Iole holti binghami Hartert, Vog. Pal., ix, p. 558 (1902) (Loi-San-Pa, S. Shan States).

Vernacular names. None recorded.

Description. This form differs from the Himalayan and Davison's Brown-eared Bulbuls in having the upper plumage brown, not green. It is nearest to H. m. holti, from Southern China, in its abdomen being paler and whitish rather than rusty rufous and in its paler upper parts.

Measurements. " Wing 108 mm.; tail 115 mm." (Hartert).

Distribution. South Shan States.

Nidification and Habits. Nothing recorded.

"Within a comparatively small area we have many forms of this. Bulbul— H. m. holti from S. China, H. m. similis Rothschild from Yunnan, H. m. tickelli from the Karen Hills, H. m. macclellandi from the Chin and Kachin Hills. Apparently these are all good forms. From Annam, Messrs. Robinson and Kloss describe yet another form as H. tickelli griseiventer (Ibis, 1919, p. 508).
