Ad. (Japan). General plumage blackish brown or deep chocolate brown much darker than C. asiaticus ; edge of the eyelid white ; abdomen blackish brown ; wings and tail blackish, externally margined with chocolate brown ; bill blackish-horn ; legs plumbeous in front ; dusky behind ; iris hazel. Culmen 1.0, wing 4.15, tail 2.65, tarsus 1.35 inch. The young bird has the sides of the bead and neck, and the upper parts generally blackish brown with sub-terminal rufous margins ; wings and coverts with white or pale rufous margins ; tail black narrowly tipped with white ; under parts blackish brown, the feathers fringed with ashy.
Hab. Eastern Siberia, Kamchatka, Corea, Japan, and the greater part of China.
In general habits it is said not to differ from its congeners, and like them frequents running streams, chiefly in the moun¬tains. I do not find any description of its nest, but its eggs are similar to those of the European Dipper.
