Mysterious Starling

Aplonis mavornata Buller, 1887

The Mauke Starling or Mysterious Starling (Aplonis mavornata) was a species of starling found on the island of Mauke, Cook Islands. It is now extinct. The binomen is the result of Buller's misreading of the name inornata on the specimen label. As he seems to have genuinely believed this spelling to be correct, the binomial, although it has no meaning, is valid. Source: Wikipedia
