Ptilotis flavescens wyndhami Mathews  

Ptilotis flavescens wyndhami Mathews, 1912a: 411   (North-West Australia (Wyndham)).

Now Lichenostomus flavescens flavescens (Gould, 1840)   . See Salomonsen, 1967: 378, Schodde and Mason, 1999: 253–254, Christidis and Boles, 2008: 185–191, and Higgins et al., 2008: 608.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 695484 View Materials , adult male, collected at Parry Creek , 15.36S, 128.17E ( Johnstone and Storr, 2004: 512), 5 miles west of Trig. station HJ9, East Kimberley, Western Australia, Australia, on 9 October 1908, by J.P. Rogers (no. 161). From the Mathews Collection (no. 3280) via the Rothschild Collection. GoogleMaps  

COMMENTS: Mathews cited his catalog number of the holotype in the original description and gave the range of wyndhami as ‘‘North-West Australia, Northern Territory.’’ I interpret this to mean East Kimberley, as Mathews seemed to consider West Kimberley and the area around Derby as the range of the nominate form. Paratypes are: Parry Creek, collected by J.P. Rogers, AMNH 695483 (Mathews no. 3281), male, 30 September 1908; AMNH 695485 (3282), male, 27 October 1908; AMNH 695486 (3279), female, 6 November 1908; AMNH 695487 (3278), female, 28 October 1908; Georges Creek, Northern Territory, collected by J.T. Tunney, AMNH 695516 (5330), male, 8 July 1902, obtained from WAM Museum. This specimen was part of the Tunney collection reported on by Hartert (1905a: 234) and apparently had been among the WAM share of the collection. AMNH 695498, collected by K. Dahl on the Katherine River in 1895, was not received by Mathews from R. Collett, ZMO, until after the publication of wyndhami on 31 January 1912 (see Mathews, 1912b: 25), and specimens collected by L.M. Burns and C.P. Conigrave on the Barton and Forrest rivers in 1911 were not cataloged by Mathews until February and August 1912.
