SUTHORA

(Sylviidae; Ϯ Black-throated Parrotbill S. nipalensis) Nepalese name Suthora for the Black-throated Parrotbill (see Temnoris); "By Erythrocephalus I pass, however, to a new subgeneric (?) type, too marked to be confounded with Parus; and which I shall denominate  Suthora, from the native name, which is a contraction of Sugathora, quasi Psitticirostrum.  Genus Parus.  Subgenus Suthora nobis.  Bill in the highest degree short, stout, and solid; exceedingly compressed throughout and truncated; as high at the base as long, with plane sides and obtuse ridges, the latter of which are greatly convexed from above and below in all their length: mandibles equal: tomiæ free and blunt: points squared.  ...  New species and type. Suthora Nipalensis nobis" (Hodgson 1837).
