The Blue Duck (Hymenolaimus malacorhynchos) is a member of the duck, goose and swan family Anatidae. It is the only member of the genus Hymenolaimus, placed in the shelduck subfamily Tadorninae after previously being considered part of the paraphyletic “perching duck” assemblage. The Maori name, sometimes used in English, is whio, which is an onomatopoetic rendition of the males’ call.
