587. Anthipes olivaceus

587. Anthipes olivaceus.

Hume's Flycatcher.

Cyornis olivacea, Hume, S. F. v, p. 338 (1877); Hume & Dav. S. F. vi, p. 229; Hume, Cat. no. 307 ter. Siphia olivacea (Hume), Sharpe, Cat. B. M. iv, p. 457; Oates, B. B. i, p. 292.

Coloration. Upper plumage greyish brown, tinged with fulvous on the back and rump; lores and the sides of the head ashy, the shafts of the ear-coverts whitish ; lower plumage whitish, the breast and the sides of the body suffused with ochraceous ; tail reddish brown edged with ferruginous; wing-coverts and quills brown edged with rufous-brown.

Bill black in the male, brown in the female ; iris brown ; legs, feet, and claws pinkish white (Hume &c Davison).

Length 5.8 ; tail 2.5 ; wing 3; tarsus .75; bill from gape .8.

The young bird, which Hume identified with some doubt with Hemichelidon ferruginea (S. F. vi, p. 227), is in my opinion the young of the present species. It resembles very closely the young of Cyornis rubeculoides at the same age.

Distribution. The extreme southern part of Tenasserim at Bankasun and Malawun. This species also occurs in Java and Borneo. It appears to be a resident in Tenasserim, Hume's specimens having been obtained in March, June, and December.
