The orange-bellied trogon (Trogon aurantiiventris) is a species of bird in the family Trogonidae. It has been considered a morph of the collared trogon, but most maintain its status as a separate species. It is found in Costa Rica and Panama.


It measures 26 cm (10 in) long. The back, head and breast of the male are green, and a white line separates the breast from the orange underparts. The undertail is white with black barring, and the wings are black, vermiculated with white. The female has a brown back, head and breast, a relatively uniform undertail (not clearly barred), and underparts that are slightly paler than in the male. It is distinguished from the collared trogon by belly colour alone.[2]


Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist montane forests and heavily degraded former forest.
