Genus CYMODROMA

A near ally of Oceanites, distinguished principally by having the basal phalanx of the middle toe greatly flattened, and equalling or exceeding the other phalanges and the claw in length; claws flattened and broad, spade-shaped, pointed at the end.

This genus of Petrels is chiefly found in the Southern Oceans, but one species appears to have been obtained in the Bay of Bengal.
