Mount Kitanglad, 1530 m, Mindanao, Philippines.
Woodcock specimens from Philippines were originally thought to be migrant S. rusticola, but field observations in 1993 suggested otherwise; initially thought perhaps to be attributable to S. celebensis, but subsequent capture and examination of individuals revealed that woodcocks associated with highland cloudforest in Philippines represent this new species#R. Apparently related to S. saturata (with S. rosenbergii) and S. celebensis, and downy young closest in appearance to those of former. Monotypic.
