Hydrobatidae  

Pelagodroma marina (VAG)   : occurs on Savage Islands, Cape Verde, and Tristan da Cunha, and possibly Gough, Kermadec, Australia and New Zealand; some populations have migratory behavior and others disperse ( Carboneras, 1992). In Brazil, there is only one record of a specimen in Mangue Seco/BA in 1996 ( Lima et al., 2001b).

[ Oceanodroma castro   ] (VAG): occurs in the eastern Atlantic Ocean from Berlengas to Azores, Ascension and Saint Helena, in the Pacific Ocean and in Galápagos. Part of the population is sedentary and another part is highly dispersive. Although it has been mentioned for RJ ( Carboneras, 1992), Fernando de Noronha/PE (IBAMA, 2005) and Atol das Rocas/ Rio Grande do Norte (RN), ( Schulz-Neto, 2004), its occurrence in Brazil is not documented. Alleged historic records for the Brazilian coast may derive from its confusion with O. leucorhoa   (J.F. Pacheco, pers. obs.).
