a few miles inland from village of Kaawaloa, Hawaii.
May be more closely related to C. corax than to other crows, based on preliminary genetic analysis#R and supported by morphological features (including large size, especially of bill) and vocalizations. More recent analysis#R, however, indicates that it forms a clade with C. frugilegus. In past, often referred to erroneously as C. tropicus. Monotypic.
Formerly occurred on Hawaii (and probably Maui), in Hawaiian Is; reintroduction planned.
