The Maui ʻalauahio (Paroreomyza montana newtoni) also known as the Maui Nui ʻalauahio or Maui creeper, is a species of Hawaiian honeycreeper. It is endemic to Hawaii. The name, Maui ʻalauahio, is somewhat misleading because the species seems to have occurred on most, if not all, parts of the ancient Maui Nui. Its natural habitats are dry, mesic and wet forests, as well as high and low shrublands and plantations. It is threatened by habitat loss.
