Yellow-faced Myna (Mino dumontii) - HBW 14, p. 712
French: Mino de Dumont
Spanish: Miná Carigualdo
Other common names: Orange-faced Grackle, Orange-faced/Papuan/Long-tailed(!) Myna
Taxonomy: Mino Dumontii Lesson, 1827, Dorey, north-west New Guinea.
Sometimes treated as conspecific with M. kreffti; populations of that species from SW Bismarcks appear morphologically closer to present species than to other populations of M. kreffti, suggesting that separate species status may require reassessment. Monotypic.
Distribution: West Papuan Is (Waigeo, Batanta, Salawati), New Guinea and many small offshore islands (except those off SE coast), and Aru Is.
