Differs from L. fuscata, in having a smaller bill, compressed laterally at the base ; first primary nearly half the length of the second Which equals the 8th. or is intermediate between the 8th and 9th ; upper mandible horn- brown, paler on the edges, lower mandible yellowish ; legs dark horn- brown.
This species is only known by two specimens obtained by Dr. Dybowski at Tigil in Kamchatka neither of which I have seen, and take the description from Mr. Pleske.
