Macropygia unchall.

Macropygia unchall.

Columba unchall Wagler, Syst, Av., Columba, sp. 38 (1827).

Type-locality: Java.

Wagler's description of unchall is perfectly satisfactory and, as it antedates leptogrammica Temm. 1835, must be used. This form differs from our Indian bird in its much richer redder plumage and in the narrower black barring on the upper parts.
