    Ficedula hyperythra clarae (Mayr, 1944) & Eulacestoma nigropectus clara Stresemann & Paludan, 1934

    Maybe it's possible to find more about Clara, the Wife of the German ornithologist Dr Georg Hermann Wilhelm Stein (1897–1976), in the following article: Stresemann, E. 1967. Georg H. W. Stein zum 70. Geburtstag. Mitteilungen aus dem Zoologischen Museum in Berlin 43 (2): pp. 185–187, photograph...

    Ficedula hyperythra clarae (Mayr, 1944) & Eulacestoma nigropectus clara Stresemann & Paludan, 1934

    Re. the side-track cochrani and the obscure dedicatee Cochran(e) [simultaneously dealt with (and better to keep) in the thread Leptocoma aspasia cochrani (Stresemann & Paludan, 1932 (i.e. here)] I somewhat doubt it, Martin, as we're clearly told (in the OD, of 1934) that Georg and Clara Stein...

    Colcloughia Mathews, 1917, Micropus colcloughi Mathews, 1915 & Drymodes superciliaris colcloughi Mathews, 1914

    Zosterops dehaani van Bemmel, 1939

    More info about G. A. L. de Haan is found in Flora Malesiana, vol. 1 (1950), incl. a Photo/Portrait (here), also (somewhat more) in ditto, vol. 5 (1958, here). To me, it looks like he was still collecting (Plants), in August 1957 (here), this time on Sumatra, Indonesia. And, note; in BBOC 123...

    Zosterops dehaani van Bemmel, 1939

    In the MS Notes after our dear, late friend Jan van der Brugge (who passed away earlier this year) I find: Even if now (after Justin's post #6) maybe somewhat superfluous, that is regarding the details of de Haan's life, though Jan's MS/notes does add a third Bird [a taxon neither listed in...

    Descriptions of all fossil Avialae

    Fred, neither I managed to find this paper, but (for what it's worth) I noticed that (some) other sources refer to this paper as found in either: Paleontologicheskii Zhurnal 12 (1978): 106–114 (as in your request above), alt. Раутиан (1978). "Уникално птиче перо от юрските езерни находища...

    Descriptions of all fossil Euornithes

    You're welcome Fred, I don't know what happened, but today it seems to work (even if a bit slow). Thus, no more "blancl" pages (for "everybodt") ... ;) /B

    Descriptions of all fossil Euornithes

    Fred, is the following piece possibly of some help? O. C. Marsh. 1873. Notice of a new Species of Ichthyornis, published in American Journal of Science and Arts (Series 3), vol. 5 (No. 1). Is so, as "Ichthyornis celer", on p.74 (here). However; enjoy! Björn

    Galerida cristata deprimozi Lavauden 1924

    Martin, it does look like "our guy" truly died in Tunisia, in 1922 ... In La Géographie : bulletin de la Société de géographie (1924) the following Report/note was given/made: Re. the unseen OD (just to make sure); here, alt. here or here. (Note: "US access only"). Maybe some of our US...

    The Key to Scientific Names

    Re. the following text/note, (at the end) in Guide to Key Entries (here, for the KEY TO SCIENTIFIC NAMES, at large): In my mind, a "Last updated" function/notice would be very useful (that is; on every, and each, entry – not only of/for the entire Key). To me (and to anyone else, I assume...

    Some tricky Edwards's and/or Edward's Birds … Part II

    :oops: Sorry Martin, I don't get it ... If you're too lazy, what's the point of post #15? As far as I can tell it adds absolutely nothing (just wasting time, and space). Or did I miss something? I thougt we already had checked all of those eponyms. Thus, no time to be lazy, pull your socks...

    Ficedula elisae (Weigold, 1922)

    Martin, maybe you can find "Frau Elise" (a k a 'Li' by Hugo Weigold himself) following the clues given in this Paper (von/by Inge Weigold, 1986 – i.e. the very first Part/Teil of the Paper you linked to above). On pp. 211-212 she's: "Frau Elise, Geb. Anders, Studienrat, Tochter des...

    Invitation to a Family Party with Boyd Alexander!

    Just curious, Paul (as I might mention her in my MS, among the rest of the Boyd Family) ... What was the exact relation of "Lady Eliza Alexander" (née Speirs), to Captain Boyd Alexander?

    Monsieur Lefèvre's invalid (Northern) Gannet

    Oouups, :oops: sorry guys, I happened to open up a brand new thread: Eliza(beth)'s Mexican Sheartail Hummingbird (here), while you were busy solving the whole thing. Well done!

    Eliza(beth)'s Mexican Sheartail Hummingbird

    I choose to open this thread just to keep the different dedicatees and the different Messieurs Lefèvre apart, i.e. Auguste Lefèvre versus (the Wife of) Amédée Lefèvre (even if earlier dealt with in the long and winding thread Monsieur Lefèvre's invalid (Northern) Gannet [here; from the...

    Sylvia curruca snigirewskii Stachanow, 1929

    As a pure sidetrack, in the thread Lyrurus tetrix fedjuschini Charlemagne, 1934, there's possibly additional (and somewhat contradictory!) info about Mr "Snigirewski" (here). Enjoy, and take it for what it's worth. /B

    Lyrurus tetrix fedjuschini Charlemagne, 1934

    To me it looks like Mr Olexas/Alex [R.I.P.] could have been of much help to us here on BirdForum. For some of his work (together with Jevgeni/Jevgenij Shergalin/Šergalin) on ResearchGate, see here. Note (for example) their Paper about: "Sergej Ivanovič Snigirevskij (1895-1955) – Naturschützer...

    Lyrurus tetrix fedjuschini Charlemagne, 1934

    Welcome back James, I also noted (and was surprised by) the many new names, though I´m not so sure about the "unpublished" part ... In this Paper (from 2013) one of Oleksas (many) works is listed as [my blue bold]: And, in this Piece (from 2015) by Oleksas himself [I assume, as written by...
