Diagnosis. This species is similar to
Hampson, the only other species apart from columbina that may have a
distinct white spot in the head-like marking, here resembling the beak of an
eagle. The species is smaller than cornucopia,
with a stronger curvature along the dorsal to basal border of the beak marking.
Geographical range. Borneo.
Habitat preference. All three specimens are from lowland dipterocarp forest
in the G. Mulu National Park, Sarawak.
