Spreo albicapillus horrensis Keith 

Spreo albicapillus horrensis Keith, 1964: 162  (North Horr, north-west Kenya).

Now Lamprotornis albicapillus horrensis Keith, 1964  . See Turner and Forbes-Watson, 1976: 58; Feare and Craig, 1999: 231; Zimmerman et al., 1999: 515; Fry et al., 2000: 633–634; Dickinson, 2003: 658; Lovette and Rubenstein, 2007: 1031–1056; Ash and Atkins, 2009: 301; and Craig and Feare: 2009: 749.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 766689View Materials, adult male, collected at North Horr , 1300 ft, 03.19N, 37.04E (Times Atlas  ), northwest Kenya, on 1 November 1962, by Stuart Keith (no. 579).GoogleMaps 

COMMENTS: Keith cited the AMNH number of the holotype in the original description. There is one paratype: North Horr, AMNH 827365, immature male, 1 November 1962, Keith (no. 578).

Lovette and Rubenstein (2007), as a result of their molecular studies of starlings, have included the genus Spreo  in the genus Lamprotornis  . Other authors cited above have recognized horrensis, except Feare and Craig (1999: 231) and Craig and Feare (2009: 749), who did not cite the extremely small measurements of the type and paratype of horrensis. The small size is noticeable in the field ( Turner and Forbes-Watson (1976: 58). Measurements of the two males ( Keith, 1964: 162) and weights recorded on Keith’s labels are: Wing, 130 mm, 137; tail, 89, 93; weights, 75, 77.
