Not a surprise that I couldn't find it. Thank you. Is it possible to find this publication here Tchitrea suahelica smithi Roberts 1936 as well?

I can't find that one, sorry.
The older volumes of the journal are mostly freely accessible at https://journals.co.za/content/journ...archive-issues , but a couple of issues are lacking, and these include this one. It's post-1923, thus not very likely to be made accessible by a third party.

For what it's worth, this should be in:
Roberts A. 1936. Some unpublished field notes made by Dr (Sir) Andrew Smith. Ann. Transvaal Mus., 18: 271–323.

Catalogue raisonne, d'une Collection supérieurement belle d'Oiseaux (1764). Several species described by Pallas, e.g. Spotted Flycatcher. Available anywhere, please?

National Library of Australia Catalogue (https://catalogue.nla.gov.au/Record/3596981) suggests it's this: https://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/...ge/77/mode/1up

Excellent, thanks!

Edit - an interesting follow-up point: Pied Flycatcher next above Spotted, both described in this work for the first time. So how did Linnaeus manage to miss these species, which are both abundant in the area where he lived??

Linnaeus didn't miss neither the (European) Pied Flycatcher Ficedula hypoleuca (Pallas 1764), nor the Spotted Flycatcher Muscicapa striata (Pallas 1764).

As far as I know he knew them both (even if they, in his Era, weren't nearly as common as they are today in Sweden, far less so), they are/were both mentioned, several times, in various books, during the 1730's and -40's, ... he simply didn't describe them good enough, in or post-1758 (the very starting point/year of modern taxonomy).

More on Vroeg's Catalogue 1764:
Quote:
Birds in the sales catalogue of Adriaan Vroeg (1764) described by Pallas and
Vosmae
2000. http://www.rhinoresourcecenter.com/p...1175856060.pdf .
Charles Richmond 1905 : https://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/...e/484/mode/1up .
C. Davies Sherborn 1905: https://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/...e/474/mode/1up .
"It was easy for me to verify our data set of names, and in fact it turned out that Sherborn must have relied on a third source,” (???)

“It was easy for me to verify our data set of names, and in fact it turned out that Sherborn must have relied on a third source,” explains Welter-Schultes. “There were so many inaccuracies in the spellings of the names that we must assume that Sherborn, who in his work (published in 1902) had a very low average error rate, did very probably not extract those names from an original copy of the 1764 work.”
... and onwards (from here)

If of any help?

Where can I find Upucerthia harterti in Jahr.Allgem.Deutsch.Orn.Ges. p.10? I seem to be to stupid to find it online. Assume must be something like Jahresversammlung der Deutschen Ornithologischen Gesellschaft.

• "Upucerthia harterti" BERLEPSCH 1892 (here), though in Journal für Ornithologie; Bericht über die XVII Jahresversammlung (Allgem. Deutsche Ornitholog. Gesellschaft zu Berlin), starting on p.443, with "Upucerthia harterti" on p.452 (i.e. on p.10 of the Bericht ... itself.)

Hopefully of some help?

I could find only Anno 1 here 1897.

Sorry Martin, I can't find it (at least not in full access*), and I know we've been searching for the same Journal earlier (with little or no luck, here, back in January 2015) ... however I assume you're looking for the OD of the Blackcap ssp. Sylvia atricapilla pauluccii ARRIGONI (degli Oddi) 1902, as "Sylvia atricapilla Pauluccii" a k a Paulucci's Blackcap

Without knowing the exact reason why you want to find it I cannot help much, but if the reason is the eponym, see the Paper; Eponyms honouring Marianna Paulucci (1835-1919), by Manganelli, Lori & Cianfanelli (2009), here. If so, you'll end up with the the Italian naturalist Marchesa Marianna Panciatichi Ximenes d’Aragona Paulucci (1835–1919), commemorated in loads of various taxa (mostly slugs/snails, in Gastropoda).

Today's HBW Alive Key have the same Lady, here (even if James prefer to write her many names, and titles, in a slightly different order). Which version (of her full name) is the most preferable boils down to tradition, language, culture, taste etc., etc. Simply adapt it to your own situation and context.

Either way; good luck finding it!

Björn

*The Avicula : giornale ornitologico italiano, v.5-8 (1901-1904) is to bee seen here, (but only with; Limited access for us Europeans, i.e. US access only).

Maybe Mark can read it (or anyone else of our US companions)?

I can read it. Dedico questa sottospecie alla mia carrisima Nonna Marchesa M. Paulucci Panciatichi Ximenes d'Aragon la ben nota Malacolog italiana. Google translate:
I dedicate this subspecies to my dearest Grandma Marchesa M. Paulucci Panciatichi Ximenes d'Aragon

Reliable as ever Mark!

Can you please check again; does the OD truly say: " ... d'Aragon ...", and not d'Aragona ... ?

No I just asked myself about the reason why Arrigoni honered Ernst Hartert in Dendrocopos major harterti . The dedication is obvious but just was curious.
