The Tomtit is one of four species of the genus Petroica found in New Zealand, the ancestors of which having colonised from Australia. The species was once thought to have been descended from the Scarlet Robin, [1] although more recent research has questioned this. It seems likely that there were two colonisation events, with the North Island Robin and the South Island Robin descended from one event and the Black Robin and Tomtit from another.[2]The Tomtit is one of four species of the genus Petroica found in New Zealand, the ancestors of which having colonised from Australia.
