Genus PROPYRRHULA

Propyrrhula Hodgs., J. A. S. B., xiii, p. 1952 (1844). Type, P. subhimachala Hodgs.

This genus again forms a connecting link between the preceding two and the true Rose-Finches. It has the same bill as Haematospiza and the female is more or less suffused with green, but the tail is longer and the plumage of the male is very close to that of Carpodacus and Propasser.
