Genus ANTHROPOIDES

Genus ANTHROPOIDES.

Anthropoides Vieill., Analyse, p. 59 (1816).

Type by mon., Ardea virgo Linn.

In this genus the head is feathered throughout and there are long white plumes springing from behind the ear-coverts; the feathers of the lower neck are long and lanceolate, whilst the inner secondaries are much lengthened but not disintegrated as in Grus. The bill and legs are shorter in proportion than they are in that genus.
