Nearly allied to Cyanomyia is the genus Hemistilbon.
Male.— Bill longer than the head and straight; wings moderately long and considerably curved; tail rather short and truncate; tarsi clothed; feet rather small; hind toe shorter than the middle toe; nails short and curved.
Although I have placed this genus next to Cyanomyia, I consider that it has some relationship to the Amaziliæ.

In this genus I provisionally place the Trochilus Norrisi, of which a single specimen exists in the Loddigesian collection, but unfortunately is so situated that I could not subject it to so careful an examination as I could have desired.
