Genus XANTHIXUS

I institute this genus for the reception of X. flavescens, a Bulbul which differs from all its near allies in the very decided graduation of its tail, the outer feather of which falls short of the tail by a distance equal in Length to the tarsus. The crest resembles in many respects that of Hemixus. The wing is blunt, as in Molpastes.
