not a drawing: Melanopitta novae guineae [text only]
Unpublished; preparatory to "Pittidae.", Preliminary form of text page (only) for the cited species in the Pittidae volume (plate not published; number 13 established from wrapper to fasc. 2). Only the binomial is changed (from Pitta novae guineae to Melanpitta novae guineae.). The text subsequently included in Pittidae fasc. 2 was very heavily rewritten by R.B. Sharpe. It is to be assumeded that the plate Pitta novae guineae, Birds of New Guinea IV::36, would have been used in Pittidae, with the name changed.
