Psilopogon asiaticus, John Aubrey Clarendon Latham, 1790
The blue-throated barbet (Psilopogon asiaticus) is an Asian barbet with bright green, blue and red plumage, native to the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia. Barbets and toucans are a group of near passerine birds with a worldwide tropical distribution. The barbets get their name from the bristles which fringe their heavy bills; this species eats fruits and insects. They frequent evergreen forests, deciduous forests, gardens, orchards, teak forests and cities with fruiting trees.
The turquoise-throated barbet was formerly considered a subspecies.
