Abstract: A specimen of Nuku pu'u (Hemignathus lucidus Lichtenstein),
collected by the U.S. Exploring Expedition in 1840 or 1841, is shown to have
come from the island of Hawai'i. This is the first specimen evidence of the species
for that island and the first evidence of probable sympatry of H. lucidus
with the 'Akia pola'au (H. wilsoni Rothschild). Skull morphology provides additional
evidence that these two species do not constitute a superspecies.
