Genus RIMATOR

The genus Rimator appears to connect to some extent the more Wren-like Turdinulus with the true Babblers, both in appearance and habits. It is very like the former in its lax plumage and mottled colouring but its long bill, long in our bird but much longer in others of the genus, seems to link it with the Scimitar-Babblers. It is also much like these birds in its habits.
It differs from Turdinulus in its long, slender bill, equal in length to, or much lounger than, the head; the culmen is curved downward and the tip only slightly notched. The rictal bristles are short and the nostrils open ovals. The tail is very short and the tarsi and feet very strong and powerful.
