A list of the birds known from Roti and adjacent islets (Lesser Sunda Islands) Naturalis
Mees, G.F..
INTRODUCTION Father Verheijen (in press) has given a narrative of his visit to Roti, with a list of all birds recorded from material, personal observations, and hearsay. Although several of Verheijen's own field observations are entirely reliable, other species mentioned by him cannot be regarded as of anything but very doubtful occurrence. Therefore I have considered it useful to compile a list of those birds which are now known from collected specimens. Previous to Father Verheijen's studies, ornithological knowledge of Roti rested entirely on a visit to the island made by the anthropologist Dr. H. F. C. ten Kate in 1891 (22 August — 9 September). During his stay ten Kate did some collecting of miscellaneous zoological objects, which he forwarded to...

A list of the birds recorded from Bangka Island, Indonesia Naturalis
Mees, G.F..
An enumeration of bird specimens from Bangka present in museum-collections, has resulted in a faunal list of 172 species (176 forms). A discussion is given of the zoogeography of the island, the avifauna of which is mainly Sumatran in its affinities, but with a distinct Bornean influence. In contradistinction to a previously-published opinion (de Schauensee, 1958), there is no recognizable Javanese element in the avifauna.

A new fish of the family Scorpaenidae from New Guinea Naturalis
Mees, G.F..
The ichthyological collections brought together in various parts of New Guinea by staff members of the Rijksmuseum van Natuurlijke Historie in 1954 and 1955 (cf. Boeseman, 1963), contain a series of scorpion-fishes which are here described as a new species, representing a new genus. Cheroscorpaena genus novum Mainly characterized by the, in the Scorpaenidae unique, pectoral fins, which consist of nine rays connected by a membrane, followed ventrally by three entirely detached simple rays of about the same length as the main fins. The type and hitherto only species of this genus is: Cheroscorpaena tridactyla species nova (pl. 1) D XIII. 7 or 8, A III. 6 or 7, Ρ i. 8-i-i-i, V I. 5, C 8 to 10 (branched rays only), gill-rakers on outer branchial arch 7 or 8 +...

A new subspecies of Accipiter virgatus (Temminck) from Flores, Lesser Sunda Islands, Indonesia (Aves: Accipitridae) Naturalis
Mees, G.F..
A new subspecies of Accipiter virgatus (Temminck) is described from Flores (Lesser Sunda Islands). In addition some notes are given on the distribution of A. virgatus in south-eastern Burma and adjacent parts of Thailand, supplementary to an earlier paper (Mees, 1981).

A new subspecies of anthreptes malacensis (Scopoli) from the Soela Islands (Aves, Nectariniidae) Naturalis
Mees, G.F..
For over a century the sunbird Anthreptes malacensis has been known to occur on the Soela Islands where it reaches the eastern limit of its distribution, and when Shelley (1877) named Anthreptes celebensis, now known as Anthreptes malacensis celebensis, he included the Soela Islands in its range. In subsequent years apparently only Hartert (1898) has in the briefest possible way discussed specimens from the Soela Islands, stating that they were: "quite like Celebes specimens". At this the matter has rested with the result that in the latest list (van Bemmel, 1948) the Soela Islands are still included in the range of Anthreptes malacensis celebensis. When Stresemann (1932) restricted, in the Celebes, the range of A. m. celebensis to the southern peninsula,...

A note on the genus Liocranium Ogilby (Pisces, Scorpaenidae) Naturalis
Mees, G.F..
The genus Liocranium was established by Ogilby (1903) to contain a new species of scorpion-fish from the east coast of Queensland: L. praepositum. The genus remained monotypic until McCulloch (1921) placed Paracentropogan scorpio Ogilby in it, a species also described from the Queensland coast. Whitley (1933) did not agree, and transferred P. scorpio to a separate new genus Vadesuma. In the meantime Weber (1913) described as Paracentropogon pleurostigma and Paracentropogon cynocephalus two scorpion-fishes from the East Indies. These two species, however, were not well placed in Paracentropogon, and therefore De Beaufort (1949) created the genus Sibogapistus for them. Apart from McCulloch's (1921) remark that: "Paracentropogon cynocephalus Weber is perhaps...

