BINGHAM'S SUTHORA.

Suthora craddocki Bingham, Bull. B. 0. C, xiii, p. 54 (1903) (Loi-Pang-Nan, Shan States).

Vernacular names. None recorded.

Description. "Forehead, crown, nape, back, rump, and upper tail-coverts orange-brown, shaded on the back and nape with olive-brown; the primaries edged externally with white, the secondaries and tertiaries broadly edged with bright orange-brown ; the primary-coverts brown, forming a conspicuous patch on the upper portion of the wing; tail brown, the outer edges of the feathers bright rufous-brown for three-fourths of their length from the base; lores, cheeks and a long supercilium white ; the white of the cheeks extending on to the sides of the neck; ear-coverts brown; chin and throat black, shading into grey on the upper breast; abdomen and under tail-coverts bright orange-brown.
" Upper mandible horny, lower fleshy-yellow; legs and feet fleshy-brown. Length about 4" (100 mm.), wing 1.8" (45 mm.), tail 1.9" (48 mm.), bill 0.3" (7 mm.), tarsus 0.9" (22.8 mm.)." (Bingham.)
Bingham's Suthora is only a race of gularis (verreauoxi Sharpe,. Cat. B.M.), differing from that bird in having the abdomen and under tail-coverts orange-brown instead of white.

Distribution. Mekong water-shed, Kentung State, Shan Hills.

Nidification unknown.

Habits. This little Suthora is evidently a bird of very high elevations, only having been found by Bingham at 8,500 feet.
