TitleOn a new subspecies of the genus Pitohui Lesson, with an enumeration of the species of this genus in the collection of the Leyden Museum
JournalNotes from the Leyden Museum
AbstractIt has already been observed by Salvadori ¹), that a specimen of Pitohui cerviniventris (Gray) from Waigeoe was brighter in colour on the undersurface than another from Batanta. The two specimens from the last-named locality in our collection, a male and a female, are also different from eleven specimens from Waigeoe and Ghemien (Garamen), an island south of the first.
Though Rothschild and Hartert ²) state, that in the British Museum the Batanta-specimeus agree with those from Waigeoe (if correctly labelled), I find the differences in our specimens so striking, that I propose to separate the specimens from Batanta under the name of Pitohui cerviniventris pallidus, subsp. nov.
