Pachycephala rufiventris colletti Mathews  

Pachycephala rufiventris colletti Mathews, 1912b: 41   (Parry’s Creek, North-west Australia).

Now Pachycephala rufiventris falcata Gould, 1843   . See Schodde and Mason, 1999: 447–449, and Boles, 2007: 428.

LECTOTYPE: AMNH 659143 View Materials , adult male, collected 5 miles west of Trig Station HJ 9, Parry Creek, 10 ft, 15.36S, 128.17E ( Johnstone and Storr, 2004: 512), East Kimberley, Western Australia, Australia, on 9 September 1908, by John P. Rogers (no. 82). From the Mathews Collection (no. 2679) via the Rothschild Collection. GoogleMaps  

COMMENTS: In the original description, Mathews did not designate a type or say how many specimens he examined, nor did he add information later ( Mathews, 1920: 235–244). AMNH 659143 bears a Mathews type label with ‘‘ Pachycephala rufiventris colletti   ’’ written on it by Mathews. In order to confirm Mathews’ intent, I hereby designate AMNH 659143 the lectotype of P. rufiventris colletti   . In addition, the specimen bears a Mathews Collection label and a J.P. Rogers field label.

Mathews cataloged 28 specimens (under the name P. falcata   ) from Parry Creek and all 28 came to AMNH with the Rothschild Collection. Paralectotypes are: AMNH 659135–659142 and 659144–659162 (Mathews numbers 2666–2678, 2680–2693).
