Passer hemileucus Ogilvie-Grant and Forbes 

Passer hemileucus Ogilvie-Grant and Forbes, 1899: 3  ( Island of Abd-el-Kuri).

Now Passer hemileucus Ogilvie-Grant and Forbes, 1899  . See Ogilvie-Grant and Forbes, 1903: 58– 59, pl. 7, fig. 1View Fig; Dickinson, 2003: 716; Kirwan, 2008: 83–93; and Summers-Smith, 2009: 799.

SYNTYPE: AMNH 719511, male, collected on Abd al-Kuri (= Abd-el-Kuri) Island (between Somalia and Socotra), on 22 February 1899, by W.R. Ogilvie-Grant (no. 480). From the Rothschild Collection.

COMMENTS: Ogilvie-Grant and Forbes did not designate a type or enumerate their specimens in the original description. Later, Ogilvie-Grant and Forbes (1903: 58–59) noted that they had collected three males and one female on Abd al Kuri. They had visited the island twice, 3–5 December 1898 and 22–23 February 1899 ( Forbes, 1903: xxiv–xxxi). The AMNH specimen had not been recognized as a syntype previously. A male and a female syntype are in BMNH ( Warren and Harrison, 1971: 234) and a male syntype is in LIVCM (no. 31.12.1900.163, collected 5 December 1898, T. Parker, personal commun.).

Species limits within the Passer motitensis  complex have been variously treated (see Kirwan, 2008, for a summary). Summers- Smith (2009: 709) considered P. insularis  to form a superspecies with P. iagoensis  , P. cordofanicus  , P. shelleyi  , P. rufocinctus  , and P. motitensis  , with hemileucus  a subspecies of P. insularis  . However, Kirwan (2008), as a result of his extensive morphological study of specimens of Passer insularis  and Passer hemileucus  , pointed out that differences between these two forms are greater than had been previously appreciated and that they should be considered species.

Dickinson et al. (2011: 190) drew attention to the incorrect dating of this name by Moreau and Greenway (1962: 15), who have been followed by most subsequent authors.
