[Considerations on an alleged specimen of a Tingitan raven Corvus corax tingitanus Irby, 1874 from the Arrigoni degli Oddi Collection]
[The Common raven Corvus corax is an holoartic species, divided into 12 subspecies, three of which are present in Italy. Based on the most recent systematics, the sub-specific attribution of the Italian populations has been discussed. In the Arrigoni degli Oddi’s bird collection a specimen from Sardinia was attributed to C. c. tingitanus, a subspecies of the North Africa coasts and accidental in Italy. Some biometric parameters have been measured and compared with the literature data. This work allowed to review the attribution of this specimen by Arrigoni degli Oddi and report it to C. c. hispanus.]
