Hyphantornis lineolatus "Sharp, M.S."

Collected at Sheik Hassain, Somaliland- specimen in British Museum.  Called a Striped Masked Weaver bird in the Annual Report of the New York Zoological Society, volume 13.

I cannot find what it has become. Because my primary interest is Somaliland, I would really appreciate knowing.  IN case anyone is curious: the names I ask about come from a search on GBIF for chordates attributed to Somalia because specimens collected in Somaliland, or the old British Somaliland, are now credited to Somalia.
