Maui Nukupuu (Hemignathus affinis) - HBW 15, p. 656
French: Nukupuu de Maui
Spanish: Nukupuu de Maui
Other common names: Nukupuu
Taxonomy: Hemignathus affinis Rothschild, 1893, Maui.
Genus sometimes listed as Heterorhynchus, but this name is an objective synonym of current genus name; unclear which name published earlier, and current genus name was adopted using Principle of First Reviser. Species long considered conspecific with H. hanapepe and now extinct H. lucidus, but plumage differences and genetic distances suggest that treatment as three separate species more appropriate. Monotypic.
Distribution: Maui, in Hawaiian Is.
