Chachalacas, Guans and Curassows (Cracidae)

Baudo Guan (Penelope ortoni) - HBW 2, p. 347

French: Pénélope d'Orton German: Ortonguan Spanish: Pava de Orton
Other common names: Orton's Guan

Taxonomy: Penelope ortoni Salvin, 1874, Mindo, western slope of Pichincha, Ecuador.
Has been considered a race of P. montagnii, but ranges contiguous, with overlap in W Ecuador and possibly also in SW Colombia, without any trace of intergradation, so they probably do not even form a superspecies; apparently closest to P. marail (see page 313). Monotypic.

Distribution: W Colombia and W Ecuador.
