Coloeus monedula cirtensis Rothschild and Hartert 

Coloeus monedula cirtensis Rothschild and Hartert, 1912a: 471  (Constantine).

Now Corvus monedula cirtensis ( Rothschild and Hartert, 1912)  . See Hartert, 1919: 127; Vaurie, 1959: 163–165; Fry et al., 2000: 555–556; Dickinson, 2003: 511; and dos Anjos, 2009: 617.

LECTOTYPE: AMNH 674206View Materials, sex?, collected at Constantine, 36.22N, 06.40E (TimesGoogleMaps 

Atlas  ), Algeria, on 4 December 1911, by Paul Dechabert. From the Rothschild Collection.

COMMENTS: Rothschild and Hartert (1912a: 471) said that Dechabert had sent 10 specimens of this form from Constantine. The specimens are poorly made and have no original label, only a Rothschild Museum label with information written by Hartert, except for the type, which has only a Rothschild type label. In the original description, the specimen designated as the type was said to have been collected on 4 December 1911. This does not distinguish between two specimens dated 4 December 1911, all others having the date ‘‘winter, 1911.’’ Hartert (1919: 127) does not further distinguish between these two specimens. AMNH 675206 was cataloged as the type at AMNH and that status has not been questioned. In order to verify the authors’ intent and prevent future confusion with regard to the type, I hereby designate AMNH 675206 the lectotype of Coloeus monedula cirtensis  . The paralectotypes are: Constantine, AMNH 674207–674215.

Rothschild and Hartert (1912a: 472) noted that the form was ‘‘named after its locality, the town of Constantine, the Cirta of the Romans.’’
