Wilson's Storm Petrel (Oceanites oceanicus)
Oceanitinae is a subfamily of storm petrels. Because the distribution of the subfamily is predominantly in the southern hemisphere they are sometimes known as the southern storm petrels. The subfamily contains five genera in which there are eight species. They were the second group of storm petrels to break off from the ancestral petrel stock, and for this reason some authors have suggested that they should constitute a separate family from the Hydrobatinae storm petrels.