A preliminary revision of the Belonidae Naturalis
Mees, G.F..
INTRODUCTION Difficulties with the identification of some West-Indian Belonidae and an investigation into the merits of the generic name Strongylura as against Tylosurus led to a revision of the Belonidae, the result of which is published here. As will be seen on the following pages, this revision is by no means final; many problems remain to be solved, much synonymy given here is doubtful, lack of material prevented me from investigating the possible presence of slight geographic variation in the widely distributed species; some apparently valid species are left out altogether (I listed their names on p. 5) because no material has been available, and other names remain doubtful as it has not been possible to examine the type specimens. There is also the...

A revision of the Australian Owls (Strigidae and Tytonidae) Naturalis
Mees, G.F..
INTRODUCTION When in December 1960 the R.A.O.U. Checklist Committee was reorganised and the various tasks in hand were divided over its members, the owls were assigned to the author. While it was first thought that only the Boobook Owl, the systematics of which have been notoriously confused, would need thorough revision and that as regards the other species existing lists, for example Peters (1940), could be followed, it became soon apparent that it was impossible to make a satisfactory list without revision of all species. In this paper the four Australian species of Strigidae are fully revised, over their whole ranges, and the same has been done for Tyto tenebricosa. Of the other three Australian Tytonidae, however, only the Australian races have been...

A systematic review of the Indo-Australian Zosteropidae (Part I) Naturalis
Mees, G.F..
INTRODUCTION Hardly any group of birds is of a greater interest to the zoogeographer and to the student of evolution and speciation than the family of the Zosteropidae. It was with the fact in mind that no conclusions as regards these fields of investigation could be drawn without the reliable base of a good classification that Stresemann (1931) 1) undertook a revision of the IndoAustralian members of the family. Stresemann's revision is a pioneer work that will long remain the base for any further work in the group. Since 1931, however, 45 further names have been given in the Indo-Australian group of the Zosteropidae, adding two valid species and about 25 valid races to the number already known. Though several partial revisions have greatly elucidated...

A systematic review of the Indo-Australian Zosteropidae (Part II) Naturalis
Mees, G.F..
INTRODUCTION In this, the second part of my revision of the Zosteropidae, 26 species are dealt with, all belonging to the genus Zosterops. The remaining 12 species of the genus and all the other genera, will be treated in the third part, the preparation of which is in progress. Unfortunately, it becomes more and more clear that no revision of the Pacific forms of the Zosteropidae can be really satisfactory without a visit to the American Museum of Natural History, where all the material of the Tring Museum and of the Whitney South Sea Expedition is assembled. Even though the co-operation of the authorities of that museum is above praise, I have usually been able to examine part of their series only, and no type specimens at all. More important is that the...

Additional records of birds from Formosa (Taiwan) Naturalis
Mees, G.F..
Since the publication of my paper on birds from Formosa (Mees, 1970), a few more collections have been received from the same source. A ban has now been placed on hunting and export of wild birds by the government of the Republic of China — an enlightened and overdue piece of legislation — with the result that the connection has come to an end and no more material is to be expected from Formosa. Although the later collections do not contain anything spectacular, a few records merit publication and for the reason stated this is a good moment for doing so. I take the opportunity to report on a few specimens from our old collection and from other sources. Appended are a bibliography of ornithological papers that have appeared since Hachisuka & Udagawa's...

Additions to the Avifauna of suriname Naturalis
Mees, G.F..
It is self-evident that as the avifauna of a country becomes better known, the number of additions to its avifauna one can expect to make in a given period, must decrease. On the other hand, it may be said that for the same reason the value of each addition increases. During a stay in Suriname of about a year in 1965/66 I found 17 species of birds which had not been previously recorded from the country (Mees, 1968). A second stay of a year's duration (November 1971-November 1972), yielded eleven additions to the avifauna of Suriname: nine of these are based on material collected, whereas two are based on field-observations only. With one of the species being represented by two subspecies, and one held over from my previous stay when lack of comparative...

