The Bornean ground cuckoo (Carpococcyx radiceus) is a large terrestrial species of cuckoo in the Cuculidae family. It is, as suggested by its common name, endemic to the island of Borneo,[1] being found in the sections belonging to Brunei, Malaysia and Indonesia. It is restricted to humid forest. It is threatened by habitat loss. It was formerly considered conspecific with the Sumatran ground cuckoo.
