Abstract

The following notes have been prepared with the object of placing on record, for future workers in taxonomy and nomenclature, the types and paratypes (or co-types) of birds from localities within Australia at present in the Australian Museum, Sydney. It is, so far as I am aware, a complete list. Particulars in the Museum registers and on labels attached to the specimens have been compared ,with published details accompanying the original descriptions of the specimens. Relevant facts, especially concerning type localities, have been included under the respective names.

The name proposed for a particular specimen, or a series of specimens, is given, together with a reference to the original description. This is followed by the registered number of the specimen and pertinent data. The present status of the names according to the Official Checklist of the Royal Australasian Ornithologists' Union, second edition, 1926, and the Systema Avium Australasianarum, Gregory M. Mathews, 1927–1930, is then given. Explanatory notes have been added where necessary. Many of the names based on the specimens listed have since been placed in synonymy, or used tri-nomially to designate subspecies.
