Meliphaga versicolor clelandi Mathews

Meliphaga versicolor clelandi Mathews, 1915a: 132 (Cairn Cross Island, Barrier Reef).

Now Lichenostomus versicolor versicolor (Gould, 1843) . See Salomonsen, 1967: 376, Schodde and Mason, 1999: 236, Christidis and Boles, 2008: 185–191, and Higgins et al., 2008: 601.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 694715 View Materials , unsexed, collected on Cairncross Island , Cairncross Islets , 11.15S, 142.56E ( USBGN, 1957), Queensland, Australia, in April 1902. From the Mathews Collection (no. 3208) via the Rothschild Collection. GoogleMaps

COMMENTS: Mathews had the single specimen from the Cairncross Islets, and he

gave no further range in the original description. There is no original label on the type; the Mathews Collection label bears his catalog number, although this was not mentioned in the original description, but there is no information either on the label or in the catalog concerning the collector. The number 774 that appears on this label refers to the number of the species in Mathews (1908). The holotype also bears a Rothschild type label, filled in by hand unknown.
