Mount Singgalang, Padang, West Sumatra.
Has alternatively been placed either in genus Chalcocomus or in genus Houppifer, but recent genetic study found no evidence that genus Lophura as currently constituted is polyphyletic#R. Same research identified five clades within Lophura, present species forming a clade with L. erythrophthalma (and L. pyronota)#R. Race hoogerwerfi sometimes considered a distinct species; however, the recent first description of the male indicates that it is “indistinguishable in the field” from male inornata#R, and a photograph confirms this evidence#R, so that, given the minor differences between females of these two taxa, they are clearly to be considered conspecific. Two subspecies recognized.
