Black-billed Turaco (Tauraco schuetti) - HBW 4, p. 500
French: Touraco à bec noir
Spanish: Turaco Piquinegro
Taxonomy: Corythaix Schüttii Cabanis, 1879, Tala Magongo, Angola.
Member of the T. persa superspecies. Two additional localized forms (sharpei and finschi) described, but doubtfully valid, owing to much intergradation with emini and nominate schuetti. Two subspecies recognized.

- emini (Reichenow, 1893) - S Sudan, E Zaire, Uganda and W Kenya to NW Tanzania, Burundi and Rwanda.
- schuetti (Cabanis, 1879) - Zaire E to Ituri basin, S to Angolan border.
