LUSCINIOLA ARMANDI.
Lusciniola armandi, (Milne-Edwards), Nouv. Archives. Mus. Bull. i. p. 22 (1865) ; Seebohm, Cat. B. Br. Mus. v. p. 130 ; Pleske, Prjevalsky's Reisen, ii. Vogel, p. 119, Taf. iii. fig. 2. Taf. v. fig. 10 (eggs) ; L. davidii (Swinhoe), P.Z.S. 1871, p. 355.
ad. Differs from L. fuscata in having the bill stouter, the throat and belly greenish white, and the feet more slender, first primary 0.7, second equal to or a trifle shorter than the 8th.
Hab. China and Mongolia., the Muniula mountains on the Tschurmyn river, and the upper Chuanche.
It does not occur in the mountain-forests in summer, but frequents the river-banks where there are dense bush-thickets, and breeds in the deciduous woods close to running water. It breeds in June and a nest was found by Prjevalsky in a barberry bush about five feet above the ground, which was round with the entrance hole in the side, and was constructed of dry grass lined with feathers of Phasianus strauchi. The 5 eggs were white, spotted with clay colour, and in size averaged 15.9 by 12.9 millimetres (0.63 by 0.47 inch).
