Blyth, J. A. S. B., xvi, p. 136 (1847). Type, C. frontalis.

The genus Callene differs from Notodela in having a very much longer tail, of which the feathers are greatly graduated and without any white pattern. The tarsus also is much longer than in Notodela. It is represented in India by one species, of which very little is known.
