Tetraogallus tibetanus.

A.Paler and more sandy on the bead, nape and back……………T.t. tibetanus, p. 429.
B.Barker and more fulvous on the head, nape and back……………T. t. centralis, p. 430.
C.Darkest, less sandy or fulvous on the head, nape and back……T. t. aquilonifer, p. 432.

Tetraogallus tibetanus has been divided into five races by Sushkin, two being newly created by him, whilst Meinerzhagen has added a sixth, which seems just recognizable by its slightly darker tint. It is possible that more ample material for comparsion may prove some of the races to be founded on merely individual variation. Pending such material being available, I retain the three races which 2nd a place within our area.
