The Choco Trogon is distributed along the Pacific side of the Andes from Colombia to Ecuador. See the distribution map at Birdlife International. It is found in humid forest at mid-levels and up to about 1,800 metres.

This is a photo of a female with its black and yellow bill, red belly and grey head and breast and with a white iris. The underside of the tail is black. Unlike the Ecuadorian Trogon T. mesurus there is no white line between the breast and belly. The male is blue-green above with a greenish-blue uppertail and rump.
