In Prof. Huxley's classification of birds, a sub-order of the Carinatae (or birds having the sternum with a keel), including but one family, the Tinamidae or tinamous. In this suborder the bones of the upper jaw or skull are like what they are in the struthious or swift-footed birds, as the ostrich.
