Abstract (in english)
   Jean Cabanis, curator of ornithology at the Museum für Naturkunde, Berlin, Germany, described, in 1873-1874, 34 new species of birds on the basis of specimens collected in Peru by Konstanty Jelski, a Polish naturalist. He borrowed or purchased these specimens from Władysław Taczanowski (1819-1890), curator of zoology at the Imperial Warszawa University in Warszawa, Poland. We located and identified their types in the museums of Berlin (ZMB) and Warszawa (MIZ). Types of 21 species (28 type specimens) were deposited in the ZMB, of which types of 18 species (22 specimens) survive. The MIZ originally housed types of 14 species (19 type specimens), of which the types of only four species (4 specimens) survive. Overall, all types were lost for 12 species of Peruvian birds described by Cabanis on the basis of Jelski's collections.
