Emberizoides sphenurus floresae Griscom

Emberizoides sphenurus floresae Griscom, 1924a: 8 (Cerro Flores, 3600 ft., eastern Chiriqui, Panama).

Now Emberizoides herbicola hypochondriacus Hellmayr, 1906 . See Hellmayr, 1938: 613, Wetmore et al., 1984: 616–618, and Dickinson, 2003: 791.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 182964 View Materials , female, collected on Cerro Flores , 3600 ft, Chiriqui, Panama, on 18 March 1924, by Ludlow Griscom and Rex R. Benson.

COMMENTS: Griscom had the single specimen, for which he gave the AMNH number in the original description. His type locality of Cerro Flores is discussed in depth by Siegel and Olson (2008: 168) ; they conclude that it may be the Cerro Flores that lies 4 km SSW of Cerro Santiago, 08.33N, 81.44W, and 4 km NNE of Hato Chamí, 08.27N, 81.46W. Wetmore et al. (1984: 616–618) discussed this holotype, considering it to be in ‘‘nonadult’’ plumage, and synonymized floresae with E. h. hypochondriacus GoogleMaps ; Hellmayr (1938: 613) had also questioned its validity. Dickinson (2003: 791) recognized floresae, without comment.

Griscom (1924b) wrote a popular article about this expedition.
