    Ornismya atala Lesson 1833

    Thank you about the dates. But above quote is still not clear to me. See also no.50:pt.5 (1911) - Bulletin of the United States National Museum - Biodiversity Heritage Library . Is it really a synonym?
  7. Taphrospilus

    Ornismya atala Lesson 1833

    And was it published at the same date as the corresponding plate?

    I think it is again the thing registered at 21st March but born (hier) yesterday (=20th).

    Miss Harris's Black-headed Mountain-Finch

    Any idea where Systematik und Zoogeographie der Vögel der Tibet Expedition E. Schäfer 1938/39 is published which is mentioned here?

    Miss Harris's Black-headed Mountain-Finch

    Has anyone checked Ornithologische Ergebnisse zweier Forschungsreisen nach Tibet published as Sonderheft in Journal für Ornithologie what Ernst Schäfer wrote there? Maybe he mentioned there an Audrey?

    Luscinia megarhynchos baehrmanni Eck, 1975

    In this publication no hint if Udo Bährmann. I think requires the second publication mentioned in Zoonomen.

    Miss Harris's Black-headed Mountain-Finch

    Might be worth to read the book "Nazis in Tibet: Das Rätsel um die SMS-Expedition Ernst Schäfer" . As I understood a Lord Linlithgow and Sir Barry Domvile played important rules to get the allowance at least till Sikkim.
