Hyphantornis crocata Hartlaub 

Hyphantornis crocata Hartlaub, 1881: 100 (Magungo)  .

Now Ploceus ocularis crocatus ( Hartlaub, 1881)  . See Hartlaub, 1887: 341; Hartert, 1907a: 497; 1919: 138; Moreau and Greenway, 1962: 38; Dickinson, 2003: 720; Fry and Keith, 2004: 117– 120; and Craig, 2010: 182–183.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 724466View Materials, female (missexed as male on label), Magungo, 02.15N, 31.30E ( Chapin, 1954a), Lake Mobutu Sese Seko (= Albert Njansa), Uganda, collected by Emin Bey. From the Rothschild Collection.GoogleMaps 

COMMENTS: In the original description, Hartlaub described the male and said that he had the single specimen from Magungo. Hartlaub (1887: 341) later referred to his earlier description of crocata  , gave the date of collection as 25 November, and noted that the original description had referred to the Magungo bird as a male, but that it had been missexed. This holotype no longer has an original Emin label, and the sex was probably miscopied as Emin was known for his careful sexing of specimens. The label now on the specimen also does not have Emin’s number, no. 152, or the date of collection, 25 November 1879, as cited by Hartert (1907a: 497). Hartlaub (1881: pl. 5) provided a map showing Emin’s collecting localities, and ( Hartlaub, 1887: pl. 14, fig. 11) illustrated this form as Symplectes crocatus  .

Sánchez-Osés 2010: 67 noted that this holotype is missing from UMB.
