The White-crowned Cuckoo or White-crowned Koel (Caliechthrus leucolophus or Cacomantis leucolophus) is a cuckoo found in Indonesia and Papua New Guinea, occurring on New Guinea and the neighboring Salawati Island.



This species is often placed in the monotypic genus Caliechthrus but it has a similar song to cuckoos of the genus Cacomantis and is genetically similar to the Pallid Cuckoo (Cacomantis pallidus).
