EXTINCT IN THE WILD

Geographic range:

  • Todiramphus cinnamominus: Formerly Guam (Mariana Is.). Extinct in the wild; small captive population
  • Todiramphus miyakoensis: Known only one specimen, collected in 1887 and supposedly from Miyako-Jima (Ryukyu Islands). Very similar to nominate cinnamominus, and possibly a mis-labeled specimen from Guam. If a valid subspecies, then extinct
