On two visits to sw-ish Morocco (Sous valley and the mountains/desert to the E), I remember being surprised (nay amazed) to find ssp algeriensis, despite the name's clear meaning, applying to the birds down towards the coast, while the inland (desert) birds were ssp elegans (not that they aren't elegant of course).
