Genus MALACOCINCLA

The genus Malacocincla differs from all the other genera of this subfamily with stout straight bills in having the nostrils oval and exposed, with no protecting membrane. The rictal bristles are well developed but there are no hairs overhanging the nostrils. The tail is shorter than the wing. The name Turdinus being preoccupied, the above takes its place.
