Vitiflora leucopyga Brehm  

Vitiflora leucopyga Brehm (Ex Paul de Württemberg MS)   , 1855: 225 (in Aegypten und Südeuropa).

Now Oenanthe leucopyga leucopyga ( Brehm, 1855)   . See Hartert, 1918a: 34, and Keith et al., 1992: 503.

LECTOTYPE: AMNH 455146 View Materials , adult male, collected in Nubia (5 Nubien, on label), southern Egypt, on 30 March 1850. From the Brehm Collection via the Rothschild Collection.  

COMMENTS: In the original description, Brehm said that V. leucopyga   was from the same locality as V. monacha, which is that given above, and that the name was based on the manuscript name, Lucotoa leucopyga   , of Paul de Wrttbg (5 Württemberg). Hartert (1910a: 699) noted that he was only able to be sure of this name by studying the type and referring to A.E. Brehm (1858: 66), who there gave the name as Lutucoa leucopygaia   and credits Paul de Württemberg with the description. Three additional specimens labeled leucopyga   by Brehm are paralectotypes: AMNH 455144 and 455145, collected at Abu­Hammed in the Sudan in 1849, and AMNH 455147, collected in the Sudan, but without a date.

A pencilled note on the Rothschild label in hand unknown reads: ‘‘Erlegungsort nicht weit nordlich von Korosko’ ’. This is perhaps the basis for Vaurie’s (1959: 353) statement that the type was collected near Kurusku (5 Korosko), 228359N, 328239E (Times Atlas), Egypt, thus restricting the type locality. I traced this to A.E. Brehm’s account of his travels in Sudan, 1847–1852   ; on 31 March 1850 he was in Korosko (see Arndt, 1975: 259).
