The Aceh Pheasant (Lophura hoogerwerfi) also known as Hoogerwerf's Pheasant or Sumatran Pheasant is a medium-sized, up to 55cm long, bird of the Phasianidae family. The male is a crestless bluish black pheasant with bare red facial skin, short tail and grey legs. The female is a rufous brown bird with a dark bluish grey legs and short dark tail.
Its appearance resembles and sometimes is considered as a subspecies of the Salvadori's Pheasant. The female is different from the latter for having darker brown, lack of buff mottling and plainer plumage.
An Indonesian endemic, this little known pheasant inhabits to mid-mountain forests of Gunung Leuser National Park in Aceh province. Previously known only from two female specimens, it was recently discovered in a market in Medan, North Sumatra.
The name commemorates the Dutch ornithologist and taxidermist Andries Hoogerwerf.
Due to ongoing habitat loss, small population size and limited range, the Aceh Pheasant is evaluated as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
