Genus Anthocephala Cab.

This generic term has been proposed by Dr. Cabanis for the bird I have figured under the name of Adelomyia floriceps, which is at present the only species of the form known; for, although I have ventured to place with it my Adelomyia? castaneiventris, I am unable to say, from the imperfect materials at my command, whether it really belongs to the present or to some other genus.
