Parus niger purpurascens van Someren  

Parus niger purpurascens van Someren, 1921: 112 (Entebbe)   .

Now Parus guineensis Shelley, 1900   . See Snow, 1967c: 101, Harrap and Quinn, 1996: 321–324, Fry et al., 2000: 97–99, and Gosler and Clement, 2007: 731.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 682530 View Materials , adult male, collected at Entebbe , 00.05N, 32.29E (Times Atlas), Uganda, in February 1919. From the V.G. L. van Someren   Collection via the Rothschild Collection. GoogleMaps  

COMMENTS: In the original description, the type, a male collected in February 1919 at Entebbe, was said to be in the Rothschild Collection. The above is the only such specimen from van Someren’s Collection to come to AMNH with the Rothschld Collection   ; it bears a Rothschild type label and van Someren   has written ‘‘Type’’ on the reverse of his label.

Van Someren   had specimens from Entebbe, Bukedi, Mubendi, Soronko, and Elgon. There are two paratypes in AMNH: AMNH 682535, female, Soronko River, 10 April 1916, and AMNH 682537, male, Soronko, 5 April 1917. A third specimen is a probable paratype but is undated: AMNH 682538, male, Mubendi.
