Emberiza yunnanensis Sharpe, Bull. B. O. C.. xiii, p. 12 (1902) (Talifu, Yunnan).

Vernacular names. None recorded.

Description. Similar to the Chinese Meadow-Bunting but darker and more richly coloured at all seasons.

Colours of soft parts. Iris brown; bill above grey to leaden-black, lower mandible paler; feet light brown (Forrest).

Measurements. Wing 77 to 86 mm.

Distribution. Yunnan, Shan States and ? Yangtse Valley.

Nidification. A nest with eggs taken by Harington at 10,000 feet in the Shan States, at that time thought by him to be stracheyi, must have been those of this race. Nothing was recorded by him about them and I cannot trace them in his collection.
