Crateropus plebeius kikuyuensis Neumann  

Crateropus plebeius kikuyuensis Neumann, 1906a: 7   (Escarpment Station).

Now Turdoides jardineii emini (Neumann, 1904)   . See Sclater, 1930: 352, footnote 1, and Fry et al., 2000: 40.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 587574 View Materials , adult female, collected at the Escarpment Station , 6500 ft, Kenya, in February 1901, by William Doherty. From the Rothschild Collection.  

COMMENTS: In the original description, Neumann noted that the type, with the above data, was in the Rothschild Collection. There are now in AMNH 12 additional Doherty specimens collected at the Escarpment Station in December 1900 – April 1901, but the above specimen is the only one collected in February. It is marked ‘‘Typus’’ in Neumann’s hand and bears a Rothschild type label. Neumann (1906a: 7) did not say how many specimens he examined, so the status of the remaining Doherty specimens is uncertain.

Hartert (1902e: 620) reported that in October 1900 the Escarpment Station was the terminus of the Uganda Railway, about halfway between Nairobi and Naivasha, on the eastern side of the Great Rift Valley. Chapin (1954: 661) gave the coordinates as 018019S, 368369E. Deignan (1964b: 343) recognized kikuyuensis.
