Falco torquatus Cuvier 

Falco torquatus  Cuvier, 1821, in Temminck, Planches Coloriees liv. 8: 43, 93 (Nouvelle-Hollande).

Accipiter fasciatus  (Vigors & Horsfield, 1827). See Voisin and Voisin 2001: 184-185 - Now.

Type materials.

The two SYNTYPES are the same as Nisus australis  Lesson.

Comments.

Cuvier mentioned that specimens were present in both the MNHN and RMNH. Contra Voisin and Voisin (2001: 184-185) they represent Brown Goshawks Accipiter fasciatus  (Vigors and Horsfield 1827) and not Collared Sparrowhawk Accipiter cirrocephalus  (Vieillot 1817), and therfore are misidentifications and needed to be corrected (article 67.13 (ICZN 1999)). Stresemann (1953) refers to Falco torquatus  Rafinesque 1814 from Sicily, and refers to Temminck (= Cuvier) 1821, and replaces the junior homonym with Accipiter fasciatus hellmayri  Stresemann 1953, Jour. f. Orn. LXX: 129 (Nouvelle-Hollande). The type locality is erroneous (Nouvelle-Hollande), and therefore corrected and restricted to: West-Timor, near Kupang Bay (article 76a.2.A (ICZN 1999)). Cuvier named this species Falco torquatus  or ‘coloured’ ( Jobling 2017). See Nisus australis  .
