411. Chrysomitris corsicana

411. SUBSP. CHRYSOMITRIS CORSICANA.
Chrysomitris corsicana, Koenig, Orn. Monatsber. vii. p. 120 (1899) ; C. citrinella, Dresser, p. 536, pl. 167 (nec. Linn.)
Male ad. (Corsica). Differs from C. citrinella in having the back pale brown (not green) striped with dark brown, the rump greener, and the under parts yellow.
Hab. Corsica.
This form which I described as the winter dress of C. citrinella is, as I subsequently ascertained, fairly separable from that species. Dr. Koenig met with it in April in Corsica, but I find no account of its habits or nidification which probably do not differ from those of C. citrinella.
