Passer rutilans debilis Hartert 

Passer rutilans debilis Hartert, 1904a: 162  (Sind- Tal in Kaschmir).

Now Passer rutilans cinnamomeus (Gould, 1836)  . See Hartert, 1919: 159; Vaurie, 1956: 17–19; Dickinson, 2003: 716; and Summers-Smith, 2009: 796.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 719338View Materials, male, collected in the Sind Valley (= Sind-Tal), Kashmir , India, on 19 July 1873, by Colonel Biddulph (no. 7265.g). From the Rothschild Collection. 

COMMENTS: In the original description, Hartert gave Biddulph’s number of the holotype with unique added letter and measurements for more than one male; the female was not described. There are five male Biddulph skins in AMNH in addition to the holotype, all of which bear the number 7265 with an added letter, different for each. I assume this to be a lot number assigned for a sale. I have considered these five specimens paratypes: Kashmir, AMNH 719349View Materials (7265.a), no date  ; ‘‘Souamaz,’’ AMNH 719352View Materials (7265.h), 15 July, no year  ; Murree, AMNH 719353View Materials (7265.k), AMNH 719354View Materials (7265.j), no date  ; Simla, AMNH 719357View Materials (7265.i), July [18]75. Other specimens with the number 7265 came to AMNH with the Rothschild Collection, but they were either collected by others or were females  .

John Biddulph was in the British Colonial Service and resided in Gilgit, Kashmir, at least twice ( Biddulph, 1881, 1882). In both of his articles, he described the country around Gilgit in which birds were collected. Strangely, he did not list Passer rutilans  or P. cinnamomeus  in either paper, although the specimens are identified as P. cinnamomeus  on his labels.

Lozupone et al. (2004) noted that the Sind Valley extends from Srinagar, 34.08N, 74.50E, to Zoji La Pass, 34.18N, 75.31E.
