For completeness Laurent posted a link to the abstract:
Dickinson, Remsen. 2017. Case 3730 — Thamnophilus schistaceus d'Orbigny, 1838 (Aves: Thamnophilidae): proposed conservation of usage by suppression of Thamnophilus schistaceus d'Orbigny, 1835. Bull. Zool. Nomenclature 74(1):38-41.
[abstract]

(Thamnophilus schistaceus d'Orbigny 1835 being [this], thus. Used there inadvertently according to the footnote appearing on [p.171] of what is there the same volume.)

In a January 2018 update Mr. Dickinson says: "Rivoli received part of his collection perhaps via the Paris Museum or perhaps direct. The 1846 catalogue of Rivoli's sale may help us to establish that the ANSP has more types than it knows. It may also offer help with finding out if what Rivoli got came through the MNHN."
Catalogue de la Magnifique ...
https://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/...e/291/mode/1up . A quick looks shows no reference to the source of birds other than Parzduki on front page. A check of binomal names used by D'Orbigny in this would be hard.

Dickinson E.C. & Lebossé A., 2018. A study of d’Orbigny’s “Voyage dans l’Amérique Méridionale” IV. New avian names deriving from d’Orbigny’s expedition with evidence for their first introduction and necessary corrections to authorship, dates and citations. Zool. Bibliogr. 5 (4): 49-274.

ABSTRACT: The detailed six‐part review by Hellmayr (1921‐25) of the important ornithological findings of d’Orbigny in South America made use of the limited available information then available to him on the dates of publication of the 90 individual livraisons of d’Orbigny’s report on the birds. This was against a background of relative uncertainty as to the dates of publication of the two parts of the Synopsis Avium by d’Orbigny & Lafresnaye in the Magasin de Zoologie published by Guerin‐Meneville. The later findings of Sherborn & Griffin (1934), based on a set of wrappers of d’Orbigny’s book, allowed more certainty regarding the content of each wrapper, but the reported wrapper dates themselves (year dates only) cast doubt on issue sequence, and better information on the individual dates of the livraisons was not brought forward. Here that evidence is assembled and the interaction of these dates with the probable publications dates for the two parts of the Synopsis Avium is assessed. Based on this each genuinely new name proposed in either work is presented as a recommended valid original name, accompanied by citations to the same taxon elsewhere in either work. The sequence of taxa treated is essentially that followed by Hellmayr (based on that in the Synopsis Avium). Attention is drawn to the need for multiple corrections to dates, to authorship and to a few original spellings of names.
