Pterodroma rupinarum

The Pterodroma rupinarum is classified as Extinct (EX), there is no reasonable doubt that the last individual has died.

Summary Pterodroma rupinarum was one of three petrel species known only from the fossil record of St Helena (to UK)1. It presumably became extinct after the island was discovered in 15021. Ecology: It may have bred throughout the interior of the island. It is likely to have foraged over the sea. Threats It presumably became extinct due to predation by people and introduced comensal species. References 1. Olson (1975b). More
