(synPycnonotus Ϯ Ruby-throated Bulbul P. dispar) Med. L. rubinus  ruby  < L. rubeus  red  < ruber  red; L. gula  throat; "Br. gularis would seem to be a true congener of Br. dispar, (Horsf.,) Sw.  To the type of the two latter species, I shall now provisionally give the name Rubigula   ...   Rubigula, nobis.  There is unfortunately no specimen in the museum from which I can define this group, but of the present series it makes the nearest approach to Pycnonotus, and has the rump uniformly coloured with the back, and a subquadrate tail, unlike the next form [Brachypodius]. The species (at least in the male sex) are remarkable for the brilliant ruby, or sometimes orange-ruby, hue of the throat, the feathers of which are rigid and glistening. Three species would appear to have been ascertained.   1. R. dispar, (Horsfield), Lin. Tr. XIII, 150. Malay countries.   2. R. gularis, (Gould), Proc. Zool. Soc. 1835, p. 186; Brachypus rubineus, Jerdon. Southern India.   3. R. ——, (Temminck), p. c. 382, fig. 2, as noticed in Griffith's 'Animal Kingdom,' VI, 390. Java."
