Extremely rare ground-dove, possibly extinct. Males are dark gray-blue with broad dark bands on the wings; in flight, exhibit white outer tail feathers. Females are similar but brown. Apparently is (or was) highly dependent on humid forests with flowering bamboo. The song is undescribed, but was reportedly similar to that of Blue Ground-Dove. Also separated from Blue Ground-Dove by the black outer by tail feathers and females with spotted wings.
