1000. Aethiopsar fuscus torquatus

(1000) AEthiopsar fuscus torquatus.

The Malax Jungle Myna.

Acridotheres torquatus Davison, Ibis, 1892, p. 102 (Pahang).

Vernacular names. Tau Zayet (Burmese).

Description. Differs from AE. f. fuscus only in being a trifle smaller, the wing measuring from 112 to 121 mm., generally under 119 mm.

Distribution. Peninsular Siam and Burma and Malay States.

Davison's original description of this bird was taken from an abnormal specimen, but the name, though so unsuitable, must unfortunately be used.

Nidification. Similar to that of the preceding bird. Messrs. Oates, J. M. D. Mackenzie and J C Hopwood took eggs from early April to the end of July in Tenasserim. The eggs cannot be distinguished from that of the preceding bird.

Habits similar to those of AE. f. fuscus.
