Subject: African collecting locality
> I hope someone can help us home in a collecting locality from the early
> century in East Africa. The specimen (an insect) was collected by the
> big game hunter Kalman Kittenberger (Katona). The label states:
> Mto-ja-Kifaru, Africa or.
> One reference indicates that the site is in Tanzania, but the best we've
> able to locate is a water hole (Mtoja) in Tanzania, and the Kifaru
> Mountains in Kenya. Kittenberger worked widely through British East Africa
> even into the Belgian Congo, collecting for the Hungarian National Museum
> Natural History as well as hunting and guiding.
> If anyone might be able to help, please contact me at Johnson.2 at osu.edu.
