TitleComment on the type-locality and nomenclature of the Regent Parrot Polytelis anthopeplus (Lear, 1831)
JournalZoologische Mededelingen
Volume78, 1-16
KeywordsPolytelis anthopeplus (Lear, 1831); type-locality; nomenclature; neotype
AbstractIn Schodde’s (1993) revision of Polytelis anthopeplus, two errors occur: he has on insufficient grounds shifted the designated type-locality of the species from New South Wales to Western Australia, and he has legalised this action by the invalid designation of a neotype from Western Australia. Similar nomenclatural mistakes occur in his later works.
