(Pellorneidae; Ϯ Rusty-capped Fulvetta S. dubius) Gr. σχοινος skhoinos  reed, rush; genus Parus Linnaeus, 1758, tit; "Proparus dubius, Hume.  ... THIS last bird I described with some hesitation; it is a Leiotrichine form allied to Minla and Proparus, but distinct from all known species, I believe, of this group.  ...  In some particulars it closely resembles Mr. Mandelli's Minla rufogularis  ... Could it be that my bird is the female, rufogularis the male?  ...  I am much puzzled about the location of this species. The wings are short and bowed, the fifth quill is the shortest, the sixth subequal, the bill is essentially Parian, but rather too much compressed and raised on the culmen. The tail is long and narrow and much rounded, perhaps cuneate is the proper term. The tarsus very stout, the feet moderate, the hind toe and claw long. It is structurally very similar to vinipectus, but alike in bill, tarsus and feet is more robust. The two clearly go together, but they are not in my opinion congeneric with chrysotis (vel chrysæus), Hodgson, and they are both more or less reed and grass-haunters. I would separate them as Schœniparus." (Hume 1874); "Schœniparus, g. n., type Proparus dubius, sp. n. (Hume, J. A. S. B. (n.s.) xiiii. pt. 2, p. 107), Tenasserim; A. O. Hume, Str.
