Columba Du Petithouarsii
Tuhuata, Marquesas Islands.
Belongs to the large species-group centred on P. purpuratus (which see); most closely related to †P. mercierii, and these two have usually been associated with the P. purpuratus subgroup, but genetic data place them in a subgroup apart#R. The same genetic data suggest races of present species are incompletely separated or are experiencing renewed gene flow. Two subspecies recognized.
