Abbott's Booby

Discussion thread for Abbott's Booby. If you would like to add a comment, click the Post Reply button.

------------

Placed in the genus Sula by Clements 6th edition (2007).
Placed in the genus Papasula by H&M (2003), S&M (1996), and IOC (2008).

This seems to be a case where Clements and H&M conflict, and the status quo looks to be Papasula. Wanted to get feedback - is our consensus for Papasula?

Yes.

Remember when you look at scientific names that IOC did not claim to be a taxonomic work, so their scientific names came from somewhere else, so they should not count when you make a consensus. But just the consensus of S&M with H&M should produce ''Papasula'' as the answer.
