Genus Hemiphaga

Hemiphaga is a genus of large pigeons from New Zealand. The two are traditionally considered conspecific, but in 2001 it was proposed that Hemiphaga chathamensis should be considered a separate species instead of a subspecies of Hemiphaga novaeseelandiae. It is here listed as a species, although few authorities outside New Zealand have followed this.

Species

New Zealand Pigeon (Gmelin, 1789) (Hemiphaga novaeseelandiae)
Chatham Pigeon (Rothschild, 1891) (Hemiphaga chathamensis)
