  Comment: Kauai Amakihi: H. kauaiensis was a name proposed by Doug Pratt because when Kauai Amakihi is placed in Hemignathus, its original name, stejnegeri, is preoccupied by a subspecies of Greater Akialoa. That conflict no longer exists with placement of Kauai Amakihi in Chlorodrepanis and Greater Akialoa in Akialoa, so the older name is restored. (IOC List v5.3)
