This genus was created in 1892 by Alfred Newton in an article published by the journal Nature on the basis of the ʻula-ʻai-hawane, which was named Fringilla anna by Sanford B. Dole in 1879.The bill of these birds was strong. The culmen was arched, and the maxilla overlapped the mandible at the base.
