(926) Suya crinigera yunnanensis.

The Yunnan Brown Hill-Warbler.

Suya crinigera yunnanensis Harington, Bull. 13.0. C, xxxi, p. 110 (1913) (Momien, Yunnan).

Vernacular names. None recorded.

Description. A very dark bird, the head almost unicoloured blackish in the breeding-season.

The Winter plumage is still unknown.

Colours of soft parts as in the other races.

Measurements. Wing 52 to 57 mm.: culmen about 11 mm.

Distribution. Yunnan and Shan States ; in the latter Harington found this bird breeding freely, but its distribution "West is not yet known. Suya crinigera yunnanensis Bangs & Phillips, Bull. Mus. Comp. Zool., lvin, 1914, is merely a synonym of this race. La Touche has described two new forms from Yunnan, S. c. bangs. and S. c. parvirostris (Bull. B. O. C, xliv, 1923, p. 412) ; the former seems hardly distinguishable from yunnanensis, whilst the latter is a small-billed bird breeding in a strongly striated upper plumage-

Nidification and Habits. Apparently similar to those of other birds of this genus.
