Ophrysia Bonap., Comp. Bend., xliii, p. 414 (1856).
Type, Rollulus superciliosus Gray.
This genus contains one species about which very little is as yet known, but which is confined to the neighbourhood of Mussoorie and Naini Tal in the North-West Himalayas.
The tail is composed of ten feathers, well rounded and nearly as long as the wing; the wing is short, the first primary shorter than the tenth and the fifth or sixth longest- the bill is short and stout- the tarsus short but strong; the plumage is long, lax and lanceolate, being in these respects similar to Ithaginis.
The sexes are dissimilar.
