Geospiza bauri Ridgway

Geospiza bauri Ridgway, 1894: 362 (James Island). Now Geospiza fortis Gould, 1837. See Hellmayr,

1938: 131, Dickinson, 2003: 795.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 517124 View Materials , adult male, collected on Santiago (5 San Salvador or James) Island, 00.14S, 90.45W ( Paynter, 1993), Galapagos Islands, Ecuador, on 17 (not 7) August 1891. From the G. Baur Collection (no. 562) via the Rothschild Collection. GoogleMaps

COMMENTS: In the original description, Ridgway cited Baur’s unique field number of the holotype, but misread the date, which was correctly cited by Hartert (1919: 152). The specimen bears Baur’s field label, an unnumbered USNM type label (undoubtedly attached by Ridgway), and a Rothschild type label. On the reverse of the USNM label is reference to ‘‘fig. 24, pl. VI, Novitates Zoologicae VI (1899),’’ pl. VI in Rothschild and Hartert (1899) on Galapagos birds. Ridgway listed an immature male and an immature female in Baur’s collection in addition to the holotype; these two additional specimens were also cited by Ridgway (1896b: 519) and by Rothschild and Hartert (1899: 161). The paratypes are: AMNH 517122 and 517123, both labeled female, from Santiago Island and both were marked ‘‘ex spirits.’’
