Genus LIOTHRIX

The genus Liothrix contains one remarkable hill-bird which is characterized by a slightly forked tail, the feathers of which are bent outwards. The bill is about half the Length of the head, stout, and with the culmen curved. It resembles very closely the bill of Mesia figured below (p. 244). The tail is quite square at the tip, and the upper tail-coverts are long.
