The Salvadori's pheasant (Lophura inornata) is a bird of genus Lophura, native to Indonesia. It is found in the mountain rainforests of Sumatra. Thus it is also known as the Sumatran pheasant. The species name inornata means "without ornament".

This species is classified as vulnerable. In Kerinci Seblat National Park numbers are reducing due to heavy trapping and hunting by local people for food.

This bird is named after Italian ornithologist Tommaso Salvadori.
