Genus PYRRHOPLECTES

Pyrrhoplectes Hodgs. in Gray's Zool. Misc., p. 85 (1844). Type, by monotypy, P. epauletta Hodgs.

The genus Pyrrhoplectes contains one species which resembles the Bullfinches in general structure and appearance but has a smaller, less swollen bill and also has the rump concolorous with the lower back. Both sexes have the inner webs of the inner secondaries pure white, a character which separates this Finch from all others found in India.
