Genus LIOPARUS

As pointed out by Oates this genus differs from Fulvetta in having the hairs over the nostrils longer and the rictal bristles much longer; a shorter, broader bill and, especially, by its much shorter hind claw. The genus contains but one very little-known species which Hodgson first called chrysotis and then later altered to chrysaeus. The former name, however, must stand.
