Passer domesticus halfae Meinertzhagen 

Passer domesticus halfae Meinertzhagen, 1921: 67 (Wadi Halfa)  .

Now Passer domesticus niloticus Nicoll and Bonhote, 1909  . See Hartert, 1928: 198; Dickinson, 2003: 716; and Summers-Smith, 2009: 793–794.

LECTOTYPE: AMNH 718632View Materials, adult male, collected on Wadi Halfa , 21.55N, 31.20E (Times Atlas), Sudan, on 21 February 1904, from the N.C. Rothschild, Henley, and Wollaston Collection. From the Rothschild Collection.GoogleMaps 

COMMENTS: When Meinertzhagen named this form, he noted that the type was a male in the Rothschild Collection from Wadi Halfa and that he measured five males. Six males, all with the same data, came to AMNH with the Rothschild Collection  ; none of the original labels is marked ‘‘type’’ by Meinertzhagen. AMNH 718632View Materials bears the Rothschild type label, indicating that it was the intended type, and it was so cataloged at AMNH. Therefore, in order to remove the ambiguity associated with all specimens bearing the same data, I hereby designate AMNH 718632View Materials the lectotype of Passer domesticus halfae  . The five paralectotypes are: AMNH 718633–718637View Materials, all males, Wadi Halfa, 21 February 1904, from the N.C. Rothschild, Henley, and Wollaston Collection  .
