Genus UROPHLEXIS

Urophlexis Stejneger, Proc. U.S. Nat. Mus., xv, p. 341 (1892). Type, U. squameiceps Swinhoe.

The genus Urophlexis contains one Warbler, a Winter visitor to India, which is very close to the genera Horeites and Cettia, but is distinguishable at once by its very short tail, which hardly exceeds half the wing in length. The tail is well graduated, the tarsi and feet strong but the hind toe and claw not conspicuously so.
