Pachycephala pectoralis banksiana Mayr  

Pachycephala pectoralis banksiana Mayr, 1932b: 6 (Vanua Lava, Banks Islands)   .

Now Pachycephala caledonica intacta Sharpe, 1900   . See Galbraith, 1956: 201, 208, Mayr, 1967, 28–29, Dickinson, 2003: 477, and Boles, 2007: 421.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 216029 View Materials , adult female, collected on Vanua Lava , 13.50S, 167.28E ( USBGN, 1974), Banks Islands , Vanuatu, on 10 November 1926, by Virginia Correia on the Whitney South Sea Expedition (no. 23684). GoogleMaps  

COMMENTS: Mayr cited the AMNH number of the holotype in the original description and gave the range of the subspecies as Vanua Lava, Bligh, and Gaua islands in the Banks Islands, and Aurora and Pentecost islands in Vanuatu (5 New Hebrides). The following specimens are paratypes: Gaua, AMNH 214313–214318, Bligh, AMNH 215979– 215983, Vanua Lava, AMNH 215984, 215984 bis, 215985, 215986, Gaua, AMNH 215987–215989, AMNH 216017–216020, Pentecost, AMNH 215993–215997, 216009– 216016, Bligh, AMNH 216021–216028, Vanua Lava, AMNH 216030–216039, and Aurora, AMNH 218011–218019. I did not find AMNH 215993 in the collection.

Galbraith (1956: 201) considered banksiana a synonym of P. pectoralis chlorura   ;

Mayr (1967: 28) and Boles (2007: 421) recognized chlorura as a valid subspecies and considered banksiana a synonym of P. pectoralis intacta   ; Dickinson (2003: 477) combined subspecies from the southern Santa Cruz Islands to New Caledonia in the species P. caledonica   including intacta.
