Henderson Reed-warbler (Acrocephalus taiti) - HBW 11, p. 630
French: Rousserolle de Henderson
Spanish: Carricero de Henderson
Other common names: Henderson (Island) Warbler/Sparrow
Taxonomy: Acrocephalus taiti Ogilvie-Grant, 1913, Henderson Island, Pitcairn Islands.
Has been treated as conspecific with A. rimitarae and A. vaughani, but basic differences in sequence and pattern of leucistic plumage among the three taxa suggest substantial genetic differentiation at species level; as they are separated by great distances of open ocean, gene flow among them is probably less than minimal. Monotypic.
Distribution: Henderson I, in SW Pitcairn Is (S Polynesia).
