Genus TRICHOSTOMA

The type of the genus Trichostoma is a bird which for many years after Blyth's institution of the genus remained unknown to ornithologists, or rather was known only by various names which were not recognized as synonymous with Blyth's until I worked up the subject for my ' Birds of Burmah.'

Trichostoma has remarkably long rictal bristles, but does not otherwise differ much from the preceding genera except in having a conspicuously shorter tail. It is in great measure arboreal. Many birds have been placed in this genus which have no connection or affinities with it.
