Psaltriparus lloydi Sennett

Psaltriparus lloydi Sennett, 1888: 43 (Limpia Cañon, near Fort Davis, Presidio County).

Now considered a hybrid population between P. minimus plumbeus and the melanotis group of populations. See Raitt, 1967, Rea, 1986, Sloane, 2001, and Harrap, 2008a: 99.

SYNTYPES: AMNH 86426 View Materials , adult male, and AMNH 86427 View Materials , sexed as male on original label but changed to female by Sennett and published as female ; both collected at Limpia Canyon , near Fort Davis, 30.35N, 103.54W (Times Atlas), Presidio County, Texas, USA, on 16 June 1887 by William Lloyd (nos. 120 and 121, respectively) for G.B. Sennett (nos. 4895 and 4896, respectively) GoogleMaps .

COMMENTS: In the original description, Sennett listed eight specimens of lloydi, giving his collection numbers for each and designating 4895 and 4896 as syntypes. In a note on the reverse of the type label, J.T. M[arshall] called attention to the original sexing of AMNH 86427 and considered it a juvenile male. Because Sennett designated the above two specimens as syntypes, the other six specimens in his original series, his numbers 4897, 4898, 4903, 4904, 4912, and 4913, are excluded from the type series (ICZN, 1999: 77, Art. 72.4.6).

Following Raitt’s (1967) study, most authors have agreed that P. melanotis and P. minimus are conspecific; but no two authors seem to agree on the validity of lloydi. Harrap (2008a: 99) considered lloydi a hybrid population between plumbeus and the melanotis groups of populations.
