11 Although recognised by Jouanin & Mougin (1979) [Jouanin, 1979 #2162] apparently the name platei was based on a juvenile plumage phase of nominate bulleri; see Robertson & Nunn (1998) [Robertson, 1998 #3364]. Issue not resolved.
12 Oceanic ranges by subspecies very tentative.
13 For recognition see Hillcoat (1997) [Hillcoat, 1997 #1964].
14 May merit recognition, including also eremita, as a separate species see Abbott & Double (2003) [Abbott, 2003 #11].
