Genus LYNCORNIS

This genus is distinguished from Caprimulgus by the want of rictal bristles and the presence of ear-tufts or aigrettes, consisting of a few elongate feathers just above and behind the ear-coverts. Sexes alike. About six species are known, ranging from Southern India to New Guinea, but only one occurs within our area.
