Geospiza barringtoni Ridgway

Geospiza barringtoni Ridgway, 1894: 361 (Barrington Island).

Now Geospiza scandens intermedia Ridgway, 1894 . See Hellmayr, 1938: 134, Rothschild and Hartert, 1899: 164, and Dickinson, 2003: 796.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 517834 View Materials , adult male, collected on Santa Fe (5 Barrington) Island, 00.49S, 90.04W ( Paynter, 1993), Galapagos Islands, Ecuador, in July 1891. From the G. Baur Collection (no. 596) via the Rothschild Collection. GoogleMaps

COMMENTS: In the original description, Ridgway cited Baur’s unique number of the holotype, noting that Baur had collected two adult males and a specimen in streaked plumage. He also gave the collecting date of the holotype as 9 July 1891, but this day does not appear on the labels now present on the specimen. The holotype bears an unnumbered USNM type label with Baur’s number on it, placed there by Ridgway, a Rothschild type label, and a Rothschild Collection label. In addition to the holotype, there are now three Baur specimens in AMNH, ex spirits, all of which are in female or subadult male plumage and without any indication as to which Ridgway may have examined. These possible paratypes are: female, AMNH 517827, and males, AMNH 517837, 517838, all collected in July 1891 on Santa Fe Island.
