Genus CYANODERMA

This genus differs from the two preceding in having the culmen straight on its basal half and slightly curved on its terminal half. Also in having the orbits naked and of a bright colour in life.

Sharpe (Notes from the Leyden Museum, vi, p. 176) has been persuaded into uniting his genus Stachyrhidopsis with Cyanoderma ; but I am of opinion that the two genera are quite distinct, and the characters pointed out above should be sufficient to differentiate the two.
