Ken Parkes and I are examining geographic variation in the Slender-billed
Greenbul, Andropadus gracilirostris (sometimes put in the genus Pycnonotus, or
Stelgidillas, or Chlorocichla).  We are in need of specimens from Nigeria and
the Mount Cameroon area and have been unable to find any.  We have examined
skins from the American Museum, Field Museum, Los Angeles County Museum, and
U.S. National Museum.

Does anyone know of a bird collection in the US from Nigeria and/or Mount
Cameroon that we have missed?  Any help in finding specimens to borrow would be
most appreciated.
