COMMENTS: In the original description, van Someren designated as type of centralis a specimen with the above data in the Rothschild Collection. It is the only such specimen that came to AMNH. Van Someren (1922a: 3) gave the range of centralis as ‘‘ Lake districts of Central Africa , Uganda, Kivu, N. Tanganyika, Toro , Lake Albert Edward , Bukoba’ ’ without enumerating his specimens, but while he was writing this paper on East African birds, he had access to the Rothschild Collection.
