Acanthorhynchus tenuirostris victoriae Mathews  

Acanthorhynchus tenuirostris victoriae Mathews, 1912a: 398   (Victoria).

Now Acanthorhynchus tenuirostris tenuirostris (Latham, 1801)   . See Salomonsen, 1967: 438, Schodde and Mason, 1999: 325–327, Christidis

and Boles, 2008: 185–191, and Higgins et al., 2008: 582–583.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 693462 View Materials , adult male, collected at Olinda , 37.51S, 145.22E ( USBGN, 1957), Victoria, Australia, on 13 May 1911, by Thomas Tregellas. From the Mathews Collection (no. 9058) via the Rothschild Collection. GoogleMaps  

COMMENTS: Mathews gave his catalog number of the holotype in the original description and the range of victoriae as ‘‘ Victoria.’’ The holotype bears, in addition to Tregellas’ original label and Mathews and Rothchild type labels, a ‘‘ Figured’ ’ label, indicating that it was illustrated in Mathews (1924: pl. 518, top fig., opp. p. 337, text p. 338), where it is confirmed as the type of victoriae. Only the following two specimens from Victoria were found in Mathews’ catalog and are paratypes: AMNH 693457 View Materials (Mathews no. 3045), male juvenile, The Basin, Dandenongs, 1 January 1909   ; AMNH 693461 View Materials (8568), male, Olinda, 10 February 1911. The following specimens were collected prior to the publication of victoriae on 31 January 1912, but I did not find them in Mathews’ catalog   ; they are possible paratypes: AMNH 693443 View Materials , male, Hawthorn, 8 September 1907   ; AMNH 693453 View Materials , male, Melton, 8 June 1908   ; AMNH 693460 View Materials , male, Olinda, 7 October 1907   ; AMNH 693464 View Materials , male, Olinda, 8 July 1911   ; AMNH 693467 View Materials , male, Beaconsfield, 16 October 1909   ; AMNH 693469 View Materials , sex?, Frankston, 9 March 1909   ; AMNH 693471 View Materials , female, Gippsland, 1903   ; AMNH 693472 View Materials , male, Gippsland , 1903. AMNH 693466 View Materials , male, Beaconsfield, 26 March 1910, was collected early enough but was not cataloged until 20 February 1912. Other specimens in AMNH are undated or were collected after victoriae was published on 31 January 1912   .
