Systematic notes on the loons gaviidae aves



Systematic notes on the loons gaviidae aves



Breviora (448): 1-8



The treatment of the loons for the revision of Volume 1 of Peters' Check-list of Birds of the World is presented. The family may be most closely related to the Charadriiformes. The Cretaceous genera Enaliornis and Lonchodytes may be convergent with, rather than related to the loons (contra Brodkorb). Gavia immer and G. adamsii are considered full species but members of the same superspecies, while G. pacifica is considered conspecific with G. arctica. The subspecies G. stellata squamata, G. suschkini, and G. i. elasson are not recognized. The sequence of forms followed is: G. stellata, G. arctica pacifica, G. a. arctica, G. a. virdigularis, G. immer, G. adamsii.
