Ptilotis salvadorii Hartert  

Ptilotis salvadorii Hartert   (in Rothschild and Hartert), 1896c: 531 (Mount Victoria, Owen Stanley Mountains).

Now Lichenostomus subfrenatus salvadorii (Hartert, 1896)   . See Coates, 1990: 280, and Higgins et al., 2008: 595–596.

LECTOTYPE: AMNH 696057 View Materials , sex?, Mount Victoria , 08.52S, 147.32E (Times Atlas), Owen Stanley Mountains, 5000–7000 ft, Oro Province, Papua New Guinea, April– June 1896, by A.S. Anthony. From the Rothschild Collection. GoogleMaps  

COMMENTS: Hartert did not designate a type in the original description, but noted that he had only two specimens. Both of these specimens are marked as having been collected by a native collector, but AMNH 696057 has Anthony’s name added to the Rothschild label, which is marked ‘‘Type’’ by Hartert and bears a Rothschild type label. Hartert (1919a: 176) listed as the type of P. salvadorii   the specimen collected by Anthony, thus designating it the lectotype. Rothschild and Hartert (1903b: 443) also listed the type of P. salvadorii   , but this did not serve to designate a lectotype, as both of the specimens bear the date April–June 1896, and Anthony’s name was not mentioned. The second specimen, AMNH 696056, bearing exactly the same data but without Anthony’s name, is marked ‘‘paratype’’ by Hartert, and is the paralectotype. A.S. Anthony was a mixed-race collector from whom Rothschild obtained specimens from time to time. Judging by the ‘‘make’’ of the skin, both specimens were collected by him. His specimens from the Mount Victoria area were purchased in London and no further information is available concerning them ( Rothschild and Hartert, 1896a: 8).
