Genus OLIGURA

The genus Oligura resembles Tesia in many respects, but differs in two important particulars. In the first place Oligura has the bill comparatively slender and narrow, and in the second it has the sexes alike in plumage.

The only species of this genus found in India inhabits the higher ranges of the Himalayas and the hill-tracts of Assam.
