I add a description of the Dicceum Concolor. Above brownish olive, wingsand tail darker, beneath greenish white, irides brown. Bill dark plumbeous, legs andfeet brown. Length about 4 inches—wing 2fg—tail 1-jV—tarsus i—bill (front) -rVths, atgape ^ths. The bird is figured on the branch of a tree well known on the Neilgherriesunder the name of the pink arbutus, which is I believe a species of Thibaudia. * Journ. Ae.
