Amaurospiza concolor grandior Griscom  

Amaurospiza concolor grandior Griscom, 1934: 414   (Peña Blanca, humid Caribbean forest of eastern Nicaragua).

Now Amaurospiza concolor concolor Cabanis, 1861   . See Hellmayr, 1938: 237, Paynter, 1970b: 151, and Dickinson, 2003: 794.

HOLOTYPE: AMNH 103811 View Materials , adult male, collected at Peñas Blancas (5 Peña Blanca), Jinotega, Nicaragua, on 5 June 1929, b y William B. Richardson.  

COMMENTS: Griscom cited the AMNH number of the holotype in the original description, noting that his type series comprised three males and one female from Peñas Blancas and Rio Tuma and ‘‘the adult male in the British Museum from Paraiso , Canal Zone.’’ The three paratypes in AMNH are: Rio Tuma, AMNH 102649 View Materials , 102650 View Materials , adult males, both collected on 29 November 1907   ; and Peñas Blancas , AMNH 103812 View Materials , female, 6 June 1929   .

Griscom (1934: 414) noted that the type locality was in the humid, Caribbean forest of eastern Nicaraugua. However, Howell (in Martínez-Sánchez and Will, 2010: 99) found that it was in the State of Jinotega, in the central highland region (see maps on pp. xii and xiii in that publication). It is not the Peñas Blancas on the border with Costa Rica in the far west.
