Abstract:Sanford B. Dole described five nominal new taxa of Hawaiian
birds in 1878, but because several of these names were quickly synonymized,
their probable type specimens have been overlooked. Holotypes are here identified
for Accipiter hawaii Dole (=Buteo solitarius Peale), Drepanis rosea Dole
(=Vestiaria coccinea [Forster]), and D. aurea Dole (=Loxops coccineus
[Gmelin]). The five specimens of Pennula millei Dole (=Porzana sandwichensis
millsi [Dole]) have equal status as syntypes. Of the two supposed syntypes of
Fringilla anna Dole (= Ciridops anna [Dole]), only one matches the original
description and this is here considered to be the holotype.
