Chunky, medium-sized pigeon that is mostly pale green with black wings and a pale wing stripe. Flight is very fast and direct. Sometimes found alone, though more often in small groups. Widespread but erratic; local abundance linked to the availability of fruit, its main food. Found in humid forest, secondary forest, and plantations. Endemic to the island of Mohéli in the Comoros. Voice is a quiet but maniacal combination of sputters, whistles, and cackles. Easily identified, as it is the only green pigeon within its tiny range.
