Description:

Modern common name : Solomon Island’s cokatoo, Ducorps’ cockatoo, Solomons corella or broad-crested corella.

Modern binomial nameCacatua ducorpsii

Distribution : Solomon Islands

First described Pucheran 1853 (Finsch 1863) 

From : Greene, Parrots in Captivity.

Historically, the discovery of the species as Lophochroa goffini is attributed to Otto Finsch in 1863. It was named for Andreas Leopold Goffin, a friend of Finsch and apparently a Dutch naval lieutenant who died the same year at the age of 26. In 2000, it became clear that Finsch’s formal description of this species was based on two specimens that actually belonged to an entirely different cockatoo species, the Ducorps’ or Solomons cockatoo (Cacatua ducorpsii).Cacatua goffini thus became a synonym for Cacatua ducorpsii
