Oryzoborus angolensis brevirostris Berlepsch  

Oryzoborus angolensis brevirostris Berlepsch, 1908: 119 (Cayenne)   .

Now Oryzoborus angolensis angolensis (Linnaeus, 1766)   . See Hartert, 1919: 154, Hellmayr, 1938: 246–247, Olson, 1981a, Dickinson, 2003: 793, and Ridgely and Tudor, 2009: 634.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 514185 View Materials , adult male, collected at Cayenne , French Guiana, on 22 November 1902, by George K. Cherrie and Benjamin T. Gault. From the Rothschild Collection.  

COMMENTS: In the original description, Berlepsch designated as type the male specimen collected at Cayenne on 22 November 1902, and bearing Cherrie’s number 862. Unfortunately, Cherrie’s number is blotted, but doesn’t appear to have been 862. However, the specimen is the only one collected on 22 November 1902 and is the holotype. It bears a Rothschild type label on which Hartert has written ‘‘862,’’ but when this was listed by Hartert (1919: 154) in his list of types in the Rothschild Collection, it was misprinted ‘‘882,’’ as was the page number (not 115) on which Berlepsch’s description appeared.

In the original description, Berlepsch also listed the ten specimens he examined, giving the Cherrie field numbers. Seven of the nine paratypes came to AMNH: Cayenne, AMNH 514186 View Materials (Cherrie no. 948), male, 27 November   ; AMNH 514187 View Materials (885), male, 24 November   ; Roche-Marie, AMNH 514188 View Materials (537), male, 5 November   ; AMNH 514189 View Materials (675), male, 10 November   ; AMNH 514190 View Materials (706), immature male, 11 November   ; AMNH 514191 View Materials (720), male, 12 November   ; and AMNH 514192 View Materials (749), female, 13 November, all collected in 1902. Of these, I was unable to find AMNH 514186 in the collection. Cherrie’s numbers of the paratypes that did not come to AMNH are 632 and 795   .

Hellmayr (1938: 247) synonymized brevirostris with O. a. torridus. Olson (1981a) synonymized torridus with nominate angolensis   , and most recent authors have followed him; his merging the genus Oryzoborus   with Sporophila   has not been widely followed, but see Lijtmaer et al. (2004). Ridgely and Tudor (2009: 634) considered O. angolensis   monotypic.
