926. Phasianus hagenbecki

926. SUBSP. PHASIANUS HAGENBECKI.
Phasianus hagenbecki, Rothschild, Bull. B. O. Club, xii. p. 20 (1901).
Male ad. (Kobdo Valley, N. W. Mongolia). Is nearest allied to the Mongolian form of Ph. torquatus, but the crown and occiput art browner, the upper parts paler and less rufous, the rump rather bluer and boldly barred with black, the ground-colour of the tail paler ; flanks paler, and with fewer and smaller purplish black markings. Culmen 1.3, wing 9.1, tail 17.2, tarsus 2.2 inch.
Hab. Mongolia.
I find no record of the habits and nidification of this Pheasant, which probably do not differ from those of P. torquatus.
