French: Pigeon des lauriers German: Lorbeertaube Spanish: Paloma Rabiche

Taxonomy: Columba junoniae Hartert, 1916, La Galga, Palma, Canary Islands.
Probably part of the C. palumbus species-group also including C. unicincta, C. bollii and C. trocaz, but some authors consider it a distinct form only rather distantly allied to this group. C. laurivora is a synonym. Monotypic.

Distribution: La Palma and Gomera, in W Canary Islands; also discovered on Tenerife in 1975, where now established as a breeding bird.
