Coloration. Resembles Z. palpebrosa. Differs in having the whole upper plumage olive-green instead of golden yellow. The dimensions of the two species are the same.
Distribution. I procured a few specimens of this bird in Lower Pegu round the town of Pegu, and it is probably this species that Feilden obtained at Thayetmyo. Blanford records it from East Nepal (J. A. S. B. xli, pt. 2, p. 157). It is found throughout Southern China.
