Nisus  manilensis Meyen, 1834a: 69, pl. 9.

Now: Accipiter soloensis ( Horsfield, 1821)  . See Hartert (1914: 1163).

Holotype: ZMB 860View Materials ( Lichtenstein 1832, Nr. 49 sub “ Falco nisus  ”, but nisus  was later crossed out), skin, juv., collected by Meyen in “ October ” [= 30 Sep 1831; Meyen 1835: 254] at “ Manila?” [= Jalajala, Philippines; see below]. 

Type locality. Meyen (1834a: 70) stated that he collected the bird at “ Manila ” (which name he used both for the city and the island of Luzon ). In his travel report, Meyen (1835: 254) specified that he collected the bird at “ Hali-Hali ” [= Jalajala, Luzon, Philippines; 14.35°N, 121.32°E]GoogleMaps  . We thus ascertain the type locality as Jalajala.

Remarks. Both Lichtenstein (1832) and Meyen (1834a: 70) stated that the specimen was collected in October, but Meyen (1835: 254) offered the more accurate date.
