Genus Chrysuronia Bonap.

The genus Chrysuronia is composed of six species, with pretty, golden tails. The females of most of them are strikingly different; for, although they all have the tail similarly coloured, they are destitute of brilliancy on any part of the body. All are inhabitants of the Andes in New Granada, Ecuador, and Peru, with the exception of the C. Eliciæ, which inhabits countries to the northward of Panama.
