Kofiau Monarch

The Kofiau Monarch is classified as Data Deficient (DD), inadequate information to make a direct, or indirect, assessment of its risk of extinction.

Kofiau Monarch, on the contrary, was the second last bird species to have been formally described from the entire New Guinea region hitherto. This flycatcher was discovered in 1955 by Jusup Kakiaij, S.D. Ripley’s native Misolese assistant back from the days of the Denison-Crockett Expedition to New Guinea, and named by Ripley in 1959 in honor of the late Queen Juliana of the Netherlands. More
