Spermophila schistacea Lawrence  

Spermophila schistacea Lawrence, 1862: 474   ( New Granada).

Now Sporophila schistacea schistacea ( Lawrence, 1862)   . See Hellmayr, 1938: 174–175, Wetmore et al., 1984: 563–564; and Dickinson, 2003: 791– 792.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 41269 View Materials , adult male, collected near Lion Hill, ca. 09.13N, 79.54W ( Siegel and Olson, 2008), Panama (5 New Granada), in 1862, by James McLeannan. From the George N. Lawrence   Collection. GoogleMaps  

COMMENTS: Apparently, Lawrence   had the single specimen. He ( Lawrence   , 1862: 474) first proposed the name for no. 341 of his list, a specimen that he questionably identified with Spermophila cinerea Lafresnaye   but listed the differences between no. 341 and that species. Lawrence   (1863: 10) referred to his earlier description, and having satisfied himself that it was distinct, accepted the name.

Lion Hill ( Wetmore et al., 1984: 563–564) is the usually accepted type locality, as McLeannan was the station master at the Lion Hill station of the Panama railway that ran across the Isthmus. Most of his collecting was done on the Atlantic side.
