Genus TARSIGER

Hodgs., P. Z. S., 1845, p. 28. Type, T. chrysaeus.

The genus Tarsiger contains but one species which is very closely allied to the last genus Calliope, from which it differs principally in colour-pattern, having no brilliant colouring on the throat. The tail differs somewhat in being mucronate, though the feathers are not so distinctly pointed as they are in the next genus, Ianthia, between which and Calliope it seems to form a connecting-link.
