List of bird types in the collections of the Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle, Paris. 15: Frogmouths, Potoos and Nightjars (Podargidae, Nyctibiidae and Caprimulgidae)

The types of five Podargidae, one Nyctibiidae and four Caprimulgidae taxa are reviewed and commented upon. The Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle, Paris owns the holotypes of the following taxa: Podargus papuensis Quoy & Gaimard, 1830, P. vincendonii Hombron & Jacquinot in Jacquinot & Pucheran, 1853, P. ocellatus Quoy & Gaimard, 1830, Batrachostomus hodgsoni indochinae Stresemann, 1937, P. cornutus Temminck in Temminck & Laugier de Chartrouse, 1822, Stenopsis cayennensis manati Pinchon, 1963 and Caprimulgus arundinaceus Hombron & Jacquinot in Jacquinot & Pucheran, 1853, as well as a paratype of Batrachostomus hodgsoni indochinae Stresemann, 1937 and a syntype of Caprimulgus arenicolor Severtzov, 1875. Evidence is lacking for confirming that the designated specimens of Caprimulgus grandis Gmelin, 1789 (Nyctibiidae) and Caprimulgus manurus Vieillot, 1817 (Caprimulgidae) actually are types.
