Vernacular names. None recorded.

Description. Differs from the last bird in having the crown less ferruginous, more brown; the stripes on the throat and breast finer and fewer ; the upper parts a less pure olive-green.

Colours of soft parts and Measurements as in the last.

Distribution. Siam and Eastern Central Burma.

Nidification. Eggs obtained by Messrs. W. J. F. Williamson and E. G. Herbert near Bangkok in May and June measure about 16.9 x 13.0 mm. The nest seems to be almost invariably placed in Pine-apple plants.
