639. Dendrocopus danfordi

639. SUBSP. DENDROCOPUS DANFORDI.
Dendroeopus danfordi (Hargitt), Ibis, 1883, p. 172 ; id. Cat. B. Br. Mus. xviii. p. 256 ; Dresser, ix. p. 259, pl. 689, fig. 2.
ad. (Asia Minor). Resembles D. minor, except that it has the branch from the black malar stripe passing quite round the posterior part of the ear-coverts, and joined to the occiput, and the under parts are darker and rather more distinctly barred.
Hab. Asia Minor and the Northern Caucasus.
I have no information respecting the habits of this species, but it doubtless does not differ appreciably from D. minor therein. Its eggs closely resemble those of D. minor.
