Subfamily PHABINAE

This is a very ill-defined group, containing a number of African, Indian, and Australian Doves, agreeing in anatomy with Caloenas, and having like it 12 tail-feathers, but distinguished by the restriction of the feathers with a metallic lustre to the mantle, and by the absence of neck-hackles.
