The genus Drepanis, includes two species, the Hawaii Mamo (Drepanis pacifica) and the Black Mamo (Drepanis funerea). Both species are, according to all accounts, extinct. It is believed that the extinction of the Hawaii Mamo was as a result of the way in which it was destroyed for the sake of its rich yellow feathers, used in former days to decorate the state robes of the chiefs of the locations where it was found.
