Genus SPODIOPSAR

Spodiopsar Sharpe, Ibis, 1889, p. 580. Type, Sturnus cineraceus Temm.

The genus Spodiopsar differs from Sturnus in having the covering membrane of the nostril entirely plumed and in having plumage without gloss. The culmen of the bill is slightly curved and not straight as in Sturnus. The sexes are alike and the Summer and Winter plumages do not vary.

There is only one species which enters our limits on migration.
