Genus ADELURA

The sole member of this genus is frequently associated with the true Redstarts, but the total absence of the chestnut in the tail, which forms so conspicuous a feature in all the Redstarts, induces me to place the present type apart from them. In habits this species appears to be a Redstart, and structurally it does not differ from Ruticilla. From Ianthia, which it somewhat resembles in coloration, this genus differs in having the tips of the tail-feathers rounded.
