The description was read before the R. Swedish Academy of Science on the 12th. December 1838, but did not appear in print until 1839 (exact date impossible to ascertain)." vol.8 No.4 1851.04.09 (p.128) 1945 was ser.3 e.g. Gyldenstolpe, N. 1945.

Kupfer.Nat.Vog. Kupfertafeln zur Naturgeschichte der Vögel Kittlitz 1832-33 Frankfurt [ According to Zimmer, was issued in three parts. Part I, pp. I-II, 3-8, pll. 1-12 1832 Part II. ("XX") pp. 9-20, pll.13-24 1832 (?) Part III pp. 21-28, pll.25-36 1833. The date of the second part (given as an apparent typo by Zimmer as "XX") is the problem. The following (currently valid) taxa fall into 1832 or 1833 depending on the interpretation made. Aplonis corvina (Kittlitz) 1833 Kupfer.Nat.Vog. 2 p.12 pl.15 fig.3 Aplonis opaca (Kittlitz) 1833 Kupfer.Nat.Vog. 2 p.11 pl.15 fig.2 Zosterops conspicillatus (Kittlitz) 1833 Kupfer.Nat.Vog. 2 p.15 pl.19 fig.1 Phrygilus fruticeti (Kittlitz) 1833 Kupfer.Nat.Vog. 2 p.18 pl.23 fig.1 Phrygilus alaudinus (Kittlitz) 1833 Kupfer.Nat.Vog. 2 p.18 pl.23 fig.2 The Richmond Index has all these as 1833. With no notations regarding date. Peters has these as 1833 with the exception of Z. conspicillatus "1832?". Sherborn list these as "1832-3" Zimmer bases his "1832?" on Gadow's note in volume X Cat.Birds.Brit.Mus. My current plan (99.10.23) is to leave taxa from Heft. 2 as 1833, understanding that additional evidence MAY indicate that 1832 is correct (this is somewhat my suspicion). My rationale is that 1833 is most consistent with the majority of published works. (particulary Peters and the Richmond Index). ]
