The only species of this genus is distinguished by its very full crest of loose-textured, hair-like feathers. This crest covers the crown ; the feathers of the lores are similar and equally long, and are directed upwards and forwards. Bill large, curved, compressed ; casque as in Anorrhinus, but small. Tail long, white, middle pair of feathers considerably exceeding the others.
