Abstract:Two of the five known specimens of the extinct Hawaiian bird
Ciridops anna (Dole, 1878) came to the Museum of Comparative Zoology with
a small collection of Hawaiian birds of unknown origin. Historical evidence is
marshaled to show that this material was almost certainly collected by William
T. Brigham in 1864-1865. Circumstantial evidence suggests that the specimens
of Ciridops anna may have come from the island of Molokai, where the species
was previously unknown during the historic period.
