(syn. Ardenna Ϯ Flesh-footed Shearwater A. carneipes) Gr. ἡμι- hēmi- half-, small < ἡμισυς hēmisus half; genus Puffinus Brisson 1760, shearwater; "PUFFINUS CARNEIPES CARBONARIUS Mathews. ... This species has been commonly and consistently placed in Puffinus, although we read in Mathew's account that Solander noted "media inter Nectres & Procellarias," where Nectris was used for the thin-billed Puffinus. ... The bill, retaining the egg-tooth, recalls that of Procellaria parkinsoni Gray, hereafter described. It is short, wide at base and deep; the laterals of the under-mandible are strongly defined, and the nail is very heavy and distinct; the nostrils are distinct on each side of the culmen, but point upwards with a somewhat rounded aperture. It is puffinoid in character, but cannot be classed with any other species I know of. I therefore propose the new generic name HEMIPUFFINUS for Puffinus carneipes Gould." (Iredale 1913); "Hemipuffinus Iredale, Austr. Av. Rec., 2, 1913, p. 20. Type, by original designation and monotypy, Puffinus carneipes Gould." (Peters 1931, 1, 53).
