● (syn. Dicrurus Ϯ Hair-crested Drongo D. hottentottus) "14. CRINIGER SPLENDENS, T.  (Irena Puella,? Horsf.  Edolius? of Natterer.)  The bill totally dissimilar to the Drongo, with which Irena and Edolius are grouped. It is long, hooked equally in both mandibles, nostrils denuded, and more like the bill of the Chough than any other bird. The chief peculiarity of the bird is a crest, composed of long recumbent hairs, which ride from the head and fall back on the shoulders. The tail is long, slightly forked; the ends of the outer feathers turned up, in the shape of a scoop. In other respects it resembles the Drongo." (Tickell 1833).
