Arfak Mountains, New Guinea.
Wattles of bare skin on neck and solitary behaviour at nesting mound may imply that species is more closely related to Alectura than to Talegalla, although breeding habits of latter virtually unknown. Doubtful races pyrrhopygius#R (Vogelkop) and arfaki (Arfak Mts) currently treated within nominate; also provisionally included is hypothetical population of Yapen I (known from single specimen), which might be a separate race, as bare skin of head and neck are red, not pale blue-white#R. Two subspecies currently recognized.
