Tropicoperdix is a genus of two species of birds in the pheasant family, Phasianidae. Although formerly classified in the now-defunct subfamily Perdicinae, phylogenetic evidence supports them being a sister group to the tribe Polyplectronini.[1][2][3] They are referred to as East Asian forest partridges.
