Onychognathus preussi Reichenow 

Onychognathus preussi Reichenow, 1892a: 4  (Buea, 950–1200 m.).

Now Onychognathus walleri preussi Reichenow, 1892  . See Sclater, 1930: 664; Amadon, 1956: 23– 24; 1962a: 87; Fry et al., 2000: 578–580; Dickinson, 2003: 658; and Craig and Feare, 2009: 742.

SYNTYPE: AMNH 669274, adult male, collected at Buea, 1000 m, 04.09N, 09.13E (Times Atlas), Cameroun, on 16 September 1891, by Paul R. Preuss. From the Rothschild Collection.

COMMENTS: The original description is usually cited as Reichenow (1892b: 184), published in April, 1892. However, the description appeared in Reichenow (1892a: 4) of 19 February 1892, and is so cited in Reichenow (1892b: 184). The earlier description was published verbatim in the later paper and, while he described male and female, in neither did Reichenow designate a type nor indicate how many specimens he examined. AMNH 669274 falls within the range of altitudes, 950–1200 m, and dates, 11–16 September 1891, given by Reichenow for his material. Preuss’ original label remains on the specimen, and the reverse is marked ‘‘ Onychognathus preussi Rchw.  Typus.’’ It was not listed by Hartert in any of his Rothschild type lists, and the specimen bears an AMNH type label, filled in by Amadon. The whereabouts of other specimens is not known.
