Genus CERASOPHILA

This genus was created by Bingham for the reception of a very remarkable Bulbul, probably nearest to the genus Microscelis (Hypsipetes auct.). Like that genus the tarsi are short and non-scutellate and the tail is rather long and forked. The culmen is more curved than in Microscelis but it differs principally from that genus in having a bare unfeathered patch of skin round the eye. The under tail-coverts are brightly coloured as in Molpastes and Otocompsa.
