Genus NOTODELA

Less., Compl. Buff., viii, p. 4:33 (1837). Type, N. albifrons (=diana).

The genus Notodela contains one species which is widely distributed from the Simla Hills 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 hill is fairly stout, the rictal bristles ample. The tarsus is strong and well adapted both for perching and for ground work, though not very long.
