Genus CHELIDORHYNX

The genus Chelidorhynx contains only one species of Flycatcher remarkable for the shape of its bill, which is short and pointed, and when viewed from above forms a perfect equilateral triangle.

The rictal bristles are extremely numerous and long. The tail is of about the same length as the wing, rounded, and with the shafts thickened and white. The sexes are quite alike.
