    Zosterops dehaani van Bemmel, 1939

    This G de Haan refers to Gerrit de Haan who indeed worked on cetaceans on for instance Texel. Several of his finds are detailed on www.walvisstrandingen.nl (beached whales and dolphins in the Netherlands). He is not our man. De Haan is, unfortunately, quite a common family name in the Netherlands.

    More info on William Wade Ellis can be found here: William Wade Ellis (1751-1785). Evidence is apparently lacking that W. Wade is related to W. Webb.

    Death certificate attached (upperleft). Born in Amsterdam, deceased in municipality of Opsterland. But I can't see a middle name so I am not certain he is our guy.

    Ambassador Macartney's Fireback (Pheasant)

    Short question: Does somebody know who's commemorated in the scientific name ... macartneyi And does it say anything additional of what he'd done, why he was given this mark of honour? It is presumably this person (note the last sentence)...

    carabayae, atacamensis and another rex

    Maybe it is playing games? T.rex is a famous dinosaur so now there is also a T.rex-wren? We will never know.
