Working for birds in Africa

The bright sides of stumbling over a new bird species

p 24-25

On 4 June 1991 a new species of perdicine was discovered in montane forest in Tanzania. It turned out to be a distinct genus, with the closest relatives among the hill partridges in the Indo-Malayan region. The paper describing the species is to be found in Ibis 136: 2-11. This article gives you the unofficial background story. Thomas Lehmberg and Lars Dinesen
