Genus Doricha Reichenb.

Not less beautiful in the colouring of their gorgets are the members of the genus Doricha. The D. Elizæ, the Guatemalan bird known as enicura, and the less-known Bahama species D. Evelynæ are all associated by me in this genus; and if the plates on which they are respectively figured be referred to, it will be seen how beautiful are the throat-markings of the males.
