Genus PYRRHOPLECTES

The genus Pyrrhoplectes contains one species, which resembles the Bullfinches in general appearance and structure, but it has the bill less tumid and the rump is of the same colour as the lower back. It may be recognized from all the other species of Indian Fringillidae by the colour of the inner webs of the tertiaries, which are pure white. Both sexes possess this character.
