Genus CALLENE

The genus Callene differs from Notodela in having a very much longer tail, and one the feathers of which are greatly graduated and without any white pattern. The tarsus is extremely long. Little is recorded of the habits of the sole Indian member of the genus, which, however, are not likely to differ materially from those of Notodela.
