Translation of manuscript note on accompanying leaf:
T. (brachyurus) with equal violet-black flight feathers on the tail,
a shiny tawny-green body, a black abdomen and black wings.
It is larger than others of its species: four and a half inches.
The beak is black, one inch, and slightly curved.
The top of the head, neck, back, covert feathers on the wings, and
tail are shiny tawny-green. The sides of the head are a shinier
purplish-copper colour. The throat is greenish-black.
The wings are black, and a little longer than the tail.
The tail is violet-black on top, and underneath it is coloured from
purple to violet. The tips of the flight feathers on the tail
have a pale border.
It lives in Jamaica.
Forfiscatus T. curvirostris [The curved-beak...], with very long flight feathers on the sides of the tail, a green body, a blue cap and blue flight feathers on the tail. L.S.N. p. 120
