Ciridops sp. ‚O’ahu‘

Oahu Palmcreeper (Ciridops sp.)  

This form is known only from subfossil remains collected at Barber’s Point on the island of O’ahu.  

The Oahu Palmcreeper probably reached a size of about 12 cm, it was quite like the Ulaaihawane (Ciridops anna (Dole)) from Hawai’i and Moloka’i, but was slightly smaller and had an even more plump body structure. [1]
