Alternative name: Malaysian Nightjar
- Lyncornis temminckii
Adult resembles Long-tailed Nightjar but smaller and has significantly darker overall plumage, inconspicuous ear-tuffs, diagnostic narrow whitish collar and lacks the obvious whitish markings on wings and tail. The call, which is loud and distinctive, is the best way to distinguish it from other nightjar species when seen in flight at dawn or dusk.
It was formerly placed in the genus Eurostopodus.
Moist lowland forest.
