Javan Banded Pitta Hydrornis guajanus



Taxonomy

Taxonomic note
Hydrornis guajanus (del Hoyo and Collar 2016) was previously listed as Pitta guajana and had previously been split into P. guajana, P. irena and P. schwaneri, by the BirdLife Taxonomic Working Group on the basis of many strong plumage differences, some morphometric differences in guajana, and modest vocal differences, as noted by Rheindt & Eaton (2010).

Population justification: The global population size has not been quantified, but the species is described as uncommon to locally common (del Hoyo et al. 2003).

Trend justification: The population is suspected to be in decline owing to habitat destruction and collecting for the cagebird trade (del Hoyo et al. 2003).
