919. Horeites brunnifrons umbratieus

(919) Horeites brunnifrons umbraticus Stuart Baker.
THE YUNNAN RUFOUS-CAPPED BUSH-WARBLER.
Horeites brunnifrons umbraticus, Fauna B. I., Birds, 2nd ed. vol. ii, p. 513.
This race has only been recorded from Yunnan, but first Harington and then Major T. E. Tankard obtained nests of a Horeites in the Bhamo Hills and Shan States which will assuredly prove to be of this geographical race.
The only clutch of eggs, one of three, known to me was taken on the 19th April, and was purchased at the sale of the Tankard collection, but the diary contains no details. The eggs are obviously correct and in colour are intermediate between my two darkest clutches of H. b. brunnifrons, resembling them also exactly in texture and surface.
They measure 18.0 x 14.1, 18.0 x 14.1 and 18.2 x 14.2 mm.
