Corvus marianae tasmanicus Mathews 

Corvus marianae tasmanicus Mathews, 1912a: 443  (Tasmania).

Now Corvus tasmanicus tasmanicus Mathews, 1912  . See Mathews, 1926: 390–402; Hartert, 1929a: 54; Mathews, 1930: 895; Blake and Vaurie, 1962: 277; Rowley, 1970; Schodde and Mason, 1999: 609–610; and dos Anjos, 2009: 634–635.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 674707View Materials, unsexed [male], collected in Tasmania, Australia, in 1876, from the collection of Walter Chamberlain. From the Mathews Collection (no. 3719) via the Rothschild Collection. 

COMMENTS: In the original description, Mathews gave his catalog number of the holotype and its bill measurement of 67 mm. Besides the Chamberlain label and Mathews and Rothschild type labels, it also bears a ‘‘Figured’’ label, indicating that it was the model for Mathews (1926, pl. 590, opp. p. 390; text p. 391) where it is confirmed as the type of tasmanicus  . On page 391, Mathews gave the following measurements: wing 362 mm, bill 61 mm, tarsus 72. Mathews’ measurements written on the reverse of Chamberlain’s label: wing 358, bill 67, tarsus 70. I measure wing 360, bill 66, tarsus 70.

Rowley (1970: 32, 53–55) elevated tasmanicus  to species level, and Schodde and Mason (1999: 609–610) and dos Anjos (2009: 634–635) agreed.
