Malimbus malimbica melanobrephos Hartert 

Malimbus malimbica melanobrephos Hartert, 1907a: 491  ( Gold Coast).

Now Malimbus malimbicus nigrifrons (Hartlaub, 1855)  . See Hartert, 1919: 140; Moreau and Greenway, 1962: 59–60; Dickinson, 2003: 724; Fry and Keith, 2004: 89–92; and Craig, 2010: 195.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 725054View Materials, unsexed [male adult], collected in Ghana (= Gold Coast), Fanti preparation. From the Rothschild Collection (no. 719). 

COMMENTS: In the original description, Hartert gave the number ‘‘719’’ for the type; the Rothschild Collection was never cataloged, but this number has been added to the Rothschild type label. There is no other label. Hartert gave the range of melanobrephos as ‘‘ Upper Guinea from Liberia to the Gold Coast and Togo.’’ None of the other specimens from these localities that came to AMNH are dated and it is not possible to know whether Hartert had them in hand when he named melanobrephos  ; they appear for the most part to be specimens that were purchased from a dealer and have minimum data.
