(1000) Aethiopsar fuscus torquatus Davison.
THE MALAY JUNGLE MYNA.
Aethiopsar fuscus torquatus, Fauna B. I., Birds, 2nd ed. vol. iii, p. 58.
In the ‘Fauna’ I restricted the breeding range of this race of Jungle Myna to South of the latitude of Rangoon. This was, of course, quite an arbitrary line, and with fresh breeding material for examination the range may have to be extended North.
In its breeding habits it diflers in no way from the preceding subspecies, but the only eggs I have, referable beyond doubt to the present one, are two clutches taken by J. C. Hopwood from nests in hollow trees in Tavoy, South Tenasserim. The two clutches are of five and four eggs, and these nine average 28.5 x 20.7 mm.: maxima 32.0 x 21.0 mm. ; minima 26.1 x 20.4 mm.
They were taken on the 19th and 30th April.
