TitleA supplementary note on Glareola megapoda
JournalNotes from the Leyden Museum
AbstractJust after the preceding Note had left the press, I got a letter from Dr. H. Guillemard, at Cambridge, about the type of Glareola megapoda in the British Museum. During his visit to the Leyden Museum some weeks ago, I called his attention to my Liberian Pratincoles, the specific rank of which was still doubtful in a certain degree. Dr. Guillemard now was kind enough to examine the type in the British Museum and to send me the following informations: »The occipital hand is of the same size and rusty red colour as in your birds. You gave me the following as the measurements of your Glareola: Wing 13,7—14,4 cm.; tarsus 1,8; bill 1,0.
Those of the British Museum bird are: Wing 14,9 cm.; tarsus 2,0; bill 1,0.”
