Pachycephala olivacea tregellasi Mathews  

Pachycephala olivacea tregellasi Mathews, 1912a   (January): 315 (Victoria).

Now Pachycephala olivacea olivacea Vigors and Horsfield, 1827   . See Schodde and Mason, 1999: 433–435, Boles, 2007: 412, Jønsson et al., 2008, and Dumbacher et al., 2008.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 659405 View Materials , female, collected at Olinda , 37.51S, 145.22E ( USBGN, 1957), Victoria, Australia, on 11 May 1907, by Thomas H. Tregellas. From the Mathews Collection (no. 4908) via the Rothschild Collection. GoogleMaps  

COMMENTS: Mathews cited his catalog number of the holotype in the original description. He cataloged three Tregellas specimens at the same time, but I consider only one of the other two specimens a paratype: AMNH 659404 (Mathews no. 4909), male, collected 9 May 1908 at Olinda. A second paratype is AMNH 659427 (Mathews no. 2726), an unsexed specimen collected in Gippsland, Victoria, on 17 July 1886, and received from Ashby.

AMNH 659424 View Materials , male juvenile, collected 28 December 1908 at Sassafras by Tregellas may also be a paratype   ; its data do not match the data in Mathews’ catalog for the third specimen and I did not find it elsewhere in his catalog, but Mathews frequently did not catalog juvenile specimens. The third specimen, opposite catalog no. 4910, is listed as a male collected on 20 December 1908 and the locality ‘‘ Olinda’ ’ is dittoed from the other two specimens. Probably, a specimen with data matching this entry was once in Mathews’ collection and was exchanged to persons unknown   ; if found, it is a paratype of tregellasi. AMNH 659406 View Materials and 659407 (no. 11689, only one entry), collected on 6 October 1910 on Mt. Dandenong were collected before he described tregellasi but not cataloged by Mathews until November 1912, long after the description was published. The following four specimens were not found entered in Mathews’ catalog and are not considered paratypes: AMNH 659408 View Materials , an undated specimen collected in the Dandenong Range by Chandler   ; AMNH 659423 View Materials , male, collected 24 November 1911 at Lorne by J. Ross   ; AMNH 659425 View Materials and AMNH 659426 View Materials , collected at Lang Lang, but undated   .
