However, Pteroptochos castaneus is confined to the sclerophyllous forest in the southern part of the EBA, often favouring areas with a bamboo understorey. P. castaneus was listed as a subspecies of Black-throated Huet-huet P. tarnii by Sibley and Monroe (1990, 1993), but striking differences in plumage and consistent differences in song and call indicate that it should be considered a full species (Howell and Webb 1995b).
