Penthetria laticauda suahelica van Someren 

Penthetria laticauda suahelica van Someren, 1921c: 121 (Nairobi River)  .

Now Euplectes ardens suahelicus ( van Someren, 1921)  . See van Someren, 1922a: 151; Hartert, 1928: 194; 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 727204View Materials, adult male, collected on the Nairobi River , Kenya, on 4 April 1917. From the V.G.L van Someren Collection via the Rothschild Collection. 

COMMENTS: In the original description, van Someren designated as type of suahelicus a specimen in the Rothschild Collection bearing the above data. Only one specimen collected on that date came to AMNH with the Rothschild Collection , and it bears a Rothschild type label. In the description, van Someren gave the range as East Africa , and later ( van Someren, 1922a: 151) included the following localities in suahelicus: Kerio , Kirimiri , Elgon , Kisumu, Maraquet , Elgeyu , Burnt Forest , Kikuyu , Narobi , and Ukamba. The following specimens came to AMNH with the Rothschild Collection and are considered paratypes of suahelicus. Burnt Forest , AMNH 727199–727201View Materials, two males, one female, 15–22 September 1918  ; Nairobi Plains , AMNH 727202View Materials, 727203View Materials, males, 2 June 1918  ; Nairobi or Nairobi River , AMNH 727205–727208View Materials, three males, one female, January–September 1917  ; Kirimiri , AMNH 727214View Materials, male, 17 April 1917, all from the van Someren Collection. Also Kikuyu, AMNH 727217View Materials, male, February 1919, collected by H.J. Allen Turner  ; and AMNH 727218View Materials, male, 3 December 1894, collected by O. Neumann. Because van Someren worked in the Rothschild Collection, these last two specimens would have been available to him and so are treated as paratypes  .
