Genus NEORNIS

The genus Neornis, as restricted, contains but one species, resembling Horornis in structure and Acanthopneuste in Coloration. From the latter it may be recognized by its tail of ten feathers, and from the former by the hairs overhanging the nostrils.

Neornis inhabits bushes and grass, and is, generally speaking, a mountain-bird. Like the majority of the Horornis-group, it lays deep red eggs.
