38. Cinclus saturatus

38. SUBSP. CINCLUS SATURATUS.
Cinclus saturatus. Dresser ix. p. 20 (1895). C. sordidus, (nec. Gould), Tacz. F. O. Sib., O. p. 214.
Ad. (Baikal District). Differs from C. baicalensis in having the white on the throat and breast obscured by brown so that the separts are whity- brown and not white. Culmen 1.2 wing 3.7, tail 2.35, tarsus 1.12 inch.
Hab. Irkutsk to the Baikal district, to S.W. Kansu and N, Tibet. This is evidently the Cinclus sordidus of Russian authors, for the type was sent to me from Russia, as belonging to that species, from which, however, it differs considerably.
