Given the plumage and morphometries, the specimen is of nominate D. c. capense, which breeds on subantarctic islands in the western hemisphere (e.g. South Georgia and the South Shetlands), the Antarctic Peninsula and continent (Harrison 1983, del Hoyo et al. 1992).

The other subspecies, D. c. australe breeds at the Snares, Antipodes, Bounty and Campbell islands, off New Zealand, and is smaller and has more white on the upperparts (Harrison 1983). For a comparison of the plumages of these taxa see Fig. 1. How could a southern polar procellariiform reach the warm waters of north-east Brazil? During the austral winter, many birds from the Southern Ocean undertake regular northward movements along the Brazilian coast to c.22°S, mainly occurring at rich upwelling areas like those of the Cabo Frio region, Rio de Janeiro, or high- productivity areas in south and central Sao Paulo (Olmos et al. 1995, Sick 1997). More rarely, some reach waters off north-east and north Brazil. For instance, White- chinned Petrel Procellaria aequinoctialis and Atlantic Petrel Pterodroma incerta have been recorded at the mouth of the Amazon (Novaes 1959, Teixeira et al. 1996), Light-mantled Sooty Albatross Phoebetria palpebrata in coastal Bahia (Sampaio & Castro 1998), and Snowy Sheathbill Chionis albus in Pernambuco (Telino Junior et al. 2001).
