In this genus the bill is more slender than in Lobivanellus, whilst the tarsus, which is long and slender, instead of being reticulated throughout, has transverse shields in front. There is no hind toe in this genus. Second primary generally longest in both sexes, first and third subequal. In one or two the first primary is longest but there appears to be no sexual difference.
