Bill blue; iris deep red ; eyelids plumbeous; legs fleshy brown; claws pale horn-colour.

Length nearly 5; tail 1.9; wing 2.1; tarsus .7 ; bill from gape .55.

Distribution. The lower hills of Sikhim, the Bhutan Doars, and Assam up to Dibrugarh; thence down to Pegu and Tenasserim, through the hill-tracts of Eastern Bengal and Upper Burma. This species has also been found in Karennee. It is very sparingly spread over the above area and is nowhere common.
