Genus SIBIA

The genus Sibia contains but one species, which is remarkable for the extraordinary Length of its tail. This is twice the Length of the wing, and greatly graduated.

The bill is shorter than the head, curved down and slender, and the nostrils are covered by a large membrane. The rictal bristles are moderate in Length. The bill is very similar to that of Lioptila, figured below.
