Austrartamus melanops Normani Mathews  

Austrartamus melanops Normani Mathews, 1923b: 255   (Normanton, Gulf of Carpentaria).

Now Artamus cinereus normani ( Mathews, 1923)   . See Mathews, 1930: 637; Mayr, 1962b: 164–165; Mees, 1982: 160–165; Storr, 1984: 170; Schodde and Mason, 1999: 565–567; Dickinson, 2003: 464; and Rowley and Russell, 2009b: 307.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 665020 View Materials , adult male, collected at Normanton , 17.40S, 141.05E (Times Atlas   ), Queensland, Australia, on 29 November 1913, by Robin Kemp (no. 3542). From the Mathews Collection via the Rothschild Collection. GoogleMaps  

COMMENTS: The original description reads: ‘‘The bird figured and described on p. 246, from Normanton, Gulf of Carpentaria, can be called Austrartamus melanops Normani   , subsp. n. ’’ AMNH 665020, in addition to Kemp’s label, a Rothschild Museum label printed ‘‘Ex. Coll. G.M. Mathews,’’ and a Rothschild type label, also bears a Mathews’ ‘‘Figured’’ label. The specimen appears as the middle figure in Mathews (1923b: pl. 477, opp. p. 244), labeled Austrartamus cinereus   . Kemp’s label data and the measurements written by Mathews on the reverse of Kemp’s label agree with those published for the type by Mathews (1923b: 246). Specimens collected in 1913 and 1914 by Kemp were only partly cataloged by Mathews; this specimen was not.

See Mees (1982: 160–165) and Schodde and Mason (1999: 565–567) for a review of the complicated history of the nomenclature of A. cinereus   and the latter for use of normani   as the valid name for the northeast Queensland population.
