Vidua paradisea [sic] orientalis
Keren, Anseba, Eritrea.
See V. paradisaea. Present species has sometimes been treated as conspecific with V. paradisaea alone, and specimens in tattered plumage from E Sudan and Eritrea suggest interbreeding between the two; molecular data#R, however, indicate that it is sister to V. interjecta. In Sudan, proposed races kudugliensis (described from Kadugli, in S Kordofan) and nilotica (from c. 16 km above Abu Zor, in Blue Nile) are synonyms of nominate. Two subspecies recognized.
