Nahan's Francolin

Ptilopachus nahani Dubois, AJC, 1905

The Nahan's Partridge (Ptilopachus nahani), also known as the Nahan's Francolin, is a bird traditionally placed in the Phasianidae family. As suggested by its alternative name, it was formerly believed to be a francolin and placed either in Francolinus or Pternistis, but it is now known that its closest relative is the Stone Partridge and together may in fact be the only African representatives of the New World quails (Odontophoridae).
