Genus Saucerottia Bonap.

The next natural section is that of Saucerottia, of which I am acquainted with three species distinguished from the Erythronotæ by their larger size, stouter bills, and by their more uniform dark-green colouring. All are confined to a comparatively limited area—namely, Costa Rica, Veragua, Panama, and the northern parts of New Granada.
