(995) Gracupica leucocephala annamensis.

Wells's Myna.

Graculipica leucocephala annamensis Wells, Bull. B. O. U., xxxix. p. 76 (1919) (Nhatrang, Annam).

Vernacular names. None recorded.

Description. Differs only from the preceding bird in having the first, or bastard, primary always broadly tipped with black instead of pure white.

Colours of soft parts and Measurements as in the last bird; wing 118 to 130 mm.

Distribution. Annam and Northern Shan States. Kloss, perhaps rightly, does not admit this race, but in the material available for comparison in the British Museum the above characrer holds good, so I retain it for the present.

Nidification unknown.

Habits. Those of the genus.
