Francolinus griseostriatus


[edit] Identification

[edit] Distribution

Western Africa: Endemic to, and found locally in, escarpment of western Angola

[edit] Taxonomy

[edit] Pternistis vs. Francolinus

Sibley & Monroe (1996) placed this species in the genus Pternistis, but this genus has not been recognized by Clements (2007) or Howard & Moore (2003), and the Opus follows in this consensus.
