Mysterious nightjar that is known from a single specimen, of which only a wing was preserved. Similar overall to female Pennant-winged Nightjar, but with white corners to the tail, and a large whitish mark in the outer wing. The specimen was found in shortgrass plains at middle elevations in Ethiopia’s Nechisar National Park. The voice is unknown. Similar to other nightjars, but the pale mark in the wing is larger and closer to the center of the wing.
