Merula subobscura Salv., Ann. Mus. Civ. Gen., (2) vii, p. 413 (1889) (Karen Hills); Blanf. & Oates, ii, p. 135.

Description.— Adult male. Similar to T. o. obscurus but larger, with the unite superciliary band less conspicuous, the sides of the body paler ochraceous and the proportions of the primaries different.

Measurements. Wing 153-8 mm. The 3rd and 4th primaries are subequal and longest, the 2nd between the 5th and 6th in length ; in T, o. obscurus the 3rd primary is longest, the 4th a little shorter and the 2nd between the 4th and 5th.

Distribution. This very doubtful race rests entirely upon a single specimen procured by Fea at Taho, in the Karen Hills, North-east of Taunghoo in March. Oates examined the type and was satisfied that it differed from the last bird.
