Genus TROPICOPERDIX

Two Burmese and Malayan forest-haunting Partridges are distinguished from true Arboricola by wanting the peculiar chain of superorbital ossicles, and by somewhat different plumage, much more mottled above, and with a patch of white downy feathers on each side behind the axilla.

There are two species, of which one is Burmese.
