Pyromelana nigroventris rufigula van Someren 

Pyromelana nigroventris rufigula van Someren 1921c: 122  (N’zin River).

Now Euplectes nigroventris Cassin, 1848  . See van Someren, 1922a: 149; Hartert, 1928: 194; Moreau and Greenway, 1962: 66–67; Craig, 1993a: 88; Zimmerman et al., 1999: 546; Dickinson, 2003: 725; Fry and Keith, 2004: 223–224; Craig, 2010: 146.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 726070View Materials, adult male, collected on the N’ziu (not N’zin) River , Kitui, Kenya, on 14 December 1918. From the V.G.L. van Someren Collection via the Rothschild Collection. 

COMMENTS: In the original description, van Someren noted that the type with the above data was in the Rothschild Collection and that he examined 10 males and three females from ‘‘ Bura, Teita, Voi , and Kitui in Ukamba.’’ Paratypes in AMNH are: Voi , AMNH 726071–726073View Materials, one male, two females, 28 February 1919; Bura, AMNH 726074View Materials, female, 20 March 1919. AMNH 726083View Materials, male, from Voi and collected on 28 February 1919 is probably also a paratype, but I did not find it in the collection  .

Polhill (1988) gave coordinates for Enziu (= Nziu) as 00.51S, 38.15E.
