Genus PINAROCICHLA

This genus contains a single species very closely allied to Otocompsa but different in having the feathers of the back and rump with rigid and spinous shafts. If the fingers are passed along the back from the tail towards the head, the prickly character of the feathers can easily be felt.
The crest of Pinarocichla is shorter than it is in our Indian species of Otocompsa but not shorter than in the Siamese Otocompsa flaviventris johnsoni and very little shorter than in O.fl. minor.
