Negros Fruit-DovePtilinopus arcanus
Pigeons and Doves (Columbidae)
This tiny fruit-dove, with its distinctive ring of bare yellow skin about the eye, is known only from the island of Negros in the central Philippines. Aside from a single female that was collected on Mount Kanlaon in 1953, nothing else is known about this bird. Given this, it could be rediscovered high in the canopy of either lowland (Panay) or montane (Negros) forest.
