Pucrasia Gray, List Gen. B. p. 79 (1841).
Type, Satyra macrolopha Less.
The genus differs from the preceding three genera in having much longer upper tail-coverts and a much shorter tail, the central feathers of which are only about twice as long as the outermost. The head has a well-developed crest and two long plumes of feathers starting from above the ear-coverts. The sides of the face are feathered, not naked. The wings are normally rounded and the second about equals the eighth; the tarsus is short and is armed with a short blunt spur not possessed by the female. I accept four species of the genus, one only of which occurs within our limits *.
