Genus CHRYSOPHLEGMA

Bill more curved than in Gecinus; culmen blunt, nasal ridge almost obsolete. A moderately long nuchal crest. The Coloration above is similar to that of Gecinus, green being the prevailing tint, the crest is yellow and the quills barred with rufous. Below, except on the throat, the colour is nearly uniform. The sexes are distinguished by difference of colour in the chin and malar region, not on the crown. This genus ranges from the Himalayas to Borneo and Java.
