Pyromelana flammiceps rothschildi Neumann 

Pyromelana flammiceps rothschildi Neumann, 1907: 596 (Abaya See)  .

Now Euplectes hordeaceus (Linnaeus, 1758)  . See Moreau and Greenway, 1962: 67; Craig, 1993a: 89; Dickinson, 2003: 725; Fry and Keith, 2004: 224–226; Ash and Atkins, 2009: 343; and Craig, 2010: 146–147.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 726245View Materials, adult male, collected on Lake Abaya (= Abaya See, or Lac Marguerite, as on label), 06.01N, 37.41E– 06.36N, 38.07E ( Ash and Atkins, 2009: 399), Ethiopia, on 5 June 1905, on the Baron Maurice de Rothschild Expedition to Ethopia. From the Rothschild Collection.GoogleMaps 

COMMENTS: In the original description, Neumann designated the type as a male from Lake Abaya and stated that he had five males in breeding plumage. He gave the range as from Lake Abaya to Borana, Ethiopia. The four paratypes are: AMNH 726241View Materials, male plumage (sexed as female on label), Wolamo (= Walamo, as on label) Region, 25 June, 1905  ; AMNH 726242–726244View Materials, males, Gatou, Borana, 29 May 1905. These specimens were formerly mounted. According to Maurice de Rothschild (1922: xvii) the expedition was in Central Ethopia in May and June 1905. Hartert did not list this holotype in any of his lists of types in the Rothschild Collection, and it had not previously been included with the AMNH type specimens  .

Craig (1993a: 89) considered rothschildi  to be a synonym of E. hordeaceus craspedopterus  , which many authors recognize; Fry and Keith (2004: 224–226) and Craig (2010: 146– 147) considered E. hordeaceus  monotypic.
