(670) Anthipes monileger sub-monileger.

Hume's White-gorgeted Flycatcher.

Anthipes submoniliger Hume, S. P., v., p. 105 (1877) (Muleyet Mt.); Blanf. & Oates, ii, p. 33.

Vernacular names. None recorded.

Description. Similar to the preceding bird but paler both above and below and either entirely wanting the black round the white throat or having this less strongly marked. The forehead, lores and short supercilia are rich golden-rufous.

Colours of soft parts and Measurements as in A. m. monileger but the bill larger and longer, 11 to 12 mm.

Distribution. Peninsular Burma and Siam. A fine series collected by Mr. E. Gr. Herbert in Southern Siam have the rufous of the head very rich, somewhat approaching A. m. malayana of the 8. Malay Peninsula in this respect.

Nidification. Not recorded.

Habits. Hume's White-gorgeted Flycatcher is found from the level of the plains up to some 4,000 feet and is not migratory. Apparently it is found most often in light open forest but at other times in the deepest and most humid forests.
