THE MALABAR WREN WARBLER.

Length, 4 ; wing, 1.8 ; tail, 1.87; tarsus, 0.7 ; bill at front, 0.4. Bill black ; irides buff; legs yellow.

Above dark ashy-grey, brownish on the wings and tail, the latter with a subterminal dark band, tipped white on the outer feathers; beneath white, slightly tinged with fulvescent, greyish on the edge of the neck and breast.

The Malabar Wren Warbler is only doubtfully distinct from P. gracilis; it is thought to be the latter in breeding plumage. If distinct it occurs in precisely the same localities.
