Genus CHOTORHEA

To this genus belong six Malay Barbets distinguished as a rule by brilliant Coloration about the head and by having a black, somewhat elongate, but not high bill, the length of which is more than twice the height. The culmen is considerably curved and much exceeds the tarsus in length. The wing is rounded. Nostrils exposed. A single species extends into Tenasserim. This has been included by Shelley in Cyanops, but I agree with Salvadori and Oates in referring it to the present genus.
