Genus Chlorostilbon Gould

Under this generic appellation, for a form of which I always intended the C. prasinus to be the type, I have figured the whole of the little green Humming-Birds; but I now see the necessity of subdividing them; I shall therefore restrict the term to the following species—angustipennis, Haeberlini, Phaëthon, aureiventris, prasinus, Atala, brevicaudatus, Napensis, Peruanus, Daphne, and chrysogaster, and adopt Dr. Cabanis’s genus Panychlora for Aliciæ, euchloris, Poortmanni, and stenura.
