Sporopipes frontalis loitanus van Someren  

Sporopipes frontalis loitanus van Someren, 1919: 54 (Loita)   .

Now Sporopipes frontalis emini Neumann, 1900   . See Moreau and Greenway, 1962: 30; Zimmerman et al., 1999: 533; Dickinson, 2003: 719; Fry and Keith, 2004: 64–65; and Craig, 2010: 137.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 722610 View Materials , adult female (not male, as in original description), collected at Loita , ca. 01.40S, 35.40E ( Polhill, 1988), Kenya, on 8 July 1918. From the V.G.L. van Someren Collection via the Rothschild Collection. GoogleMaps  

COMMENTS: In the original description, van Someren said that the type, with the above data, was in the Rothschild Collection and that 18 specimens were collected. Four additional specimens from the V.G.L. van Someren Collection, collected before the publication of loitanus, came to AMNH. I consider them paratypes: Loita, AMNH 722609 View Materials , male, 10 July 1918, collected by A. Blayney Percival   ; Kacheliba, AMNH 722617 View Materials , male, AMNH 722618 View Materials , female, 11 June 1917   ; Maktau, AMNH 722619 View Materials , male, 23 June 1918. Hartert did not list this holotype in any of his lists of types in the Rothschild Collection   .
