Genus GYMNORIS

Gymnoris Hodgson in Gray's Zool. Misc., p. 84 (1844). Type, Gymnoris flavicollis= xanthocollis Burton.

The genus Gymnoris is somewhat intermediate between the true Finches and the Sparrows but is nearer the latter. It differs, however, in its more slender, well-curved bill and in not having a colour-pattern on the wings. Like the true Sparrows it has an Autumnal moult and the young are less downy than those of the true Finches.
