Penthetria ardens teitensis van Someren 

Penthetria ardens teitensis van Someren, 1921c: 122 (Bura Hills)  .

Now Euplectes ardens ardens ( Boddaert, 1783)  . See van Someren 1922a: 151; Hartert, 1928: 194; Chapin, 1954b: 443–448; Moreau and Greenway, 1962: 73; Craig, 1993b: 141–143; Zimmerman et al., 1999: 547–548; Dickinson, 2003: 726; Fry and Keith, 2004: 239–242; and Craig, 2010: 144–145.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 727143View Materials, adult male, collected in the Bura Hills , 03.19S, 38.20E ( Polhill, 1988), Tieta, Kenya, on 21 March 1919. From the V.G.L. van Someren Collection via the Rothschild Collection.GoogleMaps 

COMMENTS: In the original description, van Someren designated as type of teitensis a specimen in the Rothschild Collection with the above data, and only one such specimen came to AMNH. He gave the range as ‘‘East of Kilimanjaro and Teita, Bura Hills,’’ but did not elaborate further on this except to say that specimens in the Rothschild Collection supported his character of narrower tail feathers ( van Someren, 1922a: 151). I am unable to decide whether any paratypes are now in AMNH; perhaps AMNH 727144 and AMNH 727145, collected in March 1896, from Morogoro (= Mrogoro), 06.49S, 37.40E ( Polhill, 1988), Tanzania, are specimens that he had in mind. There are two paratypes in RMCA ( Louette et al., 2002: 77).
