207. Pomatorbinus horsfieldi obscurus

(207) Pomatorhinus horsfieldi obscurus Hume.
THE MOUNT ABU BROWN-FLANKED SCIMITAR-BABBLER.
Pomatorhinus horsfieldi obscura, Fauna B. I., Birds, 2nd ed. vol. i, p. 211.
So far this Babbler has only been recorded from Mount Abu and Seoni, and how far it extends in Rajputana is not known.
Two clutches of eggs in my collection taken on Mount Abu are the usual white eggs but are both undoubtedly abnormally small. One clutch contains three, the other two eggs, and the average of the five eggs is only 22.9 x 17.3 mm. The finder of these eggs, unfortunately, left no details about the nest or site.
