Rodrigues Solitaire (Pezophapssolitaria) is an extinct (eighteenth century) flightless bird endemic to Rodrigues Island (Mascarene Islands) and a sister taxon of iconic extinct Mauritian Dodo (Raphuscucullatus) (Columbiformes, Raphinae). Although numerous sub-fossilised bones have been recovered, no soft-tissue samples or taxidermically prepared specimens of Pezophaps solitaria are known to exist.
