Small, long-tailed, mostly black guineafowl with a white ruff around the neck and a bare red head. Found on the ground in lowland rainforest. Generally rare and local. Usually in groups, which range from small to fairly large. The common call is a repeated, agitated “kyeek.” Also gives a descending trilled call. Similar to other guineafowl, but easily separated by the white neck.
