Abstract:

The Commission has ruled that priority is maintained for Streptopelia risoria (Linnaeus, 1758), the specific name of the ringed turtle-dove (ringed dove; barbary dove). A proposal to conserve its junior subjective synonym Streptopelia roseogrisea (Sundevall, 1857), the specific name of the African collared dove, was not approved.
