The Scaled Ground-cuckoo (Neomorphus squamiger) is a species of cuckoo in the Cuculidae family. It is endemic to the Amazon Rainforest near the Tapajos River in Brazil, but much confusion exists over the exact limits of its range and the features useful for separating it from the very similar Rufous-vented Ground-cuckoo (the breast-markings of the Amazonian taxa are known to vary clinally). Consequently, it has often been considered a subspecies of the Rufous-vented Ground-cuckoo.
