Hose's broadbill (Calyptomena hosii) is a species of bird in the Eurylaimidae family. It was named after zoologist Charles Hose. It is endemic to highland forests in northern Borneo.[2] It is threatened by habitat loss. It has a blue belly, but otherwise it resembles the other members of the genus Calyptomena.

The common name and Latin binomial commemorate the British colonial administrator, zoologist and ethnologist Charles Hose.[3]
