Genus NOTODELA

The genus Notodela contains one species, which is largely distributed from Nepal to Tenasserim. The sexes are very different, the male being blue and the female rufous, but both sexes have a large amount of white on the tail, which is considerably longer than twice the tarsus.

The White-tailed Blue Robin frequents the ground, flying up into trees when disturbed, and expanding and closing its tail frequently. It does not appear to be shy, and it is said to be very silent.
