Conopoderas luscinia hiwae
Saipan, Mariana Islands.
Previously considered a race of †A. luscinius, or, as in HBW, a synonym, but separated at species level based on comprehensive molecular phylogeny, which found strong evidence that Mariana Is were colonized several times by Acrocephalus and that genetically distinct but morphologically indistinguishable populations on Guam (†A. luscinius) and Saipan (present species) must reflect convergence#R. Species name occasionally misspelt hivae. Monotypic.
Alamagan and Saipan, in Northern Marianas Is#R.
