The orange-fronted barbet (Capito squamatus) is a species of bird in the Capitonidae family. It is found in forests in western Ecuador and extreme southwestern Colombia. It is threatened by habitat loss. Both male and female orange-fronted barbets are mostly black and white, and have a red forecrown. The chest of the male bird is very pale yellowish and the throat is white, while these sections are black in the female bird. Unlike the male, the female also has whitish edging to the mantle and wing-coverts.
