Description

A single species, the Wattled Crane.

Taxonomy

Bugeranus is a monotypic genus in the family Gruidae.

Grus vs. Bugeranus

Sibley & Monroe (1996) place the Wattled Crane (carunculatus) in the genus Grus. However, Howard & Moore (2003) and Clements (2007) separate it in the monotypic genus Bugeranus, and the Opus follows in this consensus.
