Carl. pl. 67 = Columba striata Linné.  ...  Geopelia striata striata (Linné)  Columba striata Linné, Syst. Nat., ed. 12, 1, 1766, p. 282. (East Indies, restricted type locality Java.)...  2 It has been claimed that Columba sinica Linné, Syst. Nat., ed. 10, 1, 1758, p. 164, based entirely on the Chinese Dove of Albin, p. 43, pl. 46, is an earlier name for this bird; in my opinion there are too many discrepancies in Albin's description to permit it to be used with any degree of certainty as the basis for this or any other dove."
