Abstract: Sichuan-hill partridge (Arborophila rufipectus), which is endemic to China, has been listed as an endangered species in China and IUCN red books. Our researches found that the Sichuan hill-partridge distributes from south-centre Sichuan to north-east Yunnan, including south edge of Daxiangling Mountains, east edge of Xiaoxiangling Mountains, northeast of Liangshan Mountains Chain, and west of Wumengshan Mountains. Relevant administrative areas involve 2 provinces, 5 cities/prefectures, and 19 counties/districts. The whole area is composed by 10 patches of occupied habitat and 36 patches of potential habitat, and the total area is about 5869 km2. “Ganluo-Jinkouhe-Ebian-Mabian-Leibo” and “Leibo-Mabian-Pingshan” are the core areas of Sichuan-hill partridge habitat in Sichuan, while “Suijiang-Yongshan-Shuifu-Yanjin-Daguan” is the core area in Yunnan.
