This tenth part of "Type specimens of birds in the American Museum of Natural History" includes taxa in the family Emberizidae in volume 13 of Peters' Check-list of birds of the world (Paynter, 1970a). The original description of each taxon has been consulted and the currently accepted name of the taxon has been listed with reference to Dickinson (2003). In a few cases, more recent studies have been taken into account. Modern names and coordinates of type localities are given when possible and comments on taxonomic history are provided. In this part, 338 names are treated; types of 19 of these are not in AMNH or were not found. This part of the type list, as well as all previous parts, are searchable and available for download from the AMNH Library website: http://digitallibrary.amnh.org/dspace/.
