|Böhm's Bee-eater (Merops boehmi)
French: Guêpier de Böhm German: Böhmspint Spanish: Abejaruco de Boehm
Taxonomy: Merops (Melittophagus) boehmi Reichenow, 1882, Bumi, Tanzania.
Has sometimes been placed together with M. albicollis in genus Aerops, as both species combine long outer primary with some characters of small Melittophagus group (see M. bullockoides) and with some features of large Merops species. A somewhat enigmatic species, closeness to M. albicollis considered unlikely and supposed affiliation with M. orientalis doubtful. Monotypic.
SE DRCongo, SW Tanzania and N & C Zambia, with disjunct population in E Tanzania and C & S Malawi and adjacent Mozambique.
