Genus CUTIA

The genus Cutia contains but one species, a very handsome bird remarkable for the great development of the upper tail-coverts, which reach nearly to the tip of the tail. In Cutia the bill is rather slender, curved, notched and pointed and slightly longer than half the length of the head; the rictal bristles are very short; the nostrils longitudinal and covered by a membrane and the frontal bristles are short and firm. The tail is about two-thirds the length of the wing and slightly rounded.
