Strophiops oberholseri Maynard, 1913

Original Description

S. oberholseri new. Recessional after aga­va, resembling it externally, but with size, margin, and teeth of coryi. 220. Southwest Bay, New Providence, near the landing. I name this recessional species in honor of Mr. Harry C. Oberholser of the United States Biological Survey, Washington, D.C., who, through his keen analytical studies, has dis­covered many cases of the effects of cyclic re­cession in birds, and whose philosophical con­clusions, derived from those studies, point clearly toward the dawn of a New Ornithol­ogy.
