Cyanocompsa cyanea caucae Chapman  

Cyanocompsa cyanea caucae Chapman, 1912: 163   (La Manuelita near Palmira, alt. 3500 ft., Cauca Valley, Colombia).

Now Cyanocompsa brissoni caucae Chapman, 1912   . See Hellmayr, 1938: 104–105, Paynter, 1970d: 239, and Dickinson, 2003: 825.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 109175 View Materials , adult male, collected at La Manuelita near Palmira, alt. 3500 ft, 03.35N, 76.17W ( Paynter, 1997), Valle del Cauca, Colombia, on 14 April 1911 by Frank M. Chapman and William B. Richardson. GoogleMaps  

COMMENTS: Chapman gave the AMNH number of the holotype in the original description, noting that he had seven specimens, including the type. The six paratypes are: AMNH 107345–107349 View Materials , two males, one immature male, and two females, collected at Caldas, 2000 ft, between 18 and 29 November 1910   ; and AMNH 109176 View Materials , female, collected at Palmira , 11 April 1911   .

Paynter (1970d: 239) included both the genera Guiraca   and Cyanocompsa   in the genus Passerina   . To avoid the resulting nomenclatural confusion that would have resulted from this merger, the ICZN (1979: 24–26) suppressed the specific name cyanea   as published in the binomen Loxia cyanea Linnaeus, 1758   [5 Cyanocompsa cyanea   ] for the purposes of both the Law of Priority and the Law of Homonymy in order to conserve the widely used name Passerina cyanea (Linnaeus, 1766)   for the North American Indigo Bunting. The next available name for the South American Indigo Bunting, published as Fringilla brissonii Lichtenstein, 1823   , was at that time placed on the Official List of Specific Names in Zoology with Name Number 2662, type locality Bahia, Brazil, and is now the correct specific name to use.
