Genus STOPAROLA

The genus Stoparola is hardly worthy of separation from Cyornis. All the members of the genus, however, are green or blue throughout in both sexes, and the type of the genus has a small and very depressed bill which, when viewed from above, forms an equilateral triangle.

Two members of the genus are sedentary and confined to small areas. The third is spread over the Empire and is migratory to a greater or less extent. They are typical Flycatchers in habits.
