Chatham Islands Fernbird

Poodytes rufescens (Buller, 1869)

The Chatham Fernbird (Megalurus rufescens) is an extinct bird species endemic to Pitt Island and Mangere Island (which belong to the Chatham Islands). Its next living relatives are the Snares Fernbird (M. punctatus caudatus) and the New Zealand Fernbird or Matata (Megalurus punctatus). Some scientists considered it as subspecies of the Matata and named it Megalurus punctatus rufescens but most others regarded it as full species. While some scientists classified it in its own genus Bowdleria. most other taxonomists (e.g. ITIS) synonymized it with the Australasian genus Megalurus. Source: Wikipedia
