Corvus littoralis C.L. Brehm  

Corvus littoralis C.L. Brehm, 1831: 164   (Er bewohnt die nördlichen Seeküsten unseres Vaterlandes).

Now Corvus corax corax Linnaeus, 1758   . See Hartert and Kleinschmidt, 1901: 40; Hartert, 1918a: 7; Blake and Vaurie, 1962: 280; Dickinson, 2003: 514–515; and dos Anjos, 2009: 638– 639.

LECTOTYPE: AMNH 674879 View Materials , adult female, collected on Rügen Island , 54.25N, 13.24E ( USBGN, 1959), Germany, on 27 December 1826 (not 1820). From the Brehm Collection via the Rothschild Collection. GoogleMaps  

COMMENTS: No type was designated in the original description. Hartert and Kleinschmidt (1901: 40) listed their Brehm specimen ‘‘2b’’ of this form from Rügen Island and collected on 27 December 1826 as the type of littoralis   , thereby designating it the lectotype. It is the only specimen bearing these data and it is marked ‘‘2b’’ on the reverse of Brehm’s label. Unfortunately, the Rothschild type label was tied on no. ‘‘2a,’’ now AMNH 674878 View Materials , male, Rügen Island, 20 January 1826   ; it was so listed by Hartert (1918a: 7), was cataloged as the type at AMNH, and has always been accepted as such. It is a paralectotype but remains in the type collection with an added label indicating that it is a paralectotype, not the lectotype. AMNH 674879 View Materials has been added to the type collection with an AMNH type label indicating that it is the lectotype of C. littoralis   . Paralectotype AMNH 674880 View Materials (2c), male, Rügen Island , 28 December 1826, is in the regular collection   .
