Dark brown starling with pale eyes. Darkest on crown and brightest, with chestnut tinting, on rump and underparts. Endemic to the western half of the Vanuatuan island of Espiritu Santo, where it is found only in remote, rugged montane cloud forest. Behavioral information is extremely sparse, but generally known to forage low in the mid- and understorey, typically singly or in pairs. Reported to give various harsh calls, including a series of repeated buzzy notes.
