Estrilda jamesoni benguellensis Delacour   Estrilda jamesoni kabisombo Traylor

Lagonosticta rhodopareia ansorgei Neumann, 1908c: 58   (Kabisombo River near Quillengues, Benguella).

Now Lagonosticta rhodopareia ansorgei Neumann, 1908   . See Hartert, 1919a: 148; Mayr et al., 1968: 330–331; Dean, 2000: 326; Dickinson, 2003: 729; Fry and Keith, 2004: 373–375; and Payne, 2010: 342–343.

LECTOTYPE: AMNH 728878 View Materials , male, collected on the Cabissombo (5 Kabisombo) River , 13.51S, 14.09E, near Quilengues (5 Quillengues), 14.13S, 14.11E ( Dean, 2000: 370, 384), Huíla, Angola, on 1 February 1905, by W.J. Ansorge (no. 364). From the Rothschild Collection. GoogleMaps  

COMMENTS: Neumann noted in the original description that the type with the above data was in the Rothschild Collection. However, there were two such specimens; Hartert (1919a: 148) cited Ansorge’s unique specimen number 364 for the type, thereby designating it the lectotype. Neumann gave the range of his new form as extending from Pungo Andongo to South Benguella. This would include all of the Ansorge specimens of this form that came to AMNH with the Rothschild Collection. Paralectotypes in AMNH, all collected by Ansorge, are: Cabissombo River, AMNH 728879 View Materials , male, 1 February 1905   ; Fort Quilengues , AMNH 728880 View Materials , male, 11 January 1905   ; Kimaholo River, AMNH 728881 View Materials , female, 29 January 1905   ; Cabeca de Landroes , AMNH 728882 View Materials , male, 29 July 1904   ; Elandswater , AMNH 728883–728889 View Materials , five males, two females, 24– 27 July 1904   ; Bongo River, AMNH 728890 View Materials , female, 5 August 1904   ; Pungo Andongo , AMNH 728891 View Materials , unsexed, 19 June 1903. Of these, I did not find AMNH 728886 in the collection   .

Delacour (1943: 84) provided the replacement name Estrilda jamesoni benguellensis   for Lagonosticta rhodopareia ansorgei Neumann, 1908   , preoccupied by Pytelia ansorgei Hartert, 1899   , if Lagonosticta   is merged with Estrilda   . Traylor (1961: 164) then provided the replacement name Estrilda jamesoni kabisombo   for Estrilda jamesoni benguellensis Delacour, 1943   , preoccupied by Estrilda paludicola benguellensis Neumann, 1908   . Both replacement names share the same type as L. r. ansorgei Neumann, 1908   .
