Thraupis bonariensis composita J.T. Zimmer

Thraupis bonariensis composita J.T. Zimmer, 1944: 20 ( Vinto , Province of Cochabamba, Bolivia; altitude 8000 feet).

Now Thraupis bonariensis composita J.T. Zimmer, 1944 . See Storer, 1970: 326, Isler and Isler, 1999: 195–197, and Dickinson, 2003: 807.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 138354 View Materials , adult male, collected at Vinto , 8000 ft, 17.26S, 66.19W ( Paynter, 1992), Cochabamba, Bolivia, on 6 July 1915, by Leo E. Miller (no. 12937) and Howarth Boyle. GoogleMaps

COMMENTS: Zimmer gave the AMNH number of the holotype in the original description and listed the specimens he examined. Paratypes are: Vinto, AMNH 138352 View Materials , 138353 View Materials , 138355 View Materials , 138356 View Materials , three males, one immature male ; Parotani , AMNH 138349–138351 View Materials , 148913 View Materials , two males, two females ; Tujma , AMNH 139809 View Materials , male ; Tarata , AMNH 139810 View Materials , 139811 View Materials , male, female ; Arque , AMNH 148912 View Materials ; Valle Grande , AMNH 509288 View Materials , male ; Olgin , AMNH 509289 View Materials , male ; Pulque , AMNH 139807 View Materials , 139808 View Materials , males ; Chilon , AMNH

139796–139803, seven males, one female; Rio Pilcomayo , AMNH 139804 View Materials , male ; Rio Grande, AMNH 139812 View Materials , male ; Rio Cachimayo, AMNH 139805 View Materials , 139806 View Materials , male, female. In his list of examined specimens, Zimmer listed two males from Rio Pilcomayo , but there is only one cataloged. The specimen from Rio Grande is from within the given range of composita and in the same series of specimens collected by Miller and Boyle ; it is also labeled composita by Zimmer. I think the discrepancy in number of specimens examined from Rio Pilcomayo resulted from a misreading of the locality on the Rio Grande specimen and I have considered it a paratype. Two of the paratypes had been given to the BIM and renumbered when their bird collection was donated to AMNH in 1935: AMNH 139800 View Materials ( BIM no. 12942, later AMNH no. 441236) ; AMNH 139804 View Materials (12941, 441232) .
