The black-headed pitta (Erythropitta ussheri), also known as the black-crowned pitta, black-and-crimson pitta, black-and-scarlet pitta or black-crowned garnet pitta, is a brightly coloured, ground-dwelling, bird species in the pitta family. It is endemic to the Southeast Asian island of Borneo. It was described by John Gould in 1877, with the type locality recorded as the Lawas River. The pitta was formerly considered a subspecies of the garnet pitta but was split because of morphological and vocal differences as well as apparent parapatry. Order: Passeriformes, Family: Pittidae, Genus: Erythropitta, Species: Erythropitta ussheri (Gould, 1877).
