Genus CORYDON

Bill very large, much deeper, broader at the base and more hooked than that of Eurylaemus, the upper mandible more overhanging, and with the edge more convex near the gape; but the culmen is comparatively much shorter and more prominent. Rictal bristles replaced by plumules, which are situated in a nude area between the eye and bill. Wings and tail rounded; wing longer than tail. Tarsus distinctly scutellated in front. Sexes alike.

The plumage is mostly black. Only a single species is known.
