While digging through Schodde and Mason (1999; The Directory of
Australian Birds, Passerines), I recently encountered a minor
discrepancy and hope someone out there could help clarify the issue.

In the process of splitting the mainland Australian taxon _Arses
lorealis_ from the Frilled Monarch _Arses telescopthalmus_, Schodde and
Mason gave _Arses lorealis_ a new English name. On page 49 they call the
species "Frilled-necked Monarch", but in the full species account on
page 503 they use "Frill-necked Monarch". Hopefully the former is simply
a typographical error, as Frill-necked seems to roll off the tongue a
little easier, but which is correct (or at least in mainstream usage)?

Many thanks, Jon.
