Cyrtonyx is a bird genus in the New World quail family Odontophoridae.

The genus Cyrtonyx was introduced in 1844 by the English ornithologist and bird artist John Gould.[1] The name combines the Ancient Greek kurtos meaning "curved" and onux meaning "nail" or "claw".[2] The type species is the Montezuma quail (Cyrtonyx montezumae).[3]

The genus contains two species:[4]

Montezuma quail, (Cyrtonyx montezumae)
Ocellated quail (Cyrtonyx ocellatus)
