A taxonomic reevaluation of the plain pigeon (Columba inornata)
Three subspecies of the Plain Pigeon (Columba inornata) were described in 1915 from very small samples, and the diagnostic color differences among them were rather minor. Examination of the small series (including two types) of the subspecies in the National Museum of Natural History (USNM) revealed that the quality of most of the material available in 1915 was poor and suggested that the supposedly distinctive characters were not consistent.
