Myristicivora Reichenb., Av. Syst. Nat., p. 26 (1852).
Type, Columba bicolor Scop.
The genus Myristicivora contains certain Pigeons distinguished by their peculiar creamy-white and black coloration, whilst they also differ from those of the genus Muscadivora in having much shorter tails. There is no naked skin round the eye and the lores are fully feathered. In various forms this genus, of one species, ranges throughout the Indo-Malayan region to New Guinea and Australia.
