Genus ALOPHOIXUS

The bird for which I propose the above generic designation has hitherto been placed with Criniger. It differs from that genus in entirely wanting a crest, a character of sufficient importance, in my estimation, to warrant its separation from Criniger, in which genus the crest is remarkably long and conspicuous.
