Illustration not included in supplement volume
Specimens of this bird were sent by Mr. Whitely from British Guiana, and we were induced to figure it under the idea that it was new to science.
Mr. Salvin, however, considers that it is the adult male of M. primolina, and the name of M. heterocerca will have to be suppressed.
