A. J. C. Dubois, 1905,
Popoie, Aruwimi River, DRCongo.
Formerly placed in monotypic genus Acentrortyx. Subsequently returned to genus Francolinus, and later thought to belong in Pternistes#R. Recent genetic analysis revealed, surprisingly, a sister relationship between this species and P. petrosus, and hitherto unrecognized vocal and behavioural similarities between the two support the genetic data and the transfer of nahani to genus Ptilopachus#R#R. Monotypic.
NE DRCongo (area bordered by R Aruwimi, R Nepoko and R Semliki) and W & SC Uganda (forests of Budongo, Bugoma and Mabira).
