356 CAPT. G. E. SHELLEY ON [Juiie 18, 3. On the Birds colleeted by Mr. H. C. V. Hunter, F.Z.S., in Eastern Africa. By Captain G. E. Shelley, F.Z.S. [Eeceived June 6, 1889.] (Plates XL. & XLI.) Mr. Hunter, durino; a sporting-tour in Eastern Africa, ascended the slopes of Kilimanjaro mountain and made a fine collection of birds in that district during the months of June, July, and August of last year. This collection he has presented to the British Museum, where, through the kindness of Dr. Giiiither, I have been enabled to examine the contents. It consists of examples of 95 species, of which I have described seven as new : — Pacliyprora mixta, XenocicMa nif/riceps, Xenocichla placida, Alcippe hilimensis, Cisticola hunteri, Cinmjris hunteri, arid Zosterops perspicillata. Besides these, amongst many other rarities the British Museum acquires the second known specimens of Hapaloderma vittatum and Phiarochroa hi/pospodia, and adds to its stores examples of Tarsiger orientalis, Nectarinia melanogastra, and of the fully adult male of Pholidavges fischeri, of which the female only was known. 1.
