1667. Otus bakkamoena marathse

(1667) Otus bakkamoena marathae Ticehurst.
THE CENTRAL INDIAN COLLARED SCOPS OWL.
Otus bakkamoena marathae, Fauna B. I., Birds, 2nd ed, vol. iv, p. 424.
Ticehurst restricts this race of Collared Owl to the area from the Central Provinces to Sambalpur and Manbhum in Western Bengal.
Hume records either having taken or had sent to him specimens of birds and eggs both from Sambalpur and from Saugnr but, of course, with the exception of malabaricus (=true bakkamoena), all his races are lumped together. I have no eggs from the area of this subspecies, but eggs taken by Hume and now in the British Museum were taken from January to April,
Four eggs average 33.0 x 27.9 mm.
