Pyrgita minor C.L. Brehm 

Pyrgita minor C.L. Brehm, 1842  : col. 897 (Egypten und Buchara).

Now Passer hispaniolensis hispaniolensis (Temminck, 1820)  . See Hartert, 1918a: 15; and Summers-Smith, 1988: 162–171, 311.

LECTOTYPE: AMNH 456506View Materials, male winter (‘‘hieme,’’ as on label), Egypt (= ‘‘Aegypto,’’ as on label), collected by Eduard Rüppell. From the Brehm Collection via the Rothschild Collection. 

COMMENTS: In the original description, Brehm said that he had specimens from Egypt and Buchara and described male and female. By listing the male that is now AMNH 456506 as the type, Hartert (1918a: 15) designated it the lectotype. Only one additional specimen collected before 1842 was cataloged as minor  at AMNH, paralectotype AMNH 456507, an undated female, winter (‘‘hieme,’’ as on label), sent from Egypt by W.F. Hemprich (= ex Aegypto missus ab Hemprich,’’ as on label).
