In context with Grote I came accross Loxia curvirostra mariae Dementiev , 1932

OD of Loxia curvirostra mariae here.

The Eponym Dictionary of Birds gives me no hint for whom the bird is named. Maybe anything in the future BOW key avaible? Or any additional idea?

Maybe the wife of Georgi Petrovich Dementiev (1898-1969) (Георгий Петрович Дементьев) here? Maybe a Мария e.g. Мария Петровна Дементьева (Maria Petrovna Dementieva)?
