G'day all,
Murray Lord has pointed out an apparent Hanzab error that I missed.
Latham's Snipe, states J. E.Gray 1931.
This should be 1831?

Also the Hanzab index for Latham's Snipe is wrong. It is page 29, not 21.

How I wish Hanzab would have a Web Page to list errors, correction or additions
as does Clements Birds of the World: A Checklist

I should have added that Bright Sparks has NO entry for Hardwick(e)

I should have wrote Charles Hardwick was born Lincoln, England, 2/8/1878, NOT 1978
My transcription error.

I have been sent an OCRd copy from the THE CYCLOPEDIA OF TASMANIA. 1900
for CHARLES BROWNE HARDWICKE  a naval man 2/8/1978 - 1880 but no mention of Ornithology

Murray Lord also referred to John Penhallurick's database 
Wow ! My first serious look at it. Lots of good stuff, but no help in this example.
However a G.R.(not J.E.) Gray, is also also quoted 

Bob Forsyth, Mount Isa, NW Qld.

I am slowly putting together an ID table for the Swinhoe's and Latham's Snipes
But a spelling query has prompted the following trail.

Latham's Snipe Gallinago hardwickii
J. E. Gray, 1931, Zool Misc: Misc 16 - Tasmania
The specific epithet is in honour of Charles Hardwick of Tasmania, who discovered the bird.
