The Lycocorax pyrrhopterus, common name, paradise-crow or silky crow, is a medium-sized crow-like bird-of-paradise. One of the few monogamous birds-of-paradise, the paradise-crow is endemic to lowland forests of North Maluku in Indonesia. The diet consists mainly of fruits and arthropods. The paradise-crow is approximately 34 cm long with all-dark, soft and silky plumage. It has a black bill, crimson eyes, and a call reminiscent of a dog's bark. Both sexes are similar; the female is slightly smaller than the male. The breeding season is approximately December to June, (Wikipedia).
Here we present the de novo assembled genome totalling 1.07Gb in length, with 3216 scaffolds having an N50 of 4.2Mb, annotated with 17,023 protein coding genes and BUSCO analysis demonstrating a 93.8% completeness.
