probably south New Guinea opposite Yule Island.
Present species and G. sclaterii probably more closely related to G. cristata than to G. victoria. Formerly considered conspecific with G. sclaterii, but here split on account of its more extensive maroon-brown below, from neck to belly (2); outer greater coverts are grey vs carpal area maroon-brown, extending onto the outer greater coverts (3); dorsal plumage not scaled pale grey (ns); mid-belly to vent maroon-brown vs grey (2); white wing-panel not slightly tinged yellow (ns); slightly longer wing (sample size too small; ns). Monotypic.
S coast of SE New Guinea from Lakekamu Basin#R, Hall Sound and Mt Epa E to Orangerie Bay; identity of most Goura populations between Fly R and Purari R apparently unknown, either this species or G. sclaterii, although there is an old specimen of the present species labelled as being from the Fly R.
