Genus THRINGORHINA

The genus Thringorhina contains four species of peculiar coloration characterized by the very large operculum over the nostrils. The bill is very strong, with the culmen curved gently throughout, and the rictal bristles are weak. The feathers of the forehead are harsh to the touch and those of the crown ample and erectile, possibly forming a short crest in life. This genus is very close to Stachyris and like that genus the birds contained in it all lay pure white eggs.
