cline01 (1K)



Scientific Information

Other Names: Napoleon's Peacock-Pheasant; The specific name napoleonis now has priority over emphanum. Source - Dickinson, E. C. (2001): The correct scientific name of the Palawan Peacock-Pheasant is Polyplectron napoleonis (Lesson, 1831). Bull. B. O. C. 121(4): 266-272.

Subspecies: There are no subspecies recognized, but males with white supercillia (often referred to as double-barred in captivity) are sometimes given subspecies status as nehrkornae. This is disputed and the variation is probably insignificant.

Range: The island of Palawan in the Philippines.

Habitat: Forested areas

Status in Wild: CITES I; Vulnerable due to small and fragmented range. Habitat loss, hunting and trade are main sources of decline. Conservation status
