(619) Cochoa rothschildi, sp. nov.
The White-cheeked Green Thrush.
Description. Differs from the Green Thrush in having the whole of the lower parts almost entirely orange-brown from the breast to the under tail-coverts. The sides of the head, ear-coverts and cheeks are white, produced in a demi-collar on to the sides of the neck.
Colours of soft parts and Measurements as in Cochoa viridis.
Distribution. Of the two specimens known, one was taken in Sikkim and the other at Matchi in Manipur.
Lord Rothschild has examined the British Museum series with me as well as his own series at Tring, and we can find no trace of connection between the two forms, which must therefore rank as species.
Nidification and Habits not recorded.
