Genus STACHYRIDOPSIS

This genus differs from the last in having the culmen perfectly straight. It seems to be a form intermediate between Stachyris: and Mixornis and then leading into Alcippe. In the genus Mixornis, however, the nostrils are oval and exposed whereas in Stachyridopsis they are covered with a membrane somewhat as in the two preceding genera.
