Genus DENDROTRERON.

Dendrotreron Hodgs. in Gray's Zool. Misc., p. 85 (1844).

Type, Columba hodgsonii Vigors.

This genus can at once be separated from all others of the Subfamily by its curious acuminate and rather lengthened feathers of the neck. The feet are intermediate between those of the Rock-Pigeons and Wood-Pigeons, whilst the tarsi are slightly feathered. The genus contains two species, one African and one Indian.
