I don't think it's fair to suggest that Edwin was incorrect - the race
of Shining Bronze-Cuckoo that we have in Australia, ie. Chrysococcyx
lucidus plagosus, was always known in the past as the Golden
Bronze-Cuckoo.  Most of us don't call subspecies/races by their
particular names in print, but we often refer to Yellow Rosellas, Mallee
Ringnecks, etc. in other discussions!
