Amblyospiza albifrons montana van Someren 

Amblyospiza albifrons montana van Someren, 1921c: 122 (Fort Hall, Kikuyu Mts.)  .

Now Amblyospiza albifrons montana van Someren, 1921  . See Hartert, 1928: 193; Moreau and Greenway, 1962: 31; Zimmerman et al., 1999: 533; Dickinson, 2003: 719; Fry and Keith, 2004: 198–201; and Craig, 2010: 138–139.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 725323View Materials, adult male, collected at Saba Saba, 00.47S, 36.55E– 00.49S, 37.18E ( Polhill, 1988), near Fort Hall , Kikuyu Mountains, Kenya, on 25 April 1918. From the V.G.L. van Someren Collection via the Rothschild Collection.GoogleMaps 

COMMENTS: In the original description, van Someren designated a specimen in the Rothschild Collection bearing the above data as the holotype of montana. He gave the range as Kikuyu , Nairobi , Kisumu, etc., but did not enumerate his paratypes. I have considered as paratypes only the two additional specimens of montana in AMNH that had been part of the V.G.L. van Someren Collection: AMNH 725335View Materials, female, Nairobi, 13 December 1917GoogleMaps  ; AMNH 725345View Materials, unsexed [s], Kisumu, 9 July 1912. There are two paratypes in RMCA ( Louette et al., 2002: 75)  .
