is still a debate between the sindikat teams in the region of bima, whether this type should be named in accordance with the name of our area or still follow the name of other areas, in javan munia we want to replace with Bima Munia because so many of this type in our area to be considered as a pest for the farmers :)

For future reference given that all changes are, for the time being, being blocked.  I attempted to reference the (sic) Bima Munia, but was unable to come up with anything in particular that referenced the Javan Munia sensu stricto.

However, for me these birds are not Lonchura leucogastroides however you want to call them.  For me, these are adult Lonchura quinticolor (Five-coloured Munia).
