Crateropus smithi lacuum Neumann  

Crateropus smithi lacuum Neumann, 1903: 15   (Alelu, north of Lake Abassi).

Now Turdoides leucopygia lacuum ( Neumann,  

1903). See Fry et al., 2000: 47, and David and

Gosselin, 2002b: 261, 281.

LECTOTYPE: AMNH 587425 View Materials , adult male, collected at Awadi­Alelu , north of Lake Abassi , 078049N, 388279E ( Deignan, 1964b: 344), Ethiopia, on 3 (not 9) December 1900, by Oscar Neumann (no. 332). From the Rothschild Collection.  

COMMENTS: In the original description, Neumann did not say how many specimens he had, nor did he give his field number of the type. However, Neumann (1906b: 261), under Crateropus leucopygius lacuum   , later gave complete information on his five specimens, with both numbers 331 and 332 listed as males from Alelu, nördlich des Abassi­ Sees, collected on 3 December 1900; opposite number 332 he noted ‘‘Typus der Subspecies’’, thereby designating it the lectotype. The date of 9 December published in the original description was a misreading of the smudged date on the field label, as both numbers 331 and 332 were collected on 3 December, and no specimens were listed as having been collected on 9 December.

Specimen number 331 originally had been marked ‘‘Typus’’ by Neumann, but this was later marked out. Apparently missing Neumann’s own earlier designation, Hartert (1920: 486) then incorrectly listed Neumann’s number 331 as the type, and it bears the Rothschild type label. Because it has been considered the type for so many years, number 331 is retained in the type collection; however, it has been annotated to indicate that number 332 is the lectotype. An AMNH type label has been added to number 332.

Paralectotypes are: AMNH 587424 View Materials (Neumann no. 331), male, Alelu , nördlich des Abassi­Sees, 3 December 1900   ; and AMNH 587428 View Materials (283), male, Zuaï­See, 24 November 1900. Neumann (1906b: 261) noted that the male ( AMNH 587426 View Materials ) and female ( AMNH 587427 View Materials ) collected at Habela in Sidamo on 11 December 1900 were intermediate between lacuum and omoensis   ; they are not paralectotypes.

Alelu is shown on the map in Neumann (1902).

Crateropus smithi omoensis Neumann  

Crateropus smithi omoensis Neumann, 1903: 15   (Senti River (southern affluent to the Omo), between Uba and Gofa).

Now Turdoides leucopygia omoensis ( Neumann, 1903)   . See Fry et al., 2000: 47, and David and Gosselin, 2002b: 261, 281.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 587452 View Materials , adult male, collected on the Senti River , Ethiopia, on 30 January 1901, by Oscar Neumann (no. 713). From the Rothschild Collection.  

COMMENTS: In the original description, the type was said to be a male collected on the Senti River on 30 January 190l. Neumann (1906b: 262) listed his five specimens under Crateropus leucopygius omoensis   , where number 713 is the only specimen collected on 30 January 1901; thus it is the holotype. The field label is marked ‘‘Typus’’ by Neumann, it is listed as the type in Neumann (1906b: 262) and in Hartert (1920: 486), and it bears the Rothschild type label. Paratypes are AMNH 587453 (Neumann no. 699), female, Senti Tal, 29 January 1901; AMNH 587454 (596), male, Gardulla, 14 January 1901; AMNH 587455 (1133), male, Bako in Binescho, 19 April 1901; and AMNH 587456 (1134), male?, Bako in Binescho, 19 April 1901.

The USBGN (1982a: 557, 657) listed ZageSjet’ (5 Senti) at 068399N, 378129E; of two Ubas listed (USBGN, 1982a: 617), the one at 068189N, 378009E is closest to Senti.
