Range Description

Hypotaenidia pacificus is known only from Forster's painting from Tahiti, French Polynesia, in the British Museum (Knox and Walters 1994), from Cook's second voyage in 1773 (Stattersfield et al. 1994), although there were reports from Tahiti until 1844, and from the nearby Mehetia until the 1930s (Bruner 1972).
