In the course of the preparation of the book on “De Vogels van de Nederlandse Antillen” (“Birds of ths Netherlands Antilles”), which will be published very soon (obtainable through Martinus Nijhoff, The Hague, and Boekhandel Salas, Curaçao), it became apparent that the bananaquits (Coereba flaveola) from Bonaire required a new subspecific name. Full details on the occurrence of Coereba flaveola in the group of Netherlands Leeward Islands (Aruba, Curaçao, and Bonaire) will be found in my forthcoming monograph on the birds of these islands, in the 7th volume of these Studies, as well as in the above mentioned book.
