Range DescriptionRhodacanthis palmeri was endemic to Hawai`i, USA (Stattersfield et al. 1998). It was considered common by Palmer, Munro and Perkins in the late 19th century, but the latter's specimens from 1896 were the last, and even only ten years later it could not be found by Henshaw (Amadon 1950). There are specimens in Cambridge, Harvard, London, New York and Philadelphia (Greenway 1967).
