Little information. Consumes both fruit and insects. Compared to other species of trogons, insects make up a larger portion of the diet (Skutch 1959). Almost 60% of stomachs (n=27) examined by Remsen et al. (1993) contained only arthropods, and an additional 15% contained both arthropods and fruit; only 22% contained only fruit. Insects specifically noted in the diet include Orthoptera (Locustidae) and Coleoptera (Cerambycidae) (Haverschmidt 1968).
