NEOMIXIS

(Cisticolidae; Ϯ Stripe-throated Jery N. striatigula) Gr. νεος neos new, strange; genus Mixornis Hodgson, 1842, tit-babbler; "NEOMIXIS, gen. nov.  Not distantly related to Mixornis, but easily distinguished by the shape of the bill, which is conical and pointed, with a very sharp conical ridge, and scarcely any perceptible rictal bristles. In Madagascar it finds its nearest ally in Bernieria, like which genus it has the culmen as long as the tarsus; but the pointed conical bill is very different from the long thin bill of Bernieria.  The type is  NEOMIXIS STRIATIGULA, sp. n." (Sharpe 1881).   
Synon. Damia, Eroessa.
