Lagonosticta graueri Rothschild   Estrilda cinereovinacea rudolfi Hartert

Lagonosticta graueri Rothschild, 1909: 102   (Forest near Baraka, north-west of Lake Tanganyika, 1900 metres).

Estrilda cinereovinacea rudolfi Hartert, 1919a: 141   .

Now Euschistospiza cinereovinacea graueri ( Rothschild, 1909)   . See Chapin, 1954b: 479; Mayr et al., 1968: 324; Dickinson, 2003: 728; Fry and Keith, 2004: 340–341; and Payne, 2010: 333.

LECTOTYPE: AMNH 451288 View Materials , adult male, collected in deep forest near Baraka, 1900 m, 04.09S, 29.05E (Times atlas), northwest of Lake Tanganika , Congo (Kinshasa) (5 Congo Free State, as on label), on 11 November 1908, by Rudolf Grauer (no. 3767). From the Rothschild Collection. GoogleMaps  

COMMENTS: Rothschild did not designate a type in the original description, describing only the male but saying that Grauer had collected a small series. Hartert (1919a: 141) listed Grauer specimen no. 3767 as the type, thereby designating it the lectotype of graueri   , but at the same time, because he included both Lagonosticta graueri Rothschild, 1909   , and Estrilda atricapilla graueri Neumann, 1908   , in the genus Estrilda   , where they are homonyms, he provided the new name Estrilda cinereovinacea rudolfi   for Lagonosticta graueri   . Because the two former names are not now included in the genus Estrilda   , Rothschild’s name can be used for Euschistospiza cinereovinacea graueri   , of which Hartert’s rudolfi now becomes an objective synonym; they share the same type.

Rothschild’s paralectotypes are: Near Baraka, 1900 m., AMNH 451289–451300 View Materials , five males, seven females, 26 October–30 November 1908   ; west of Lake Tanganika , AMNH 451301 View Materials , 451302 View Materials , males, 7 and 30 July 1908, all collected by Rudolf Grauer. I did not find AMNH 451291 View Materials and 451299 in the collection and they were perhaps exchanged without the catalog having been marked   .
