Myzantha flavigula alligator Mathews  

Myzantha flavigula alligator Mathews, 1912a: 418   (Alligator River, Northern Territory).

Now Manorina flavigula lutea (Gould, 1840)   . See Salomonsen, 1967: 442, Schodde and Mason, 1999: 269–273, Christidis and Boles, 2008: 185– 191, and Higgins et al., 2008: 617–618.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 694462 View Materials , adult male, collected on the South Alligator River , 12.15S, 132.24E ( USBGN, 1957), Northern Territory, on 20 May 1903, by J.T. Tunney (no. 1322). From the Mathews Collection (no. 5355) via the Rothschild Collection. GoogleMaps  

COMMENTS: Mathews cited his catalog number of the holotype in the original description and gave the range of alligator as ‘‘ Northern Territory.’’ Apparently, Mathews had the single specimen; it bears Tunney’s original label and Mathews and Rothschild type labels. Tunney’s collection was reported on by Hartert (1905a) and it was divided between Rothschild and WAM, with a subset sent to BMNH ( Hartert, 1905a: 194). Mathews received his specimen from WAM, and the number 7459 on Tunney’s label is apparently a WAM number.
