This bird is very closely allied to the Redstarts structurally, though it has weaker, shorter tarsi and has no red on its tail-feathers and Oates was right in placing it in a separate genus. In habits it is undoubtedly far more Robin- than Redstart-like, and in this respect is very "like Ianthia, from which it is at once easily separated by its rounded tail-feathers.
