This genus differs from Suthora in having the tail less graduated and much shorter, not more than three-fourths the length of the wing ; the bill is larger and much deeper in proportion; the wing is still more rounded, the 4th to the 7th being subequal. It contains but one species, Neosuthora davidiana, of .which a subspecies, N. d. thompsoni, comes within our limits.
