Genus HYPACANTHIS

The genus Hypacanthis contains one species of Finch which is closely allied to the Common Greenfinch of Europe, but has a much more slender bill and a darker style of coloration, the upper plumage being a dark brown. The bill is of much the same shape as that of Acanthis (and is not therefore figured), but considerably deeper and broader.
