|Red-moustached Fruit Dove|
Ptilinopus mercierii mercierii
The Red-moustached fruit dove (Ptilinopus mercierii) was an extinct species of dove in the Columbidae family. It was endemic to French Polynesia. The last record was of the subspecies tristrami on Hiva Oa, in 1922. Its extinction has been attributed to predation by the introduced great horned owl (Bubo virginianus), as well as by introduced rats and cats.
