Cosmopsarus regius donaldsoni van Someren  

Cosmopsarus regius donaldsoni van Someren, 1919: 52 (Mavsabit)   .

Now Lamprotornis regius Reichenow, 1879   . See van Someren, 1924: 70; Hartert, 1928: 192; Amadon, 1962a: 102; Zimmerman et al., 1999: 514; Fry et al., 2000: 622–623; Dickinson, 2003: 657; and Craig and Feare, 2009: 747–748.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 669177 View Materials , adult male, collected at Marsabit, 02.20N, 37.59E ( Polhill, 1988), Kenya, on 20 February 1911, by A. Blayney Percival. From the Rothschild Collection. GoogleMaps  

COMMENTS: In the original description, van Someren said that the type, with the above data, was in the Rothschild Collection, and that the form was found in Somaliland, southern Ethopia, and in the northern frontier district of East Africa. Later, van Someren (1924: 70) noted that he had mistaken the type locality of the nominate subspecies of L. regius   and that his subspecies donaldsoni was a synonym of L. r. regius   . He then described L. r. magnificus ( van Someren, 1924: 71)   from Tsavo, the type of which is not in AMNH.
