Lophophanes cristatus brunnescens Pražák 

L[ophophanes] c[ristatus] brunnescens  Pražák, 1897 e: 347, footnote.

NOW. Parus cristatus mitratus C.L. Brehm, 1831  . See Hellmayr (1903: 45) and Hartert (1905: 364). Type series. Same as for Parus rufescens Brehm, 1855  .

Remarks. Pražák (1897 e: 347, footnote) created L. c. brunnescens  as a new replacement name for Parus rufescens Brehm (1855: 243)  , because he found it preoccupied by Parus rufescens Townsend (1837: 190)  . By definition, P. brunnescens Pražák  has the same type series and type locality as P. rufescens Brehm  (Art. 72.7 and Art. 76 of the Code). The type series remains undisclosed, because Brehm (1855: 467) created his rufescens  without reference to a specimen and Hartert (1918) and LeCroy (2010) found no relevant specimens in the Brehm Collection (now in the AMNH). The type locality was given as “Mitteldeutschland” (Central Germany) by Brehm (1855: 243).
