On the 18th ult. I procured a fine example of this fly-catcher a few miles from Falmouth; it was affecting some partly cleared land on the side of a hill near the Four-mile Creek, I had noticed it the day previous in a young Eucalyptus gigantea, and resorted to the spot on the following morning with a view of looking for it, when I was fortunate enough to find it in the same tree. On dissection it proved to be an immature male attired in the dress of a female, one of the peculiar characteristics of the species.
