Phasianus ijimoe, Dresser, Ibis, 1902, p. 656.
Male ad. (Kiu-siu). Differs from P. soemmerringi in having the lower back and rump white, only the concealed bases of the feathers being dark, the rest pure white ; the dark feathers on the upper parts lack the golden yellow margins, and have narrow, purplish black edges ; the under parts are as in P. soemmerringi, but more rufous in tint and less marked with black. Culmen 1.4, wing 8.7, tail 29.0, tarsus 2.4 inch. The female resembles that of P. scintillans, but has the upper parts darker, and the middle tail-feathers uniformly coloured without transverse markings.
Hab. The island of Kiu-siu, Japan. I have no information respecting the habits or nidification of this Pheasant.
