Genus CHELIDORHYNX

Chelidorhynx Hodgs., P. Z. S., 1845, p. 32. Type, C. hypoxanthum.

The genus Chelidorhynx contains only one species of Flycatcher remarkable for the shape of its bill, which, like that of Stoparola, when viewed from above, forms a perfect equilateral triangle; it is smaller, however, both actually and in proportion to the size of the bird. The rictal bristles are very numerous and long; the tail is long and well rounded with the shafts thickened and white. The sexes are practically alike.
