Ploceus holoxanthus Hartlaub 

Ploceus holoxanthus Hartlaub, 1891a: 22 (Mtoni)  .

Now Ploceus subaureus aureoflavus Smith, 1839  . See Hartert, 1907a: 499–500; Hartert, 1919: 140; Moreau and Greenway, 1962: 40; Dickinson, 2003: 720; Fry and Keith, 2004: 126–127; and Craig, 2010: 161.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 724738View Materials, unsexed 

[adult male], collected at Mtoni, 06.52S,

39.16E, lower reaches of the Ruvu River (= Kingani River) ( Polhill, 1988), Tanzania, in January (year not recorded), by F. Bohndorff. From the Rothschild Collection.

COMMENTS: In the original description, Hartlaub described a single male from Mtoni. Hartert (1907a: 500) listed a male and a female from Mtoni, which are now in AMNH, but the female was not mentioned in the original description.

Most type specimens of names introduced by Hartlaub are in UMB; Sánchez-Osés (2010: 67) noted that the type of P. holoxanthus  was not found there but he thought that it might be in ZMB  ; Rothschild obtained specimens from many collections, but there is no indication that this one came from ZMB; he probably received it directly from Hartlaub.
