The green-legged partridge (Arborophila chloropus), also known as the scaly-breasted partridge or green-legged hill-partridge, is a species of bird in the Phasianidae family. It is found in forests in Indochina, ranging slightly into southernmost China (Yunnan). It is closely related to the Vietnam partridge and chestnut-necklaced partridge, and their taxonomy is not entirely settled.
