Genus HORIZILLAS

The genus Horizillas- is remarkable for its lengthened wings and, in consequence, its comparatively short tail; the plumage is soft and silky. The two Indian species of the genus appear to be more arboreal than any of the preceding genera and to have somewhat the deportment of Bulbuls. The rictal bristles are very conspicuous on account of their length and the bill is short and straight. The legs and feet are weak for Timaliine birds. The name Malacopterum Eyton is preoccupied as is Setaria Blyth *.
