Gartered Trogon | ©Álvaro Cubero Vega  (Esparza, Puntarenas, Costa Rica)

The Gartered trogon, Trogon caligatus (Trogonidae), formerly treated as a subspecies of Trogon violaceus, was recently split into its own species and two other species based on genetic and vocalization data.

Trogon caligatus is found from central Mexico throughout Central America, Colombia, western Ecuador, northwestern Peru and the Maracaibo basin in Venezuela.
