Blyth's hornbill, also known as the Papuan hornbill, is a large hornbill inhabiting the forest canopy in Wallacea and Melanesia. Its local name in Tok Pisin is kokomo. Previously, this hornbill was placed in the genus Aceros. It has often been lumped with the plain-pouched hornbill, and sometimes considered to include the Narcondam hornbill and the wreathed hornbill as subspecies. The common name commemorates Edward Blyth, English zoologist and Curator of the Museum of the Asiatic Society of Bengal.
