The Long-billed Partridge (Rhizothera longirostris) is a species of bird in the Phasianidae family.
It is found in the Malay Peninsula, Sumatra and Borneo. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests, subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, and subtropical or tropical moist montane forests. It is threatened by habitat loss. There are two distinct subspecies; the nominate race R. l. longirostris is relatively widespread, while R. l. dulitensis, sometimes considered to be a full species known as the Dulit Partridge or Hose's Partridge (R. dulitensis), has a very restricted range in the mountains of central Borneo.
