Tachyphonus surinamus insignis Hellmayr  

Tachyphonus surinamus insignis Hellmayr, 1906c: 357   (Bemfica, Pará).

Now Tachyphonus surinamus insignis Hellmayr, 1906   . See Hellmayr, 1936: 334, Isler and Isler, 1999: 126–128, and Dickinson, 2003: 805.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 510899 View Materials , adult male, collected at Benfica (5 Bemfica), 01.18S, 48.18W ( Paynter and Traylor, 1991), Pará, Brazil, undated, by J.B. Steere. From the Rothschild Collection. GoogleMaps  

COMMENTS: Hellmayr designated the only adult male he examined from ‘‘Bemfica’’ as the type of insignis. While the description was based only on adult males, Hellmayr exam- ined other specimens from Pará and Borba, localities from which he had adult males. There are seven paratypes of insignis in AMNH from Pará, all of which have been labeled insignis by Hellmayr: AMNH 510900 View Materials , sex? [immature male], Benfica, undated   ; AMNH 510901 View Materials , female, Pará, 5 September [year not given], both collected by J.B. Steere   ; AMNH 510902 View Materials , female, AMNH 510903 View Materials , female, AMNH 510904 View Materials , male, all three from Igarapé-Assú, in January or April 1904, by A. Robert   ; AMNH 510905 View Materials , male, AMNH 510906 View Materials , female, Prata near Pará, in November and December 1905, by W. Hoffmanns. All of the paratypes came to AMNH with the Rothschild Collection. The three adult males, and perhaps other specimens, from Borba were collected by Natterer and are probably in NMW   .

Paynter and Traylor (1991: 72), under the entry for Benfica, noted that Steere collected there in July and August, with year not given. Sclater and Salvin (1878: 135) traced Steere’s movements in South America and said he left Belem (5 Pará) in June 1871 and moved upriver to Santarem. It must have been during this period that he visited Benfica.
