Genus ALOPHOIXUS

This genus was created by Oates for a species previously placed in the genus Criniger. It differs from that genus in having no crest and from Tricholestes in not having such long back-hairs. Bill, wings and tail are very similar to those of Criniger.
There is but one species at present referred to this genus.
