702. Oreocincla dixoni.
The Long-tailed Mountain-Thrush.
Oreocincla mollissima (Blyth), apud Walden in Blyth's Birds Burm. p. 100; Hume & Dav. S. F. vi, p. 256; Wardlaw Ramsay, Ibis. 1877, p. 463. Geocichla dixoni, Seebohm, Cat. B. M. v, p. 161; Oates, B. B. i, p. 7.
Coloration. Resembles O. mollissima, but differs in having a much longer tail and large and distinct fulvous tips to the median and greater wing-coverts at all ages.
Iris brown; bill brown; gape yellowish; legs dull brownish yellow ( Wardlaw Ramsay).
Of the same size as O. mollissima, with the exception of the tail, which measures about 4.7.
Distribution. I have examined specimens of this species procured in the hills north of Mussooree, in Nepal, at Darjiling, and in Karennee.
