A Monograph of the Hirundinidae or Family of Swallows (1885–1894), bound in two volumes, was Originally issued in 20 parts, (including some double or treble numbers) between Sept. 1885 and Oct. 1894.

The dates for each publication are unknown to me, but it seems unlikely that those pages, with "The late Clarence Buckley" (in vol. 2), was published in the earlier part of that period.

This far I don't think we've got any closer to his Death than it happened in the mid-1880's, not closer than; "Clarence is still listed in various street directories in London in 1885" (Jan's post #9), and "late" in -87. In about those years.

A bit overdue, but let's return to the debated/questioned Portrait of Mr. Buckley (as of post #19, 20–21) ... well, Martin, what can I say, but: Good job, well done, thanks!

So the other guy; "William Buckley (1814–1888)", that suddenly disturbed this thread, is/was a "William Buckler (1814-1888)"!?!

Clearly, after having studied those Photos, the features of the guy in the painted Portrait must be the ones of Clarence (the enormous sideburns excluded), no way the other guy could have looked anything similar. It's Clarence Buckley all right! ... or should one say; it's all (Vane-) Wright! [alt. yet another Portrait, this time a Photo (of an old descendant, for Jan)!]

I almost feel sorry for Simon Fenwick (the Author of A Guide to the Archives of the Royal Entomological Society, 2002); wrong guy, and wrong spelling/name. Awkward ...

If the horticulturist at Rollisson's Nursery, Tooting, was or is, equal of any William/Wilbraham Buckley/Buckler (1814-1875/1888?), if he (or they) ever went to Ecuador, or not (and even as such, in some way, could be included, in the exploration/Natural History of South America), is far, far beyond my scope (and I will not try to trace that/those guy/s).

I´ll simply stick to the Birds in my list (too many, too much left, running short of time).

I think it is not that easy just because it appears in Vol II. See here about publication history.


We have to find which plate Atticora Cinera was. And it is plate 96 which was published Dec 1890 (Part XV).

Martin, if you look at the Appendix to the Genus Atticora (here), for the Andean Swallow "Atticora cinerea (Gm.)", where "The late Clarence Buckley" was mentioned (in text), you'll see that it was published in 1892:

"Add :— ... pt. xv. (1892)", all in line with the Catalogue entry (your first link, post #28, p.579): Part "XV, ... Aug. 1892", thereby nothing new.

By then dear old Clarence had been late/dead for some years.

Björn

PS. "Dec 1890" is for Pt. XIII-XIV.

Sidetrack to the buckleyi birds ... (mostly on behalf of Martin/"Taphrospilus").

Regarding the collector of the Type of the Little Woodstar/"Die Hummelelfe" (Acestrura) Chaetocercus bombus, GOULD 1871, that you've been working/dealing with (in German Wikipedia) I think we can be pretty certain it (as well) was collected by Clarence Buckley ...

If we follow some of the other locations [other than (the Río/El) Citado], mentioned in Gould's Paper from 1871 (link in #15); Baños, (Río) Ulva, Canelos, Santa Ines ...it might be noteworthy that the lizard Leposoma buckleyi O'SHAUGNESSY 1881 (here) was collected by Clarence Buckley at Canelos, Ecuador (also see p.141, in the same Journal, here, where he'd also collected the Moth Castnia erycina WESTWOOD 1881, in Eastern Ecuador), as well as the butterfly Hyalenna buckleyi LAMAS & WILLMOTT 2006 (here, p.446); holotype collected by Clarence Buckley, at Tungurahua, ‘env[irons] d’Ambato’ (Ecuador), not far from Baños.

Or here; collected at “Pallatanga and Canelos”, Ecuador, or here. Note also that Pallatanga was one of the collecting sites where the same, "the late Clarence Buckley", collected some of Boulenger's fishes (as of post #25). And onwards ...

Thereby I assume Gould's "Mr. W. Buckley" (1871) simply was a mistake (a typo alt. Printer's error), and that it ought to have been "Mr. C. Buckley".

For what it is worth.

@ Björn: That's what I thought as well but you provided further evidence. Thank you.

Just want to mention that Buckley was a second time in Ecuador (if not already mentioned here but if # 1 says first journey indirectly yes).

We can see this in the title of Descriptions of six new species of Elateridae, collected by Mr. Clarence Buckley during his second expedition to Ecuador by Edward Wesley Janson. Of course it does not bring us any closer. Must be in 1878 as here is written:

But just as a guess maybe he died in Ecuador and is therefore that hard to trace his death?
