Thanks Mark, but I know this work, which is:
Eudes-Deslongchamps E. 1879-80. Catalogue descriptif des oiseaux du musée de Caen appartenant à la famille des Trochilidés ou oiseaux-mouches. Bull. Soc. Linn. Normandie, sér. 3, 3: 149-321; 4: 8-225.;
The word 'type' is used therein exclusively in the sense of a specimen. Not a single time in the sense of a type species.
