Chachalacas, Guans and Curassows (Cracidae)

Trinidad Piping-guan (Pipile pipile) - HBW 2, p. 353

French: Pénélope siffleuse German: Trinidadguan Spanish: Pava de Trinidad

Taxonomy: Crax pipile Jacquin, 1784, Orinoco River near Cumaná; locality probably erroneous.
All members of Pipile have been placed in genus Aburria, and previously even in Penelope. Present species forms superspecies with P. cumanensis, to which it is very closely related, and P. cujubi; all three often treated as conspecific; the more distinct P. jacutinga also sometimes included in the superspecies, or even in expanded species, making genus Pipile monospecific. Monotypic.

Distribution: Trinidad.
