Scarlet Minivet Pericrocotus speciosus
|Date||13 Nov 1993|

|Lim (2009) just mentions that this record was by Peter Kennerley, with no citation. It is impossible to check for any records from the year 1993 as the entire volume of SINAV 7, which would have dealt with records from that year, was never published. No information is available anywhere regarding this sighting. Given that this species was still present in Singapore back in 1993 we are accepting this record. Note that Wang & Hails (2007) does not list specific sightings for this species and just mentions that it is rare.|
|Verdict||Accepted / Wild (Unverifiable)|
