Pardalotus melanocephalus inexpectatus Mathews  

Pardalotus melanocephalus inexpectatus Mathews, 1912a: 390   (Parry’s Creek, North-West Australia).

Now Pardalotus melanocephalus uropygialis Gould, 1840   . See Schodde and Mason, 1999: 128–131, and Woinarski, 2008: 401.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 699076 View Materials , adult male, collected at Parry Creek , 15.36S, 128.17E ( Johnstone and Storr, 2004: 512), 5 miles west of Trig. Station HJ 9, East Kimberley, Western Australia, Australia, on 12 September 1908, by J.P. Rogers (no. 99). From the Mathews Collection (no. 2929) via the Rothschild Collection. GoogleMaps  

COMMENTS: Mathews cited his catalog number of the holotype in the original description and gave the range of the form as ‘‘ North-West Australia, Northern Territory.’’ A large number of specimens from the Kimberley in Western Australia and from Northern Territory were in the Mathews Collection when inexpectatus   was named and all become paratypes   ; some of them are also paratypes of P. m. tormenti (see below). Paratypes of inexpectatus   are: collected by J.T. Tunney (but received by Mathews from WAM), 200 miles from Derby, AMNH 699053 View Materials (Mathews no. 5293)   ; collected by J.P. Rogers, Point Torment, AMNH 699054– 699058 View Materials (8471–8473, 8475, 8476)   ; Manguel (5 Marngle) Creek, AMNH 699059 View Materials (9206), AMNH 699060 View Materials (9205)   ; collected by G.F. Hill, Pago Mission (5 mission station), Napier Broome Bay, AMNH 699061– 699071 View Materials (5696–5706), AMNH 699072 View Materials , an immature bird not cataloged by Mathews   ; collected by Rogers, Parry Creek, AMNH 699073–699075 View Materials , 699077–699085 View Materials (2917–2928). I did not find the following in Mathews’ catalog and do not consider them paratypes: AMNH 699045–699047 View Materials collected on the South Alligator River in April and June 1903 by Tunney (Mathews probably received these via WAM)   ; AMNH 699086 View Materials collected on the Forrest River on 1 September 1911 by C.P. Conigrave   ; or AMNH 699087 View Materials collected in pine forest, Northwest Australia by L.McK. Burns. Specimens collected by T.H. Bowyer-Bower at Derby in 1886 were not cataloged by Mathews until 1913   .
