153. TEMMINCK’S WILLOW-WARBLER.
PHYLLOSCOPUS CORONATUS.
Phylloscopus coronatus, (Temm, and Schlegel.) Faun. Jap. Aves. p. 48, pl. xviii. (1847) ; David and Oust. Ois. Chine, p. 269 ; Seebohm, Cat. B. Br. Mus. v. p. 49 ; (Oates), F. Brit. Ind. Birds, i. p. 417.
ad. (Japan). Upper parts greyish olive green, the head darker ; mesial stripe irregular and pale greyish yellow ; superciliary stripe to the nape clearly defined, yellowish white ; two bars across the wing ; under parts white tinged with yellow on the breast and flanks ; lower tail-coverts yellow ; upper mandible brown, lower mandible yellowish ; legs plumbeous ; iris brown. Culmen 0.52, wing 2.4, tail 2.1, tarsus 0.7 inch ; 1st primary about 0.5 long, 2nd intermediate between 6th and 7th. In the winter the plumage is brighter and yellower.
Hab. South-easten Siberia. Corea, and Japan in summer, wintering in southern Pegu, Tenasserim, Java, and Malacca. It has once occurred in Heligoland but has not been recorded from elsewhere in Europe.
According to Godlevski it resembles P. plumbeitarsus in its habits and frequents the foliage of trees and groves, but its call-note and song are different, the former resembling the syllables fititi. Its song is low but melodious. I find nothing on record respecting the nidification except that, like R. occipitalis, its eggs are pure white, unspotted.
A slightly different form which lacks the coronal band (Acanthopneuste ijimoe Stejn. Proc. Nat. Mus. XV. p. 372-1892) inhabits the Idzu Islands, Japan.
Dr. Julius von Madarasz has also described under the name of Acanthopneuste puella a form from Vladivostock, which also lacks the coronal band of which I have seen the type which is he assures me separable from A. ijimoe.
