Genus SPORAEGINTHUS

The genus Sporaeginthus contains two Indian species of Munia, in which the males are red and the females brown, and both sexes are much spotted with white on various parts of the plumage. This genus differs from the last not only in the general coloration of the plumage but also in the shape of the tail, which in Sporaeginthus is much more rounded.
