Trogons (Trogonidae)

White-eyed Trogon (Trogon comptus) - HBW 6, p. 122

French: Trogon aux yeux blancs German: Blauschwanztrogon Spanish: Trogón Coliazul
Other common names: Blue-tailed Trogon(!)

Taxonomy: Trogon comptus Zimmer, 1948, Bahía de Málaga, Colombia.
Closest relatives possibly T. massena, T. melanurus and T. clathratus. Probably forms a parapatric species pair with T. melanurus. Superficial similarity to both T. massena and T. melanurus, combined with extensive sympatry, has led some authors to suggest that present species might perhaps be conspecific with some form currently placed within one or other of these two. Monotypic.

Distribution: W Colombia and NW Ecuador.
