Turtur decaocta [sic] xanthocyclus
Minbu and Mangue districts of upper Myanmar.
Hitherto considered conspecific with S. decaocto, but has darker grey on head, with forehead grey not whitish-grey (1); underparts more strongly tinged pinkish and slightly darker (1); broad yellow eyering (3); longer tail (effect size 3.42), which results in outertail feathers showing equivalently more white (2); slightly different song, with same rhythm and structure of three-note strophe, but pitch higher at start and each note lower than the last, creating a greater cadence (at least 1). Monotypic.
Dry plains of C Myanmar; records from China appear all to refer to S. decaocto.
