Birds Collected During Capt. James Cook's Last Expedition (1776-1780)
Journal/Book Name, Vol. No.:
The Auk, vol. 67, no. 1
Corvus tropicus Gmelin, 1788 and Crovus tropicus Kerr, 1792 were widely used for the Hawaiian Crow but the sources for the species descriptions were referable to Dicrurus paradiseus formosus (Cabanis, 1851). Use of Corvus tropicus for the Hawaiian Crow is a misapplication of the name, and Corvus hawaiiensis Peale, 1848 (TSN 179742) should be used. See Banks (1983) for more information

and is provided as a general reference source for interested parties.
However, it is not a legal authority for statutory or regulatory purposes.
While every effort has been made to provide the most reliable and up-to-date
information available, ultimate legal requirements with respect to species
are contained in provisions of treaties to which the United States is a
