329971 in the collection  ; they were perhaps exchanged to other institutions without the catalog having been so marked.
