Platalea minor, Temm, and Schlegel, Faun. Jap. Aves, p. 120, pl. 76 ; Sharpe, Cat. B. Br Mus. xxvi. p. 50 ; Seebohm, B. Jap. Emp. p. 231.
Male ad. Differs from F. leucorodia in being smaller, in having the bare forehead and bare portion to behind the eye and the upper throat black ; a yellow spot in front of the eye ; feathers on the upper throat extending in a point towards the chin.

In habits it does not appear to differ from P. leucorodia, but I find nothing on record respecting its nidification.
