Genus LIOPICUS

This genus closely resembles Dendrocopus, but has a more rounded wing, the primaries exceeding the secondaries by less than the length of the culmen. A small occipital crest is present. The upper plumage is black, spotted not barred with white.

Only one species is known, and this is peculiar, or nearly so, to the Indian area.
