Genus PROPYRRHULA

The genus Propyrrhula connects Loxia and Haematospiza with the large group of the Rose-Pinches. It has much the same bill as Haematospiza but a longer tail, and the plumage of the male is less brilliant, being much mixed with green above and the abdomen being brown. The female of Propyrrhula, however, is not very unlike the female of Haematospiza.
