THE MISHMI IXULUS.

Ixulus flavicollis baileyi Stuart Baker, Bull. B.O. C, xxxv, p. 17 (1914) (Mishmi Hills).

Vernacular names. None recorded.

Description. General plumage paler than in I. f. flavicollis and the white shaft-lines extending over the whole of the upper parts: the ear-coverts have none of the bronze tint showing in that bird. Colours of soft parts. " Iris red-brown; bill horny; tarsus dull yellow" (Stevens).

Measurements as in the preceding bird. Distribution. Mishmi Hills.

Nidification and Habits. Not recorded. It is apparently this form which Stevens found in the foot-hills of N. Lakhimpur and the Abor Miri Hills. The birds from the N. Chin Hills are, perhaps, dso nearest this form.
