COMMENTS: In the original description, only the male was described, and the individual collected by Grauer at Entebbe was designated the type. Neumann said that seven of the eight (male) specimens that he examined had the lores black and that other specimens from Entebbe were in F.J. Jackson’s collection. Only one additional male specimen from Entebbe came to AMNH with the Rothschild Collection. It is a paratype: AMNH 724949, adult male, collected at Entebbe, Uganda, on 12 March 1904, from the F.J. Jackson Collection. It has the lores black. Two specimens from the F.J. Jackson Collection were purchased from the dealer W.F.H. Rosenberg by Leonard C. Sanford and presented to AMNH. Only one of these was a male and it was collected at Entebbe on 7 July 1911, after the publication of rex.
