This is only distinguished from A. rufigularis by having the chin and throat entirely black, followed by an unspotted ferruginous-red gorget without any black lower border. In all other respects this species is identical with the last, of which it is merely a race.

Distribution. Tho Arrakan hills between Arrakan and Pegu, ranging as far north as Eastern Manipur, where Hume found this bird common, and to North Cachar and the Naga hills, whence it" was obtained by Godwin-Austen.
