Genus Artamus Vieillot, 1816, woodswallow; Gr. -οιδης -oidēs  resembling; from its general resemblance to the Black-faced Woodswallow Artamus cinereus; "The only name available for the central east Australian form is wilkinsi Kinnear (Kinnear 1924).  Its apparently grey-headed holotype, a male, was collected in early May when migrating individuals of robusta Latham, or intergrades between it and the central east form, could be expected to visit the type locality, Mt Driven in south Qld just east of St George.  This is borne out by its published measurements: wing 164, tail 128mm (Kinnear l.c.), giving a tail:wing ratio of 0.78.  Accordingly the central east Australian form is re-named and re-typified here.  TYPIFICATION OF NEW TAXA: Coracina papuensis artamoides Schodde & Mason" (Schodde & Mason 1999) (subsp.
