#92 Citreoline Trogon

Trogon citreolus
IUCN Redlist: Least Concern
Location: Mazunte, Oaxaca, Mexico
Time: 1230 CST November 7, 2011

This was another tough one. The citreoline trogon is the only candidate species that has a recorded range reaching to Mazunte, but usually has a distinct yellow eye. Two similar species are the violaceous trogon (Trogon violaceus) and the black-headed trogon (T. melanocephalus), but the patterning of the tail differs in both species.