An attempt at a natural classification of certain Zosteropidae of the Indo-australian Archipelago Naturalis
Mees, G.F..
The family of the Zosteropidae encloses, besides the very large and uniform genus Zosterops, a number of aberrant forms, especially in the East Indian Archipelago, that, though doubtless closely related to Zosterops, are too distinct to be united with this genus without objection. Several authors have engaged themselves with the problem of the classification of these forms, without arriving at a definite conclusion (cf. Hartert, 1897, Lophozosterops; Stresemann, 1940, p. 66, Pseudo zosterops). The inclusion of many of these forms in the genus Zosterops, as propagated by Hartert, and by Chasen (1935), is no final solution either, and later workers, such as Delacour & Mayr (1946), Delacour (1946), and Voous (1948), investigators who are certainly not in...

Bird records from the Moluccas Naturalis
Mees, G.F..
INTRODUCTION For the past thirty years I have, from time to time, come across bird material and literature records which have added localities and in a few instances have added new species, to Van Bemmel's (1948) list of birds of the Moluccan Islands and its supplement, published five years later (Van Bemmel & Voous, 1953). I have kept notes of these additions with the vague idea of perhaps, some time in the future, publishing a revised edition of the list of the avifauna of the Moluccas, zoogeographically one of the most interesting regions of the world. The sum total of my notes to date would hardly have justified publication, were it not for the fact that a new list of Moluccan birds was in the course of preparation by the late C. M. N. White, and...

Birds from the Lowlands of Southern new Guinea (Merauke and Koembe) Naturalis
Mees, G.F..
INTRODUCTION In the periods January 1959-June 1961 and February-September 1962, a total of about three years, the late Mr. A. Hoogerwerf was attached to the experimental rice farm Koembe near Koerik, not far from the mouth of the Koembe River, southern New Guinea, where he was in charge of investigations concerning crop-damage caused by birds and mammals. The results of his work were published in an important report (Hoogerwerf, 1962), in which it was suggested that certain alterations in the pattern of agricultural activities, like changes in the times of flooding and planting of the fields, could reduce damage by water birds without need to resort to the drastic measures so frequently taken against wildlife when man feels only in the slightest...

Birds of the Inyanga National Park, Rhodesia Naturalis
Mees, G.F..
In October and November 1964, after attending the Second Pan African Ornithological Congress at Pietermaritzburg, Natal, I spent some six weeks at Rhodes Inyanga Orchards in the Inyanga National Park, Rhodesia, at the kind invitation of Mr. and Mrs. C. B. Payne. During my stay I observed and collected birds in the Park and its immediate surroundings. In this paper the ornithological results of my stay are recorded. A collecting permit had been obtained for me in advance by Mrs. Payne, and by kind permission of the Chief Warden I was allowed to collect in the National Park. Authorities of the Umtali Museum placed a shotgun and dustshot at my disposal. Mrs. Payne was greatly interested in my activities; she also presented to me several bird-skins, including...

Comment on the type-locality and nomenclature of the Regent Parrot Polytelis anthopeplus (Lear, 1831) Naturalis
Mees, G.F..
In Schodde’s (1993) revision of Polytelis anthopeplus, two errors occur: he has on insufficient grounds shifted the designated type-locality of the species from New South Wales to Western Australia, and he has legalised this action by the invalid designation of a neotype from Western Australia. Similar nomenclatural mistakes occur in his later works.

Description of a new race of Zosterops novaeguineae Salvadori (Aves, Zosteropidae) Naturalis
Mees, G.F..
During a recent visit to the British Museum (Natural History), I found, stored away with some unsorted white-eyes, a skin, labelled as Zosterops sp., which evidently represents an undescribed race of Zosterops novaeguineae. It may be known as follows: Zosterops novaeguineae magnirostris, nov. subspec. Type: cf, January 1936, Awar, N. E. New Guinea, collected by Viscount Chaplin. Brit. Mus. reg. nr. 1936. 4. 20. 94. Measurements: Wings 54 and 54 1/2 mm respectively; culmen from skull 14 1/4 mm, exposed culmen 11 mm, culmen from anterior point of nostril 8 mm. The wings are freshly moulted and perfect, the tail is damaged. Diagnosis: Differs from all hitherto described races by its longer and heavier bill. Differs from the nominate race as well as from Z. n....
