Amblyospiza aethiopica Neumann 

Amblyospiza aethiopica Neumann, 1902a: 9  (in der Landschaft Malo nahe dem Omo; bei Anderatscha in Kaffa).

Now Amblyospiza albifrons melanota (Heuglin, 1863)  . See Neumann, 1905: 342–343; Hartert, 1919: 137; Moreau and Greenway, 1962: 31; Dickinson, 2003: 719; Fry and Keith, 2004: 198– 201; Ash and Atkins, 2009: 336; and Craig, 2010: 138–139.

LECTOTYPE: AMNH 725370View Materials, adult male, collected at Uaja , Malo Region , Ethiopia, on 13 February 1901, by Oscar Neumann (no. 795). From the Rothschild Collection. 

COMMENTS: In the original description, Neumann listed his two specimens but did not designate a type. Later, Neumann (1905: 342) listed the male bearing his number 795 as the type, thereby designating it the lectotype of aethiopica  . The paratype is AMNH 725371, female (not male, as in Neumann, 1905: 342), Anderatscha, Kaffa, Ethiopia, 17 March 1901, O. Neumann (no. 1019).

I did not find the locality ‘‘Uaja’’; howev- er, in his itinerary, Neumann (1904c: 323), noted that he was at Banka, 06.33N, 36.38E ( Ash and Atkins, 2009: 403), on 14 February 1901. Neumann (1902b) wrote an account of his travels, with a map showing his itinerary, but it did not include all of his localities.
