Genus IXULUS

The genus Ixulus contains three species which are found on the Himalayas and the hill-ranges of Assam and Burma.

Ixulus resembles Yuhina in everything except the shape of the bill, which in Ixulus is shorter, deeper, and more curved at the tip.

The birds of this genus are found in parties, frequenting the branches of trees and feeding on insects.
