Colluricincla harmonica victoriae Mathews  

Colluricincla harmonica victoriae Mathews, 1912a: 369   (Victoria).

Now Colluricincla harmonica harmonica (Latham, 1801)   . See Schodde and Mason, 1999: 458–462, and Boles, 2007: 432–433.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 656615 View Materials , female, collected at Olinda , 37.51S, 145.22E ( USBGN, 1957), Victoria, Australia, on 15 April 1911, by Thomas H. Tregellas. From the Mathews Collection (no. 9046) via the Rothschild Collection. GoogleMaps  

COMMENTS: Mathews cited his catalog number of the holotype in the original description. In addition to Tregellas’ original label, the holotype bears Mathews and Rothschild type labels; the number ‘‘636’’ that appears on Tregellas’ label refers to the number of this species in Mathews (1908).

Mathews gave the range of victoriae as ‘‘ Victoria, South Australia.’’ Because Mathews, at that time and later, considered South Australian birds to be Colluricincla rufiventris Gould, I   have not considered any of Mathews’ South Australian specimens to be part of the type series of C. harmonica victoriae   . Paratypes are thus restricted to the following specimens: Bayswater, AMNH 656595 (Mathews no. 8068), AMNH 656596 (8069); Blackburn, AMNH 656597 (4235), AMNH 656598 (4236), AMNH 656599 (5059); Olinda, AMNH 656611 (9045), AMNH 656612 (8531), AMNH 656618 (4961), AMNH 656619 (8532), AMNH 656620 (8067); Ringwood, AMNH 656621 (8533), AMNH 656622 (5935). Two specimens collected by C.F. Cole long before publication of victoriae on 31 January 1912 are not considered paratypes, as Whittell (1954: 158) noted that Cole did not send his collection to Mathews until 1914. AMNH 656625 was collected early enough for inclusion but was not cataloged until 7 March 1912 (Mathews no. 11153), over a month after the publication of victoriae; AMNH 656608, 656609, 656617 were also collected early enough, but I have not considered them paratypes as I did not find them listed in Mathews’ catalog. All other Victorian specimens of this species in AMNH were either collected after the publication date of victoriae or were never in the Mathews Collection.
