Ploceus ocularius  [sic] po Hartert

Ploceus ocularius  [sic] po Hartert, 1907a: 498 (Fishtown, Fernando Po).

Now Ploceus nigricollis brachypterus Swainson, 1837  . See Hartert, 1919: 138; Amadon, 1953: 433; Moreau and Greenway, 1962: 38; Dickinson, 2003: 720; Fry and Keith, 2004: 115–117; and Craig, 2010: 182.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 724416View Materials, adult male, collected at Basupú (= Fishtown), Bioko (= Fernando Po) Island, Republic of Equatorial Guinea, on 2 January 1904, by E. Seimund (no. 3119). From the Rothschild Collection. 

COMMENTS: In the original description, Hartert gave the number of the holotype as 3119, with the above data. In addition, he had an adult female collected by Seimund, an adult male and a young bird collected by Fraser, and a half dozen skins in BMNH that he had examined. Paratypes in AMNH are: Fishtown, AMNH 724417View Materials, female, 3 January 1904, collected by Seimund  ; ‘‘ Fernando Po,’’ AMNH 724418View Materials, male, undated, collected by Fraser, Ex. Mus. T.C.E. no. 2092, AMNH 724419View Materials, juvenile, undated, collected by Fraser (no. 1151), Ex. Mus. T.C.E. no. 2971  .

Basupú is just east of Malabo (= Santa Isabel), 03.45N, 08.48E (Times Atlas  ).

Most authors consider po a synonym of P. nigricollis brachypterus  , but it is recognized by Dickinson (2003: 720) and considered ‘‘possibly worthy of recognition’’ by Craig (2010: 182).
